Recently, although the need of marine robots being raised in extreme areas, the basis is very deficient. Fortunately, as the robot competition is vitalizing and the need of the robot education is increasing, it is desirable to establish the basis of the R&D and industrialization of marine robots and to train professionals through the development and diffusion of marine robot kits. However, in conventional case, there is no remotely operated aerial robot-kit based on the balloon for the marine robot competition, which has the abilities of the airborne locomotion and obstacle avoidance. To solve this problem, an aerial robot-kit which has the abilities of the airborne locomotion and remote control, is developed. To verify the performance of the developed kit, test and evaluation such as surge, yaw and pitch is performed. The test and evaluation results show that the possibility of the real applications of the developed kit.
