How to control servos/motors remotely? Answered

 Hi,

I want to control some servos remotely. I'll be using a picaxe, either 08 or 18x, and I was wondering what hardware to use for RF transmission (remote) and receiving (please don't just tell me to take apart a toy car, I don't have one on hand and I want to do this myself). Also, some tips on how to code this would be great.

Oh and parts wise I'd prefer to buy through Sparkfun, especially as they're going through the whole getting sued by SPARC thing.


Thanks!
