I don't think so.
Maybe you are getting some strange electrical phenomenon from the BEC.
What you might want to do is unplug the 5V. components, and fire it up.
It sounds like the only thing that you are running on 5V is the receiver...
You may want to disconnect 2 of the motor wires in case it goes into failsafe, or better yet, take the esc out of the loop for testing purposes.
