Video Overview




The Spektrum DX5 Pro 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 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 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 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 transmitter to your personal touch are updated trim tabs, designed to make their operation easier while you drive your vehicle.




The DX5 Pro 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.




Built around frequency-agile DSMR® technology, the SR2100 — updated for Smart telemetry compatibility — consistently delivers superb range and a lightning-fast 5.5ms frame rate, even where many 2.4GHz systems are in use at once. It has an incredibly small footprint with an internal antenna that eliminates the need for external antenna tube support, so it mounts easily on most chassis.



Launch Control Mode for Drag Racing

Available with Raceware firmware V2.02 or higher, the Launch Control menu is specifically geared towards perfecting your Drag Race times and speed runs. This option allows the driver to control the duration of time it takes to reach full throttle as well as adjusting points in the throttles curve to effectively ramp the throttle to the user’s preference. Essentially controlling the throttle output so that the driver can focus on steering their model straight to the podium.
