The Spektrum DX5 Rugged 5-Channel DSMR Surface Radio redefines transmitter control with a level of durability to match the tough conditions off-roaders, bashers and boaters encounter constantly. Starting with a chassis based on the superb Spektrum ergonomic design found on the popular DX5C and competition favorite DX5 Pro. By integrating cordless power tool protection features, the DX5 can endure similar punishment. The result is a class-leading RC system with unmatched durability in addition to other innovative features that unite with a level of precision, versatility and convenience you won’t want to play without.

Molded Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) bumpers surround the radio chassis to protect it against drops, bumps and even a few bangs here and there. There’s no external antenna to snag or worry about—a low-profile ridge on the chassis protects the robust high-speed signal output internally. A versatile front chassis guard enhances durability further and provides mounting options for user-integrated accessories such as a camera, light source or anything else. The pair of lanyard mounting points gives drivers the ability to keep the transmitter close and gain a free hand when not driving. An easy-access accessory compartment makes it possible to can carry small tools, such as a T-wrench that smartly snaps into the internal mount provided. Transmitter water-resistance has been increased to give drivers peace of mind should there be an unexpected splash of water or some drops of rain. Last, but not least, is an aggressive off-road style steering wheel that expands its ruggedness even further, AND equipped it with an innovative thumb-lever to make controlling your vehicle with one-hand safer and more precise.

To conquer the wild, the DX5 Rugged gives you 5-channel versatility and hosts an array of auxiliary switches for lights, winches and more. Its interface features an innovative capacitive-touch control panel that offers a greater resistance to moisture and is easy to use. Simply slide your finger over the control panel and tap to select the menus, options and values on the easy-to-read LCD display. Integrated telemetry capability allows you to view vital data such as motor RPM, vehicle speed, battery voltage and temperature right on the transmitter in real-time (Vehicle must be equipped with a telemetry-enabled receiver like the SR6000T - sold separately).

No matter what you're driving, the AVC technology programming capability in the DX5 Rugged can be easily tuned meet your skill level or driving style with control that makes it feel like you're at the wheel of a vehicle that handles predictably at every speed.

Spektrum RC DX5 Rugged 5-Channel DSMR Surface Radio (Orange) (Transmitter Only)
Very cool looking radio, comfortable in the hand. The menu scroll bar takes getting used to, I wish they didn’t try and get so fancy and just went with a regular scroll button. And get a better screen with backlighting!

Spektrum RC DX5 Rugged 5-Channel DSMR Surface Radio (Orange) (Transmitter Only)
Really liking this transmitter. Functionality and ease of use is great for getting out and RCing. The orange pops too on the transmitter. Definitely rugged, awesome grip. Smart functions of transmitter are great, pretty easy to use. Fairly straight forward operation. The only downside is no backlight. Hasn’t been an issue for me. Whether I’m bashing these RC’s programed to The Spektrum DX5 or thrashing them this transmitter for the money gets the job done and then some.

Nice improvements over the last model. I like the protection they’ve added, and the select control roller is gone, changed to touch pad.

It took me a total of 20min to complete my crawler settings and was on the trail having fun. I love the durability. Very happy with my purchase.
