Default Radio Control Locomotives

I checked these out this afternoon. Don't waste your time. They're slow, there's almost NO control surface authority, but I gotta admit they hold a line better than a pattern ship. It's like they're on railroad tracks or something. I don't think it's going to catch on, though.
