Umi, The additional parts list will really be pretty simple. The motor is a standard 6V Speed 280. I'll use a forward only Airplane type ESC w/BEC and probably a 6 cell 3300 NiMH battery since a good bit of ballast will be required anyway. A Micro servo was used for the rudder since even a small servo in the hull looks pretty big, and of course, a simple 2 ch. radio.

So far, all the components have come from the scrap box, but are all readily available from Hobby Shops or mail order places that handle R/C airplane stuff -- with the exception of the surface frequency radio which is also available from the same sources.

BTW, anyone out there who has never tried converting a plastic kit and would like to give it a try, please feel free to post up with specific questions. There's lots of good help available here on the forum.
