The Spektrum DX5C 5-Channel DSMR Surface Radio is a great, affordable option for bashers, boaters and scale crawlers who want a staggering list of advanced features combined with the benefits of 5-channel control. Built around DSMR 2.4GHz technology, you can use the DX5C in any type of surface application, including boats. Its range and response are superb, even in noisy 2.4GHz environments. It's also backwards compatible with DSM2 and marine-specific Spektrum receivers. This means longtime Spektrum users can continue to use the receivers they have. They'll only need to upgrade if they need the robust 2.4GHz interference protection a DSMR receiver can deliver.

In Depth Features:

  • Fits the Way You Drive: The Spektrum DX5C has many advanced programming features and comes with advanced-level ergonomics such as an easy-to-read screen, optional dropdown steering wheel and large grip.
  • Intuitive SimpleScroll™ Programming Interface: Sophisticated programming isn't worth much if it's hard to use. The SimpleScroll interface makes navigating menus and changing settings as simple as 'scroll and click.' It's so easy to use, most users can complete complex programming tasks without ever having to look at the manual.
  • Scaling and Trailing: For getting out in the wild, the DX5C is hard to beat. Not only do you get the versatility of 5-channel control for auxiliary systems such as winches, lights, etc., it's also physically lightweight so that there's less fatigue on you during long trips, plus it's easy to transport with all of your rigs.
  • Tone Alarm: Never worry about finding your transmitter battery totally drained again. The built-in tone alarm will alert you whenever the battery voltage is low, or the transmitter is left inactive with the power on.
  • Servo Monitor: See all five channels at work before you even turn the vehicle on. The easy-to-use Servo Monitor system lets you see the channels react to your commands and avoid unintentional interaction.
  • Wheel and Trigger Calibration: The Calibration screen gives you the ability to recalibrate the steering and throttle positions for the ultimate in accuracy.
  • AVC® (Active Vehicle Control™) Programming: The DX5C makes it possible to custom tune the AVC system by providing easy-access to dedicated adjustments. In addition, open channels of the DX5C can be used to adjust the AVC steering and throttle systems independently. No matter what you're driving, AVC technology can easily meet your skill level or driving style with control that makes it feel like you're driving a finely tuned vehicle that handles beautifully at every speed
  • Includes the 6-Channel Spektrum™ SRS6000 AVC® Receiver: No matter what vehicle you drive, if you don't have AVC® (Active Vehicle Control), it's likely that you are not taking advantage of its full potential. AVC technology creates a more enjoyable driving experience by managing the vehicle's driving characteristics and attitude. This translates into more control for you and a more manageable vehicle regardless of the driving environment. By adding the SRS6000 6-channel receiver you get frequency-agile DSMR® technology that delivers superb range and response, plus the boost of AVC technology that makes fine-tuning AVC right from the transmitter easy.

Spektrum RC DX5C 5-Channel DSMR Surface Radio w/SRS6000 Receiver
I don't understand how someone can not like this set up, & so many like this transmitter with a 4 channel receiver, I haven't had any issue with these, yet, however, I still love my DX4S & have absolutely no problem with it, it is DSMR & see no reason why Spektrum felt the need for an upgrade. I buy the 5 channel because the 4 channels are no longer available... dah, when you have a good thing, ya don't change it....

Good transmitter, feels great in your hand. The controls feel cheap but they do their job well. The settings seem confusing at first but after a bit it’s no big deal. With the srs6000, put bind in, wait for it to stop blinking, give control full throttle for 1 second, let go, then give it full reverse for 1 second, let go, turn wheel to the left for one second, let go, turn wheel to the right for 1 second. You should be fully binded.

Spektrum RC DX5C 5-Channel DSMR Surface Radio w/SRS6000 Receiver
I purchased this to upgrade from my DX3S tx,SR310 rx. I worked fine for a couple of runs then the steering began to get glitchy after I plugged in MyTrickRC light system and a winch in the Aux ports with it binded to the SRS6000rx. I was told I needed a BEC because I have a hitek servo. Well I unplugged the lights and winch and the steering servo completely stopped working all together. I even binded the DX5C to the SR310 rx and the steering doesn,t work at all! Now I am waiting from Horizon Hobby for an explanation, but for now I am back to my DX3S tx and SR310 rx with only the winch plugged in and it works great. I would think with a newer system I would happy. All I am now is frustrated and confused.
