DX6i flashes +-+-+-F.MODE-+-+-+

When I turn on my Spektrum DX6i it beeps and flashes the message continuously:


Has anyone else seen this? I looked through the manual and did a google search, but came up with nothing.

That means you are in heli mode, and you have your 3 position switch in stunt/idle up mode while turning the radio on.

Its a precaution for helis so you don't start up your radio causing your heli will immediately spool up to full speed, chopping your fingers off.

He is right. Just flip the fmode switch and you are good. It will also do that for the throttle hold switch. Took me a minute to figure it out on my dx6i too.
