DX6I... Timer starts on own? (Newbie with 2 hour old radio)
I'm new to RC. I bought a Spektrum DX6i on Amazon.com from Horizon Hobby it same in today I put fresh batteries and and wanted to learn about it. .
I had the radio on while I'm reading the manual... I set up a "test plane" with a timer to 6 minutes.... but I didn't start it...I sat the DSX6i next to me on the desk as read the manual about 10 minutes later it beeps a few times and the timers starts with me even touching the transmitter at all.... Beep and then it counts down??? I didn't touch anything. I just turned on the radio and left it sit.
This happens... I don't have a plane to test the transmitter on. Has anyone heard of the timer starting on it's own?
Update more specific: I turned on the radio and set a stop watch on my iphone after 16 minutes....
Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep
Timer runs (counting down from 6) for 2 seconds to 5:58
Time now shows 6:00
beep, beep, beep, beep, beeeeeeeeeep for about 50 seconds *(then I got tired of it and turned it off!)

A call to Spektrum/HH support said the newer radios have a built in timer if it's left on for a while with no input it will start beeping to remind you to turn it off to save batteries. So I assume that is what is going on. He rep said it's around 15-20 minutes of just sitting that triggers the beeping.
