Sounds like you may be having a "brown-out" condition happening to the receiver from the power it gets from the ESC. Sometimes the ESC and motor can demand so much power all at once from the battery that it causes the power being fed to the receiver to drop causing the "brown-out". Does this happen when driving the vehicle around at low speeds on a smooth level surface? Have you tried different LiPo batteries or just one? Is there a capacitor bank on the ESC? Is there a separate capacitor plugged into the receiver?
