It's radio interference. That's what you get with FM/AM radios.

More so with AM than FM. I assume you calibrated the radio to your ESC? Otherwise sounds like a receiver issue.

Grab a Towers Hobbies 2.4 GHZ radio. http://www.towerhobbies.com/products/towj0224.html
I have one, great price and you can add RX's for other cars.
