Well if you can come with something in PIC form, Dave, then I can certainly rustle up the hardware.
I have one of those little RC Sharks like Brian Alps.
I was surprised at the radio range he got from his- mine was woeful, just a few feet (along not down), and the signal was lost. I booted the transmitter voltage upto 12 volts- crude but effective.
The batteries onboard are hopeless, and I just don't think it's powerful enough. The turning circle is too wide, it's tiny and it's a tricky little critter to trim.
So quite a few moans, and I think it can easily be improved upon. I guess you can't complain too loudly for the money these things sell for.
The advantage with the MT1 design, is that it has a full body undulating motion design, which makes it a better swimmer than the little R/C shark which just flaps it's tail from side to side courtesy of a scotch yoke.
