Help!
Tekin rx8 problem need help please

I just installed my tekin rx8 paired with a tekin 1900kv motor, I have it binded with a flysky gt3c and I keep getting these flashing lights. Just for experiment I hooked up an old Hpi 2.4g tx/rx and I no longer have these flashing lights, I don't know if this is normal but from what I read it is interference between esc and rx. I don't know if this problem is causing range issues but at about 50 yards I no longer have control please help I have included a video link below thanks in advance guys

Does it still happen if you use a receiver battery pack instead of the BEC in the ESC? Can you adjust the BEC voltage on the RX8?

Just heard back from tekin they said:
It is normal when using the Flysky radio. That radio system
channel hops. When his occurs we see it and flash our "no
signal" fault. It will cause no issues running the system.

It's not causing any problems except all 7 LEDs occasionally flash the reason I was loosing reception was the 1s lipo in the tx was at 3.7 charged it up and the car will go until I can't see it
