Definitely possible, just make sure the console it very low slung or you'll raise the centre of gravity too much. Wouldn't put it at the front of the boat either, you'll be plowing through the water. Maybe 1/2 way up the deck. On the genuine thundercats the floor is either plywood or carbon fibre, only the chinese imitation boats use alloy floors.
There was even a racing series in Bermuda using the 3m thundercats with consoles for under 12s. Personally I'd go tiller every time, cornering and responsiveness are the best aspects of these boats and you'd never match them using a wheel and throttle controls!
