Default New Bright Power horse escavator

Found it from trash and got wild idea for turn it from linecontrol to radio control...Shovel and boom control is made on small electricmotor and lots off cogwheels on inside the boom..Tracks are rubber(usually plastic) with 2 motors on trackdrive. What kind of speedos i need to controll these motors..This escavator will be just for my sons for playing and my first project on this rc area

need a little more info to even begin to give you any ideas.

what size motors are they? are they wired series? parellel? do they require thier own seperate esc per motor? how much voltage do they need to operate?.............

lots of factors determine what esc's can be used.

They are wired series and whole system uses 4pcs of 1.5v AA batterys...
And they probably need own ecs per motor..Hm or change servo to 360 conversion to drive shovel and boom??..

The hydraulic cylinders look very scale - excellent. It would be interesting to see a picture or 2 of how they actually operate and where they are placed (small elec. mtr with lots of gears).
