Very interesting. What is steering/turning the drives? Is it a motor/belt/geared?

Il souhaite savoir quel type d'entrainement est utilis pour tourner le pod.

The belt (greyish) is visible in the video above the white support plate.
From what we saw in other posts I assume the belt is driver by a simple motor and there's a rotation sensor (rotatory encoder ?) with tells the control electronics where the pod actually points. From then it's a "simple" control loop.

A 2-axis stick is used on the control end, as seen here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhJLo0chXsg
Acrylic plate restricts movement to a circle (which is more or less what you have on the real thing)
Some quick trigonometry will let you turn the coordinates (X% left or right; Y% forward or reverse) to a bearing.
Controler uses motor and belt to turn the drive until sensor confirms drive is at desired angle.

That last video of mode 2 looks good. So if I understand correctly from the center(neutral) position you can push the stick in any direction and it will go that direction with the amount of throttle based on how far from center it is?

Do you have any idea of price yet?

Pinpinfou is touring Scotland/Wales/Cornwall at the moment. Hopefully he will be able to give more info on his return.
