looks pretty simple to make , just needs a lot of servos


and what kind of R/C is that? He likes rotates it  or something to control the fish.
Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!

It's a Airplane Radio. Probably a 6 channel. You can get them from tower hobbies.

Kinda reminds me of a MudSkipper.

Its actually a helicopter transmitter (think swashplate control), and the "fish" has 4 servos...

Looks like a DX7 Spektrum radio. I have a DX6 for my helicopter. :P They are great, I have never had ANY interference!

I dont think it would matter

Looks like standard servos though  , probably Hitec or Futaba

They look like they are mini servos. Probably the S75 that come with the radio.
