Default Servo Freaks Out

I have had my 8ight-T for about a week now and ran it into a wall. Lucky it only cost $35. It seems that the battery pack started to die out and the servos started moving on their own. The throttle went full open and I couldn't stop it. When I got it back home I confirmed what had happened. When the battery pack was installed the servos were moving on their own. When I put the AA battery pack in the problem was gone.

Is this usual of a dying battery pack or is my servos?

Weak batteries cause the Rx to drop out sooner than the servos USUALLY. The Rx was putting out no drive signal or sporadic "junk" info to the servos. Battery problem in other words or to be more precise YOUR problem for not keeping a better eye on the batteries.
