I had the same problem with my custom "Record-Page" (extends Page) and no access to my Methods that are defined in Record_Controller.

I saw this Entry:

so I add the Contoller manually to the DataObject.

function getFilterRecords() {
   $recordSet = DataObject::get("Record", "`SiteTree`.`ParentID` = '".$this->ID."'$additionalFilter");
   if (!$recordSet || !$recordSet->exists()) return false;
   // add controller
   foreach ($recordSet as $record) {
      $record->controller = ModelAsController::controller_for($record);
   return $recordSet;

In Template:

<% if FilterRecords %>
<% control FilterRecords %>
<h1>$Title</h1> <!-- access via -->

<p>$controller.MyControllerMethod</p><!-- access via the record_controller -->

<% end_control %>
<% end_if %>

I hope this could help too.
