I would avoid the steel since it is heavy.
You can get cheap lightweight aluminum that wont require beastly motors.

If it is RC than you can buy an RC controller that comes with matching crystals and servo's that plug into a receiving unit.
If you are hacking an RC remote than it is sometimes easiest to use generic DC motors that you can also hack from stuff laying around (people might yell at me for suggesting the DC motors).

For cheap moters you can go to the local thrift store/good will and buy old RC cars/toys and rip them apart for their motors.
