That sounds exactly like the receiver is going into "fail safe" mode... IF the voltage drops (even for a nano-second) below a minimum value, the receiver will drop into failsafe, with the throttle and steering locking at the values set when the receiver was bound... This is actually a fairly common problem with fast brushless motors -- they pull a lot of amps, causing the voltage to drop hard. The best "fix" is to get either the add-on capacitor from Spektrum or the Novak "glitch buster" capacitor and plug that into the receiver. The big capacitor smooths out the voltage blips and allows the receiver to maintain normal operation....
