    Default Remote control mini skid ?

    Hello DIY experts:

    I have been looking to build a remote (RC) controlled mini skid. I looked at boxer since seem to have done a remote conversion, but they seem to be out of production. I was wondering if any of the mini skids available have electric joystick controls ? It would seem to be easier to convert these to RC remote rather than having to mess with the actual hydraulics. It is my understanding that the Bobcat mini's are NOT electric, which is why they are not available with the Bobcat remote control system (not that I want it).

    Any suggestions ?

    I dont think it will be any cheaper to do rc because you need everything but joystick handles to make it work plus throttle control and a bunch of safety interlocks. Id look at bobcat or hand labor if I were you
