    Think rc conversion is doable given the size of the hull

    Looks like a very interesting project. (i can't get the first link to work - goes to some gun site.)

    In the process of looking for the link, I found what may be a useful review of a static build:

    i own one, and personally, it will make a wonderful design study to build something r/c in 1/16 scale (2.1875 x larger)
