Lightbulb Ceiling Fan Wiring Question

I'm doing the opposite of what most people with ceiling fans do. I purchased a fan with a remote speed/light control only, but want to operate it from two light switches (one dimmer for fan speed, one for light). I was hoping to remove the remote control unit (packaged separately in the box) and use the remaining wires as a typical fan. The remote control receiver has a 2-wire input (hot/neutral) and for output there are motor high and low wires, neutral, and lamp wires. Is there any reason that removing the receiver and wiring the light as normal and the motor on a dimmer wouldn't work?

I fear I'll keep losing remote controls and it seems like another thing to break in my fan. I like to keep things simple and reliable. The has no provisions or instructions for not operating on remote control.

You are correct. You may use this fan without the remote control with no problems.
