That is a dream for all of us, cheap and simple. I have seen WTCs (Water Tight Containers) made with simple devices and common materials. My Aluminaut is using less-expensive parts (ESC-Electronic Speed Controller for ~$7 US), the most expensive part is the receiver (~$40 US), but there are receivers out there for about ~$20 US - You get sometimes what you pay for.

Browse some of the works in progress at this site and others. You will see it can be done.
