Well long story short, the old Blast sank and sat in the water for a few hours before recovery. The receiver and steering servo died. The servo is replaced, and I installed a new TQ receiver.

This leaves me with the old joystick (AM?) radio that I would love to give away for anyone who might use it. However, it is looking like the old thing is going to be landfill fodder.

Anyone know of any vintage collectors who might want the old radio for free?
