Intuitive SimpleScroll™ Progamming Interface
Sophisticated programming isn't worth much if it's a pain to use. The DX5R’s SimpleScroll programming 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.
Advanced Programming Features
The DX5R comes with an impressive list of programming features, some of which include:
- Up to 5 drive modes per model
- Programming for compatible AVC® receivers
- Programmable mixes
- ABS and 4-wheel steering
- Dual rates and expo
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 vibe alert system, you can program the DX5R to notify you when specific telemetry values reach or exceed limits you define.
*Vehicle must be equipped with a telemetry-enabled receiver like the SR6000T that is sold separately.
Frequency-Agile DSMR® Technology
The DX5R 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® 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.†
5.5-Millisecond Frame Rate
When matched with a receiver capable of 5.5ms frame rates, the DX5R delivers lightning-fast response that gives new meaning to the word ‘connected’.
The enormous capacity of the DX5R’s on-board memory means you will rarely, if ever, need to juggle models between transmitter memory and your SD card.
Programmable Vibe Alerts
You can select from a variety of vibe alerts for battery voltage and telemetry functions. Most of these can be set to go off when the voltage level or telemetry data exceeds specific values that you define.
