Yes, you can do it.
Yes, but....it will be a pain. It's up to you if the hassle is worth being that cheap.

You have to be ABSOLUTELY SURE every single control surface is moving the right direction and in proper trim before you fly, every time you switch.

Do it often....you will screw up and take a plane out, pretty much guaranteed.

We had a guy at the field. He was a good builder, smart, but cash strapped due to being in collage and having a kid on the way. So he did as you are thinking. He wrecked a lot of planes with the switch by not getting it right, not to even mention the hassle of swapping things over if he wanted to fly a new plane. That alone can take 10"-20" per switch. His planes were home made foam, very accessible, so easy to swap. They also didn't cost much to make so he was mostly out his time and labor when he crashed.

Figure what your time and your planes are worth vs. cost of an RX. It's up to you.
