I hear ya' about the telephone signals,
I was surprised to find out about 220 V ring tones!

Many continuous rotation servo control boards will work as reversible ESCs,
since that is mostly what they are. 

I have used analog ones for this purpose, but I see some digital ones are available too. 
Pololu, Servo City, Adafruit, and even Amazon have these servos.

Ya gotta look out for those phone lines... 48 volts there.
Installing wall telephones always seemed to get me. 

With four wires coming out I would often inadvertently brush my arm across the wires and get a nice little shock. 
One is not bad, but if you do it half a dozen times in a day, you get a little jerky.

When I first started doing BPRC I was pulling boards out of cheap RC cars. 
Managed to fry a few boards.

I like the Loco Genies because they're small and easy to install, and work in a more prototypical fashion. 
Regular RC seems to give a much faster response from the transmitter.

These micro receivers seem to be the answer to the size problem,
if I can just find one that will fit my needs, and price.
