DX5 Pro 5-Channel DSMR Transmitter with SR2100

The Spektrum DX5 Pro includes more ergonomic options so that everything you drive can respond more harmoniously.


DX5 Pro 5-channel DSMR Radio System

Coming soon from Spektrum is their new DX5 Pro 5-channel DSMR radio system. The transmitter features a new ergonomics package that allows the user to adapt the radio to better suits personal needs while a redesigned steering mechanism eliminates the centre dead zone and an updated throttle trigger with increased throw and resolutions ensures improved throttle and brake control. Included with the transmitter comes the popular drop down steering wheel conversion with 10 degrees and 15 degrees steering adapters, a small steering wheel is includes as are a 36 degrees steering cam option, multiple grip sizes and the radio allows for adjustable trigger and steering tension as well as an adjustable fore/aft and left/right trigger position adaption. Other features include built-in telemetry, advanced programming with additional mixing setups and it also sports pre-programmed Losi vehicle memories for the DBXL-E, Super Baja Ray, 3XL-E, Tenacity SCT, MT and T. The package is rounded out by the recently introduced antenna-less SR2100 receiver.

Sophisticated programming isn't worth much if it's a pain to use. The DX5 Pro’s SimpleScroll programming interface makes navigating menus and changing settings as simple as 'scroll and click'. It's so easy—most users can complete complex programming tasks without ever having to look at the manual.


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 DX5 Pro 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 (sold separately)


The DX5 Pro comes with an impressive list of programming features, some of which include:

  • Up to 5 drive modes per model
  • Programming for compatible AVCฎ receivers
  • Spektrum Lap Timer Programming
  • Programmable mixes including Motor-On-Axle
  • (MOA)
  • ABS and 4-wheel steering
  • Dual rates, expo and more!
  • 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.
  • 250-Model Memory
  • The enormous capacity of the DX5 Pro's on-board memory means you will rarely, if ever, need to juggle models between transmitter memory and your SD card

When we tested the range, it went over 900 feet and still had control -- we couldn't see it any more.

If you want real range, test it FPV in ground vehicle...that way it's out of line of sight.
True test

Fair enough, but keep in mind the this radio was designed for the average RC driver, not with FPV in mind. The guy who responded to you though is the real deal, he is a developer on the Spektrum team. To be fair most of the radio systems you are referring to that achieve more range are either not designed for ground (air radios with two sticks) or they are module systems that require a HAM license, and you usually have to hack together stuff to get a system. There are no "long range FPV Pistol grip radios" that I'm aware of.

The DX5 Pro offers excellent range compared to the other pistol grip type radios on the market, but let's hear your ideas about surface radios for FPV, send them to nmalato! Do you think there is a big demand for an FPV specific pistol grip radio? I'm not sure

Tell your boss to send me one...
If it's crap, I'll let you know and I'll send it back.
There is no use for LOS for me....lol

Old school 72mhz Ground Use is fantastic....
C'mon man...you know that!
(but I know you work for Horizon, so there is sooo
much you can say).

Any 2.4 for ground use is decent for line of sight.
There are $100 RC Tx that can do this
300yards is decent

And you lose 3 channels with the included SR2100? It should come with the SR6000T. What was the reasoning behind that?
