Spektrum RC DX5 Rugged 5-Channel DSMR Transmitter w/SR6200A
Nice radio, the receiver is a pain to figure out how to disable the gyro. I’m not impressed with the software on the surface radio, I have a 6 channel DX6 and that software is way more intuitive. Maybe I just need more time with it. Not a fan of the touch panel for adjustments, I would prefer a scrolling wheel. It’s a nice radio though and I would recommend it but there are probably better options out there.

Bar none the worst radio I have ever owned. I have owned mine since 2019 and I barely touch it because it is such a PITA to program. The touch panel is pure agony. My DX4S still works with a bit of a jittery throttle pot, but it is so much easier to use the DX5R sits on the shelf. I was attracted by the "Rugged" aspect of it but that turned out to be gimmick. Opened ticket with Horizon. Amazingly they have not heard of any issues with the touch screen. Weird, I must be crazy. (followed by a product announcement and even a revision to the radio) So I did not return it just thinking I had hotdog fingers or something. Nope. I bought a smart phone stylus hoping to have an easier time using it. Nope, the interface still hangs, mis clicks, double and tripple clicks on it own. It is the most infuriating radio I have ever experienced. I gave it 2 stars because I love the ergonomics of it and as a Youtuber I like the wheel that you can operate with one hand, but that is literally its only positive attribute. Today I took it off of the shelf and planned to struggle through programming it on my brand new scale truck. Now not only is it impossible to navigate it loses aux assignments and makes a horrible beeping noise when I pull on the throttle trigger. Unbelieveable. I could send it back to try and get its many flaws addressed (at my cost) or a could put it on Youtube and smash it with a hammer. I may do the latter.

Dear Amain hobby
Regarding Order# 6923210

When my order was deliver, i opened all the boxes and looked to see if i got all that i have ordered.
Everything was there. I am building a JPS All aluminum custom Clodbuster that I've had for over 10 years.
I am now finished and I am putting all my electronics together and my transmitter is used not brand new like I expected.
