If you're a racer, basher or boater who's looking for an affordable radio with a "custom" feel and next-generation capabilities, look no further than the Spektrum™ lineup's new top-of-the-line surface transmitter: the 5-channel DX5 Pro 2021.
Available as transmitter only or matched with an SR2100 DSMR® receiver, the DX5 Pro 2021 delivers the performance and comfort of a pro-class radio at a price that won't break your hobby budget. Its improved ergonomics, connectivity and programmability are ready to take your control to the next level.
The Spektrum™ DX5 Pro 2021 is ready right out-of-the-box to support the innovative connectivity of Spektrum™ Smart Technology. With a Spektrum™ Firma™ Smart ESC and Smart battery in your model, you'll have real-time telemetry data available at your fingertips to keep you aware of every component's status and to boost your confidence in its capabilities. Smart Technology ensures that all of your model's electronics work together seamlessly for the greatest efficiency and performance. It makes your entire system more responsive and simpler to use.
The DX5 Pro 2021 features Spektrum's latest RF module, engineered around DSMR® 2.4GHz technology. This generates a stronger and more robust signal, increases the telemetry range, and creates an extremely reliable connection between the transmitter and receiver. When paired with a receiver capable of 5.5ms frame rates, such as the SR2100, the DX5 Pro 2021 delivers lightning-fast response that gives new meaning to the word "connected".
The ergonomically designed DX5 transmitter has a feel that any driver can appreciate. Its overall low weight minimizes fatigue, while the non-slip rubber grip and trigger-throttle action deliver precise control that feels perfectly natural. To these, the updated DX5 Pro 2021 transmitter adds a new steering wheel mechanism that increases the accuracy and precision of steering motion.
Among the many ergonomic options available for tailoring the DX5 Pro 2021 transmitter to your personal touch are updated trim tabs, designed to make their operation easier while you drive your vehicle.
The DX5 Pro 2021 offers an impressive number of programming features — and they're easy for anyone to use, thanks to the SimpleScroll™ programming interface that makes navigating menus and changing settings as simple as "scroll and click". You can program up to five drive modes per model to help dial in the perfect drag racing and lap times. Drive modes can also be used to program compatible AVC® (Active Vehicle Control™) receivers to match your skill level, driving style, and terrain to provide predictable handling at every speed. There are multiple mixing setups, including Motor-On-Axle (MOA), plus ABS, Traction Control and 4-wheel steering, dual rates, expo and more.
You can select from a variety of vibe alerts for timer alarms, low battery voltage and other telemetry functions. Most of these can be set to go off when the voltage level or telemetry data exceeds specific values that you can easily define in the telemetry menus.
