The Spektrum DX5C 5-Channel DSMR Surface Radio is a great, affordable option for bashers, boaters and scale crawlers who want a staggering list of advanced features combined with the benefits of 5-channel control. Built around DSMR 2.4GHz technology, you can use the DX5C in any type of surface application, including boats. Its range and response are superb, even in noisy 2.4GHz environments. It's also backwards compatible with DSM2 and marine-specific Spektrum receivers. This means longtime Spektrum users can continue to use the receivers they have. They'll only need to upgrade if they need the robust 2.4GHz interference protection a DSMR receiver can deliver.

In Depth Features:

  • Fits the Way You Drive: The Spektrum DX5C has many advanced programming features and comes with advanced-level ergonomics such as an easy-to-read screen, optional dropdown steering wheel and large grip.
  • Intuitive SimpleScroll™ Programming Interface: Sophisticated programming isn't worth much if it's hard to use. The SimpleScroll 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.
  • Scaling and Trailing: For getting out in the wild, the DX5C is hard to beat. Not only do you get the versatility of 5-channel control for auxiliary systems such as winches, lights, etc., it's also physically lightweight so that there's less fatigue on you during long trips, plus it's easy to transport with all of your rigs.
  • Tone Alarm: Never worry about finding your transmitter battery totally drained again. The built-in tone alarm will alert you whenever the battery voltage is low, or the transmitter is left inactive with the power on.
  • Servo Monitor: See all five channels at work before you even turn the vehicle on. The easy-to-use Servo Monitor system lets you see the channels react to your commands and avoid unintentional interaction.
  • Wheel and Trigger Calibration: The Calibration screen gives you the ability to recalibrate the steering and throttle positions for the ultimate in accuracy.
  • AVC® (Active Vehicle Control™) Programming: The DX5C makes it possible to custom tune the AVC system by providing easy-access to dedicated adjustments. In addition, open channels of the DX5C can be used to adjust the AVC steering and throttle systems independently. No matter what you're driving, AVC technology can easily meet your skill level or driving style with control that makes it feel like you're driving a finely tuned vehicle that handles beautifully at every speed
  • Includes the Spektrum™ SR415, 4-Channel Receiver : The SR415 4-channel sport receiver can handle the worst nature and the RF environment can throw at it. It's built around frequency-agile DSMR® technology boasted for its superb range and response, especially in places where a lot of 2.4GHz systems are in use at once. Its fuel-proof case features waterproof† Reliakote™ protection that seals internal electronics from the elements and other corrosives like nitro methane and motor spray.

Spektrum RC DX5C 5-Channel DSMR Surface Radio w/SR415 Receiver
First I contacted spektrum as I can’t find any additional info or parts available for drop down. Spektrum said they initially were going to offer drop down parts, but after production decided not to...... bummer, as all the descriptions still advertise drop down option...... maybe in the future...... or maybe they thought that would hurt the dx5r sales. Anyway, spektrum is always the clunkiest looking (except for dx4r) but I got to hand it to them, they always feel good in my hand, from the low end to the high end. Functions were easy to learn, I changed all my frame rates to 11ms, that’s the lowest it will go with dsmr receivers. I give it 5 stars, as I already knew it didn’t have drop down option, and everything functions as it should. But they should change the description because someone is going to buy it thinking there’s a drop down, and they’re not going to be happy.

Spektrum RC DX5C 5-Channel DSMR Surface Radio w/SR415 Receiver
I have had this transmitter for a couple months now. I have both the sr415 receiver and the srs6000 receiver. One is in my rock crawler and the other is in my 1/8 truggy. So far this transmitter has worked out just great for me. I don't normally post reviews but since this transmitter has received such bad reviews I wanted to share my experience. The on/off button was starting to stick on mine but I cleaned it out with a pick and no problems since. I use this transmitter around 5 to 6 nights a week on average for a hour at a time so it has seen a lot of use. Still going strong. Battery life is pretty good too. For the money it has great features. I would definitely buy another.

Had the transmitter 6 days, now the trigger doesn't register it's position, causing the car to go on the fritz, stuck in full reverse. If I tap on the side of the transmitter, it comes to a stop, then goes full reverse again. Will not calibrate.

I have had this radio for exactly one month. Power button got stuck in the "On" position during a big race weekend. I was able to pull it out with a razor but it still gets stuck every time I use it. I have had Futaba radios my whole life with zero issues. I should have known this deal was to good to be true! Stay away from this radio unless you are looking for a nice paper weight.
