    Looks like its 2.4GHz, what kind of receiver is in the boat ? is its integrated to the ESC ?


    If it has a separate receiver and ESC then it should not be to hard to convert it to a 2.4GHz 4CH stick radio.

    Another option is to pull the wheel transmitter apart and build it into a stick transmitter.

    that's it phil, just glue a long lever to it
    you might have to clamp of the body of the receiver so you can use the long lever
    the throttle will be the trickiest to do
    maybe you'll need to take it apart for the trigger to be removed
    hot glue gun might be good to glue a lever onto it

    ive got the same type of cheap boat , they work ok except you dont always get warning that the battery pack is about to go flat. sometimes the boat slows down allowing you to bring it in at other times it just stops , no warning.
    last time it stopped i had to swim out to recover it.

    if they use Lipo or Lion batteries it would pay to fit one of these >
