That is a power supply problem. Either the BEC is bad or the battery is flat... As Frank said, try doing the test with a regular receiver battery, or different ESC/BEC and battery.

Cheers FrankS,

i made up a make shift rx battery lead, the rx was being fed by a 450mah 2s and all was fine,

i have not yet done the conversion, as i wanted to make sure all the other electronics were absolutely fine.

now i know it all works fine, i can go ahead with getting all the other parts i need

If you are running the receiver on a 2s LiPo with no BEC or ESC, be careful!

Most FM and some 2.4 were designed for a 4-cell NiCd or alkaline pack or 5-cell NiMH (i.e., 4.8-6v) and may not take kindly to the 8.4v of a fully charged 2s LiPo. Likewise, many servos will fail quickly at that voltage.
