Remote helm

Has anyone heard of a remote helm.

That way could could control the throttle, shift and steering from a wireless hand held box.

For someone single handing it would be handy to be able to control the helm from the bow.

Probably would be pretty easy to do with the new pod drives.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
