Were the "other" batteries you tried of a rechargeable type?

If so, were they charged? Also, you might find that the battery box on th DX6i is a bit ropey with rechargable cells. The positive contacts on the cells don't project out as much as dry/alkaline cells, and don't make such a good contact with the terminals in the battery box.

Worth a look....

+1 to that - I would also properly charge up the Spektrum sent batterys before you send it back just to check! they wont mind waiting a day or so for a return!
