Can I test AR6100 with just transmitter?

Is it possible to test AR6100 receiver without having anything other than
transmitter? I thought about powering it from a battery and using LED to
see if I'm getting a signal from the transmitter but I'm not sure how to
connect it.

Don't you have a single servo kicking around somewhere?
And if you did have an LED (and a battery, for that matter), wouldn't that qualify as having `something other than the transmitter?'
An LED between the signal and ground pins might light up when it's receiving a signal, and it might even light up brighter when the stick for that channel is all the way one way, and dimmer if it's the other way.
However, it might also light up if there's no signal (I don't know of the AR6100 sends signals to the servos when it's not receiving one or not) and it might not light up at all (I'm not sure what the voltage out is on the signal line.) And it might burn up if the signal line voltage is too high.
Really, a single servo is just the thing for testing RXs. A LED might do something for you, but a servo will tell you a lot more. If you want to get fancy, this works nicely too --

(it can drive a servo, and can tell you what the RX is telling a servo to do) but it's overkill for just seeing if a RX is working.
