Introducing the new Spektrum DX5R 2.4GHz RC Radio System! The DX5R gives bashers, boaters and racers an impressive list of pro-class features including a 250 model memory, 5.5 millisecond frame rate, programmable vibration alerts, built in telemetry, DSMR and DSM2 compatibility, ABS and 4-wheel steering capabilities, up to 5 driving modes per model, and much more. The Spektrum DX5R is expected to hit your hobby shop’s shelves this April. Check out the pictures and the rest of the specs below.
Superb Ergonomics Inspired by the DX6R
Optimized weight distribution and all kinds of adjustments make it easy to thoroughly adapt the DX5R’s ergonomics to your driving style. The sense of balance and comfort they provide perfectly complements the precision of DSMR technology. Ergonomic features include adjustable trigger and steering tension, adjustable trigger position, multiple wheel drop-down options, 3 grip sizes available, 10˚ and 15˚ steering adapters available, small steering wheel available, 36˚ steering cam available, and smooth, dual-ball bearing precision.
Intuitive SimpleScroll Progamming Interface
Sophisticated programming isn’t worth much if it’s a pain to use. The DX5R’s SimpleScroll programming interface makes navigating menus and changing settings as simple as ‘scroll and click’. It’s so easy to use, most users can complete complex programming tasks without ever having to look at the manual.
Advanced Programming Features
The DX5R comes with an impressive list of programming features, some of which include up to 5 drive modes per model, programming for compatible AVC receivers, programmable mixes, ABS and 4-wheel steering, dual rates and expo.
The built-in telemetry feature can give you real-time information on things like your vehicle’s battery voltage, signal quality, motor temperature and more. Using the vibe alert system, you can program the DX5R to notify you when specific telemetry values reach or exceed limits you define.
Frequency-Agile DSMR Technology
The DX5R is built around frequency-agile, DSMR 2.4GHz technology. This exclusive Spektrum technology can be used in any type of surface application, including boats. Its range and response, particularly in noisy 2.4GHz environments, are superb. It’s also backwards compatible with DSM2 and marine-specific Spektrum receivers. This means most longtime Spektrum users can continue to use the receivers they have. They’ll only need to upgrade if they want the frequency-agility of a DSMR receiver for busy 2.4GHz environments.
5.5-Millisecond Frame Rate
When matched with a receiver capable of 5.5ms frame rates, the DX5R delivers lightning-fast response that gives new meaning to the word ‘connected’.
The enormous capacity of the DX5R’s on-board memory means you will rarely, if ever, need to juggle models between transmitter memory and your SD card.
Includes SR6000T Telemetry Receiver
You can take advantage of all five channels and available telemetry functions with the included SR6000T. It comes equipped with a built-in telemetry module as well as data ports for voltage, temperature and RPM sensors. An XBus connection for additional sensors is also available.
Programmable Vibe Alerts
You can select from a variety of vibe alerts for battery voltage and telemetry functions. Most of these can be set to go off when the voltage level or telemetry data exceeds specific values that you define.
