An obscure question about RC airplane motors

I have some brushless DC motors, and I want to run them on a bench rather than in an airplane. I have the ESCs that go with them, but I don't have recievers. Does anybody know what kind of signal the reciever sends to the speed controller to make the motor turn?

Thanks in advance.

you might try just connecting a battery pack directly to the motor, but im not sure that will work, i don't know that much about brushless motors.

Bad idea. Might kill the motor. The Electronic Speed CONTROL is there for a good reason.

Hooking the batteries directly to the motor is not going to work. I found a bench testing setup that will work anyway.

So by that logic just connecting a regular brushed motor to a battery might kill it...riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight...
