Default Help understanding radio gear


I have a CLOD BUSTER that I will be customizing.

I currently want to get it up and running and the last thing I need is radio gear.

My intention is to have two servos to drive the 4 wheel steering, one front and one back. I want to be able to switch off rear steering on the fly. So that requires two channels.

I will also be running two ESCs as it will be brushless running on LiPo and last time I looked there is no ESC that can handle that.

The question is do I need a 4 channel radio or can I run a 3 channel with y harness connecting the two ESCs (I want them running at the same speed!).

The next question is how do I know that the radio gear I am looking at has the capability to do what I want to it to do. Is there some terminology that I am not familiar with that will tell me if it does this?

For instance I've been looking at these:
KYOSHO SYNCRO RADIO SET KT331P Tx Rx KR331 2.4 Transmitter

Any advice is very gratefully recieved!

I would recommend going with a 4 or 5 channel controller. forget about doing the y connection. It is always better to ad more channels then if you need them for upgrades later you have them.
Look at this controller, it will do everything you need and more....

Thanks, Marty.
