The small cheap RC toys apparently have dual H-bridges, one that controls the motor foward/reverse and one that controls electro magnets for the stearing. There are other inexpensive and light weight RC toys like below that might be modified for pop pop boat use.

A company in the UK sells dongles that temporarily convert iPhones into R/C transmitters for relatively inexpensive toy helicopters and cars, and might be interested in developing something for R/C pop-pop boats, if there were any manufactured R/C pop-pop boats to control. Go to http://www.apptoyz.com/ for more about this topic.
