The receiver produces a pulse train to control servos right?

You can use pulseIn() to measure the pulse and take action accordingly.

if I remember that's not going to work to measure servo impulses because they are about 2 microseconds in length and pulseIn can only measure pulses down to 10 us.

If they're standard R/C pulses, you're three orders of magnitude out - centre pulse length is usually around 1.5milliseconds.
