The Spektrum DX5 Pro includes more ergonomic options so that everything you drive can respond more harmoniously. Plus, the DX5 Pro gives bashers, boaters and racers a class-leading list of pro-class features, all at a remarkably affordable price.
Easy to Program: 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.
Built-In Telemetry: 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)
Advanced Programming Features: 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 AVC® receivers
- Spektrum Lap Timer Programming
- Programmable mixes including Motor-On-Axle
- ABS and 4-wheel steering
- Dual rates, expo and more!
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.
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
5.5-Millisecond Frame Rate: When matched with a receiver capable of 5.5ms frame rates, the DX5 Pro delivers lightning-fast response that gives new meaning to the word ‘connected’.

When I first took the DX5Pro out of the box, I hated it. The steering wheel felt really cheap and wobbly. But, I swapped out the large wheel and the 32° cam for the small wheel and the 36° cam. What a difference! Now, it feels great. Not wobbly at all – very stable and precise. I think the 36° cam fits inside of the bearing better than the 32° cam.
All of the adjust ability is great - it really feels good in my hands. The menu screens are easy to work with. Lots of features - more than I'll use. The scroll wheel is a bit twitchy, but nothing I can't get used to.
My favorite thing about the DX5Pro is the speed. It has four frame rate options: 22ms, 16.5ms, 11ms and 5.5ms. With a DSMR receiver, you can bind at 5.5ms (at that speed, you are limited to two channels: steering and throttle). That means the DX5Pro is sending instructions to the receiver 182 times per second!
I think the Spektrum DX5Pro offers a pretty good bang for the buck.
