Having built 2 x TP52's (Pegasus and Samba52) in the 2006 era and raced them for many years. I can say that trying to put them into a RC version would be cool for the trophy case but not on the water. They would be very slow compared to a Marblehead or 10 rater.
In the lobby of StFYC is a replica of Samba52. It looks great in the glass case.
It might be wise take your efforts to the 10 Rater class rule. The boats look and sail like 'real' big boats.
Here is a pic of my most recent 10 rater.
