Help!
Transmitter/Receiver needed

Hello all,
I am new to the hobby/forum. I have this cheap Nikko 49MHZ boat but I have misplaced the transmitter. I want to tinker with it and want to know if I can purchase a similar receiver and transmitter for it.Name: uploadfromtaptalk1408422459510.jpg

49MHz is pretty much just for ready made RC. To get a matching one would need a chat with Nikko.
The radio in the boat has all the items on one board, using hobby grade you would need a receiver and a speed control and a servo to work the rudder. If there is no rudder, 2 ESCs and a transmitter that can mix.
Good news and bad news.
With modern 2.4GHz, it would probably fit in the same space, thats the good news. The bad news is that even a low price outfit would probably cost more that the boat is worth in strict cash terms.

Black lumps on the chunks of alloy would suggest no rudders?

Regards Ian.

It does have a separate servo for the rudder and a forward and reverse motor for the propeller. Thanks for the input.
