Well, starting with an eight channel receiver would be good but perhaps not necessary. Back when I did twin electrics, Castle Creations was a great help in setting up twin motors. You don't give any specifics of your setup, transmitter, receiver, etc. That would help getting some suggestions.

Is this for a twin engine electric plane? if so, why do you want separate channels for the two brushless motors? Just Y-connect the two ESCs to the receiver and hook up the servos as you would with any other plane (use a Y for dual aileron and flaps servos if necessary).

The recommended way to set up dual brushless motors/ESCs is:
1) Use one common battery pack for both ESCs (with a Y-connected power lead)
2) clip the power lead one of the ESC receiver connectors if necessary. This is necessary if both ESCs have a BEC (voltage regulator), and if the BECs cannot be connected in parallel. Some ESCs with BECs can be connected in parallel, like the Castle Creation Phoenix line of ESCs.

At the bottom of the header bar is a site called Watt Flyer just for electrics.
