Hi Guys,
I just read about an idea like this that used two Novak Super Rooster RC car ESC's with reverse and a mixer on a battlebot site.
So...Matthew, Marc do think this will work?  I'll back track through my search and see if I can find the battlebot site.

set it up for a "V-tail"aircraft or"elevon mixing" it should be in the 
manual as one or the other

left elevon or elevator=left track
right elevon or elevator=right track

you will still need a way to power the motors though

i attached a v-tail aircraft for an example as to how it works

there is also an easier option you car buy a "V-tail mixer" or a "elevon- 
mixer" it will automatically mix them and you can plug speed controls or 
servos into them
