without a controllable rudder I dont think having a non steerable water missile is safe for anyone.do you have a local hardware store that sales pieces of stainless or aluminum stock?. mine by me do in USA.If it was me id just ..only other way to control boat is with dual esc that control motors. then you slow one motor to turn opposite direction and do the other to turn the other way...good luck in you adventure..

Really no place for actual upgrades for those Chinese boats. Just keep the motors, driveshafts and props and install a new radio/receiver, ESC and servo for rudders.
Doing the build is half the fun and you will be ABSOLUTELY pleased with the end result. I've done it more than once.

I recommend sticking with the original motors, shafts and props.
Ditch the rubbish radio and install a good 2 channel proportional system with an ESC to drive both motors at the same time.
Install a rudder behind the props and control with a proper servo.
I've just converted mine and am very happy with the result.
It's basically a good boat let down by the installed radio control system and lack of a real rudder.
