Just disconnect the red wire between the ESC and the receiver and plug the 4 or 5 cell NiMh/NiCad into any unused channel on the receiver to power the receiver and servos. Do not connect an external battery to the receiver without first disconnecting the red wire between the ESC and the receiver or you risk damaging the ESC. It is fairly easy to remove the red wire from the connector between the ESC and throttle channel of the receiver, just use a small pin to release the little plastic flange that holds the metal end of the red wire into the connector case and pull that red wire out of the housing. If you ever decide to use the ESC to power the receiver again, it will be easy to just plug that red wire back into the housing and be back in business.
