This steam-powered RC tank called “Lobster” is CrabuFu’s latest creation. It comes equipped with a “3 channel radio control system: one for steering, one for engine’s forward and reverse / throttle, and one for the steam whistle. “Video after the jump.

As usual, I used an old & used Tamiya 1/16 tank chassis with clutch drive for skid steering. Electric motor was removed, and Regner steam engine just barely fit into that space. Bottom of the aluminum chassis were cut a bit to mount the engine
