Meet the new Android powered Spektrum DX6R 6 channel RC radio system! Basher, racer, it doesn’t matter. The DX6R is a no compromise smart radio that has everything expert drivers could want and a few things they’ll wonder how they ever lived without. Best of all, you don’t have to be an expert to use it. You literally tap into the DX6R’s programming features using its Android powered touch-screen interface. The big color display makes navigating menus and adjusting settings as easy as it gets.
When connected to WiFi, the DX6R gets even smarter. You can instantly make firmware and RaceWare updates, download model setups from other users and add approved third-party apps. The DX6R will even be able to alert you when new updates or setups become available.
If you’re out driving with another DX6R owner, you can quickly and easily swap model setups via Bluetooth. No WiFi or SD card transfer necessary. Just link up and swap.
This exclusive Spektrum technology makes it possible to link with specially-equipped Spektrum FPV headsets so you can wirelessly control head tracking or remotely change video frequencies.
The DX6R 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.
Optimized weight distribution and an abundance of adjustable features make it easy to customize the DX6R’s ergonomics to your driving style. You will enjoy a sense of balance and comfort that perfectly complements the precision of DSMR technology, especially during long racing heats.
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 voice alert system, you can program the Spektrum DX6R to tell you when specific telemetry values reach or exceed limits you define. You can also have it call out a sequence of telemetry values on demand with the flip of a switch.
250 Model Memory
The enormous capacity of the Spektrum DX6R’s on-board memory means you will rarely, if ever, need to juggle models between transmitter memory and your SD card.
You can take advantage of all six channels and telemetry functions with the included SR6000T. A tiny SR2000 Race Receiver capable of a 5.5-millisecond frame rate is also included.
Keep tabs on important information without ever taking your eyes off what you’re driving. With the programmable voice alert system, you can have the DX6R call out lap times or report telemetry information. If an alarm goes off, you won’t have to look at the display to see what’s happening. The DX6R will tell you. In addition to a built-in speaker, the Spektrum DX6R has a headphone jack that allows you to monitor voice alerts using earbuds so you don’t bother other drivers.
You don’t have to remove the battery or plug in the transmitter when it comes time to recharge. The DX6R includes a handy charging base that doubles as a transmitter holder. Its compact footprint won’t clutter up your pit station or workbench either.
