ICE 50 Throttle failsafe with Spektrum receiver

I have an ICE 50 that I'm using with a Spektrum 9000 receiver with fixed endpoints. I'm separately powering the receiver and have disconnected the red wire from the BEC on the controller. Everything works great when I power the transmitter & receiver and then plug the motor battery in. Often times I will plug the motor battery in before turning the radio on and I want to make sure that if I leave the transmitter on full throttle(accidently of course) that the motor will not go to full throttle when I turn the radio on. Well this one does!! All my other CC controllers require that I go back to low throttle before it will arm. This ICE 50 will arm as soon as I plug the motor battery in even with the radio off. If I power the radio first, then plug in the motor battery, the controller will not arm until I return the throttle to the low position.

Is this normal?? Do I need to add an arming plug and/or just make sure I never plug the motor battery in without turning the radio on first?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
