Looking at converting the Tamiya 1/350 I400 to remote control, will need four channels though. Looking at this for the 1/400 Heller Admiral Scheer.

I will be going with some small brushed Maxon motors. I have used the Novak 75mHz receivers for a larger kit, the Revelle Schnellboot, but getting an ESC into a boat that size is going to be a problem. Want I am really looking for is a ESC/Receiver combo with four channels for the sub.

A 4 channel combo unit (rx + esc) might be hard to find because what high volume rc product would use it? The 2 channel with esc from a car is easy to see being produced in volume. What about some of these helicopter units? The esc will be forward only, of course.

The 2.4gHz units would be find for a surface unit, but I am going to need a 75mHz or 27mHz unit to do a submarine.

I realize that 2.4G does not work with subs, but are all of those cheap heli's 2.4G? More specifically, the older ones that you will find the guts up for sale for cheap? You would need one that is mid grade, with a single main rotor and mechanical tail rotor. That would give you one esc and at least three servo outputs. Any twin main rotor heli will have two esc's and probably a third for a motorized tailrotor (as opposed to a mechanical one).
