Overview

Your vehicles are extremely durable, why not your transmitter? The Spektrumā„¢ DX5 Ruggedā„¢ 5-channel surface transmitter redefines radio control with a level of durability to match the tough conditions off-roaders, bashers and boaters encounter constantly. We started with a chassis based on the superb Spektrum ergonomic design found on the popular DX5C and competition favorite DX5 Pro. From there, we integrated cordless power tool feature ideas for the die-hard punishment those products endure. The result is a class-leading RC system with unmatched durability in addition to other innovative features that unite with a level of precision, versatility and convenience you wonā€™t want to play without.

Molded Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) bumpers surround the radio chassis to protect it against drops, bumps and even a few bangs here and there. Thereā€™s no external antenna to snag or worry aboutā€”a low-profile ridge on the chassis protects the robust high-speed signal output internally. A versatile front chassis guard enhances durability further and provides mounting options for user-integrated accessories such as a camera, light source or anything else. The pair of lanyard mounting points gives drivers the ability to keep the transmitter close and gain a free hand when not driving. An easy-access accessory compartment makes it possible to can carry small tools, such as a T-wrench that smartly snaps into the internal mount provided. We increased transmitter water-resistance to give drivers peace of mind should there be an unexpected splash of water or some drops of rain. Last, but not least, is an aggressive off-road style steering wheel that expands its ruggedness even further, AND equipped it with an innovative thumb-lever to make controlling your vehicle with one-hand safer and more precise.

To conquer the wild, the DX5 Rugged gives you 5-channel versatility and hosts an array of auxiliary switches for lights, winches and more. Its interface features an innovative capacitive-touch control panel that offers a greater resistance to moisture and is easy to use. Simply slide your finger over the control panel and tap to select the menus, options and values on the easy-to-read LCD display. Integrated telemetry capability** allows you to view vital data such as motor RPM, vehicle speed, battery voltage and temperature right on the transmitter in real-time.

No matter what you're driving, the AVCĀ® technology programming capability in the DX5 Rugged can be easily tuned meet your skill level or driving style with control that makes it feel like you're at the wheel of a vehicle that handles predictably at every speed.

Unmatched Durability

Starting with a chassis based on a superb Spektrum ergonomic design, we were inspired by the punishment capability of cordless power tools, and translated their die-hard engineering to the specific needs of the RC driver. The result is a shock-absorbing rubberized bumper design that surrounds the transmitter chassis to form a level of protection never offered before on a surface transmitter.

Side 1

Aggressive Styling

The DX5 Rugged stands out as a transmitter platform that means business handling the wildest terrain, the toughest conditions and fierce competition without any worry. Thatā€™s why we designed durability hand-n-hand with convenience. A built-in side compartment offers tool storage, and two lanyard mounts (one rubber, one molded into the chassis) are supplied so you can be hands-free in an instant.

Side 2

Inspired Ergonomics

The ergonomically-recognized DX5 Pro and DX5C transmitters paved the way in giving the DX5 Ruggedā„¢ a feel any driver could appreciate. Overall low weight offers all-day driving with minimal fatigue, while the non-slip rubber grip and its trigger-throttle action offer a precision experience that feels natural.Ā 

Side 3

Versatile Chassis Guard

We built-in a front chassis guard to increase durability further and make it possible for users to creatively self-integrate personal accessories and/or features such as a camera or light sourceā€”the sturdy guard itself and its mounting points are at your disposal.

Side 4

Breakthrough Steering Control

The aggressive off-road steering wheel tread helps the precision of Spektrum technology to also deliver a tactile feel even if youā€™re crawling, bashing or boating in harsh conditions. The integrated thumb-lever innovatively makes it possible to steer one-handed safely and with a higher-level of precision.

Side 5

Capacitive Interface

Toward the matter of improving water-resistance the scroll wheel and buttons were exchanged for a capacitive-touch sensing control panel that responds to the simple touch of your finger. Sensitivity of the panel can be adjusted and a large LCD display helps make navigating the intuitive software easy.

Side 6

Easy to Program

Programming the DX5 Rugged is simple. An intuitive interface makes navigating menus and changing settings easy. Most users can complete complex programming tasks on the fly.

Side 7

Built-In Telemetry

The built-in telemetry capability can give you real-time information on things like your vehicle's battery voltage, signal quality, motor temperature and more.** Using the audio-tone alert system, you can program the DX5 Rugged to notify you when specific telemetry values reach or exceed limits you define.

5-Channel Receiver Included

Built around frequency-agile DSMRĀ® technology the Spektrumā„¢ SR515 5-channel receiver included delivers superb range and response, especially in places where a lot of 2.4GHz systems are in use at one time. Unbeatable signal security in a small modern package makes this sport receiver a top-pick for bashers, boaters, racers and rock crawlers. Plus, we integrated a versatile bind-button so that no bind plug ever needs to be on-hand.

Side 9

Frequency-Agile DSMRĀ® Technology

The DX5 Rugged is built around frequency-agile, DSMR 2.4GHz technology. This exclusive Spektrumā„¢ 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 DSM2Ā® and marine-specific Spektrum receivers. This means most longtime Spektrum users can continue to use the receivers they have. Theyā€™ll only need to upgrade if they want the frequency-agility of a DSMR receiver for busy 2.4GHz environments.

Side 10

AVCĀ® (Active Vehicle Controlā„¢) Programming

The DX5 Rugged makes it possible to custom tune an AVC system by providing easy-access to dedicated adjustments. In addition, open channels of the Rugged can be used to adjust the AVC steering and throttle systems independently. No matter what youā€™re driving, AVC technology can easily meet your skill level or driving style with control that makes it feel like youā€™re driving a finely tuned vehicle that handles predictably at every speed.Ā
