its controlled by a toy R/C, so i used an indepentand motor control to this craft.it runs so fast, with toy motors, i replaced its armature windings to the specifications to 7.2 volts.and replaced its plastic back with brass bushes taken from an old car stereo cassete player.it can turn from a stand still within its lengts, can cruise with one motor, with a slight directional correctios, and drops only 700 Ma at full load.i replaced all motor driving transistors on toy R/C reciever board with D882, and D772 respectively to with stand a rough handling...after adding  a RF booster circuit in front of the reciever antenna, i am getting a range of 600 meter square.

as the whole firing systems are controled by sensors, no need of any conventional weapons found in older PT boats...
