Default control 6 wheels independently

What receiver/transmitter will allow me to independently control 6 wheels?
The 6 channel transmitters I'm seeing are geared towards airplane and boat controls in which the 5th and 6th channels are usually just on/off switches for the rudder/flaps,etc.

I have 6 wheels powered with a continuous rotation servo at each.

I figured it'd be easy if I can just find a 6 channel receiver and a transmitter to control it.
This would allow me to have all 6 move forward when I want that to happen or allow me to do the selective movement of just motor 1/motor 6 or something like that.

The robot is more of a 3 axle train like robot connected with mobile joints in between the axles so it is a bit different than what's been done before.

Any easy way?

Thanks in advance.

only thing I can think of is you could maybe get 2 cheaper airplane controllers, and just make a custom controller box, tape them together, or something. and just use 2 RX's
