Yes. But the only problem is with just a steering wheel you'll only have one axis of movement. That is unless there is some way to switch control back and forth.

Looks like you have to add servos to the mix and a receiver. But it's not a bad price for the head.

You need a transmitter with at least 2 channels that don't have a spring return. Like a 2-3 channel airplane controller.

You could probably adapt something like this to work.
