If I move a servo back and forth with a capacitor plugged into the RX I can get the spektrum RX to flicker and light up if I have the TX on for it to connect to. The servo acts like a generator powering the RX and the capacitor makes it easier since its holds some of the charge like a temporary battery.

I plugged in a voltmeter to the RX and I could generate 4 volts by moving the servo back and forth. Its easy experiment on an rc car since they usually only have one servo and a capacitor plugged in
