Our RC models are extremely durable, why not the transmitter? So Horizon Hobby decided to introduce the SpektrumTM DX5 Rugged: a 5-channel surface transmitter redefines radio control with a level of durability to match the tough conditions crawlers, bashers and boaters encounter constantly during their RC “adventures”.
The chassis is based on the classic Spektrum ergonomic design found on the popular DX5C and competition favorite DX5 Pro. From there, designers integrated cordless power tool feature ideas for the diehard punishment those products endure.
The result is an RC system with unmatched durability in addition to other innovative features that unite with a level of precision, versatility and convenience you won’t want to play without.
Integrated telemetry and Smart telemetry capability ( telemetry-enabled receiver like the SR6100AT, SR215, SR315 or SR515 are sold separately) allows you to view vital data such as motor RPM, vehicle speed, battery voltage and temperature right on the transmitter in real-time.
Additionally, the DX5 Rugged Green edition features an upgraded panel from previous releases, with an improved feel, control, and system operation.
