This is the Spektrum DX6 6 Channel DSMX Transmitter. The DX6 has been designed from the ground up to deliver way more than you would ever expect from a 6-channel transmitter in its price range. Instead of having to content yourself with a handful of settings for a couple of model types, the remarkably affordable DX6 gives you an abundance of programming features for airplanes, helicopters and sailplanes. You also get other extras like voice alerts, a wireless trainer link and enough internal memory for up to 250 models.

  • PROGRAMMABLE VOICE ALERTS: With voice alerts, the DX6 will allow you to keep tabs on important functions without ever taking your eyes off what you’re flying. They can be programmed to call out what flight mode you’ve chosen or report telemetry information on demand. If an alarm goes off, you won’t have to look at the transmitter display to see what’s happening. The DX6 will tell you.
  • WIRELESS TRAINER LINK: The wireless trainer link gives instructors the option to wirelessly "buddy box" with another DSM2®/DSMX® transmitter. Once bound to another transmitter, ModelMatch™ technology will allow the DX6 to re-link without having to go through the bind process again.
  • AIRPLANE, HELICOPTER AND SAILPLANE PROGRAMMING: In addition to its extensive airplane and heli programming, the DX6 includes an impressive list of programming features for sailplanes as well. Five available flight modes, 4 wing types, 3 tail types, a flap-to-elevator curve mix – it has all this and more. The intuitive SimpleScroll™ programming interface makes all of these functions incredibly easy to access and use.
  • 250 MODEL MEMORY: The enormous capacity of the DX6's on-board memory means you will rarely, if ever, need to juggle models between transmitter memory and your SD card. The model memory menu is easier to navigate too. Only memory slots with model settings saved to them will appear. You won't have to scroll through empty slots or move models around if one is deleted.
  • FLY SMARTER WITH BUILT-IN TELEMETRY: The DX6 is equipped with a built-in telemetry feature that gives you real-time information on things like your model's battery voltage, signal quality, engine or motor temperature, airspeed, altitude and more. Using the voice alert system, you can program the DX6 to tell you when specific telemetry values reach or exceed limits you define. You can also have it call out a sequence of telemetry values on demand with the flip of a switch. If you want to review telemetry after a flight, the DX6 can be set up to record the data to its SD card.

Spektrum RC DX6 6-Channel Full Range DSMX Radio System (Transmitter Only) (Mode 2)
Bought a DX6 (TX only) for my son. I am a DX9 user so navigation was a breeze. If looking for a 6 channel radio then this is a no brainer. There are a few things that make this cheep to buy. One, they don't include a neck strap or a SD card with it. Two, the packaging is very cheep compared to other transmitters I have bought. It comes with 4 AA battery's and is not re-chargeable. I picked up the Li-Ion battery for mine. Spectrum is going to release a battery and charger combo soon. Over all I'd say even with the things you don't get, for the price its a great deal.

Spektrum RC DX6 6-Channel Full Range DSMX Radio System (Transmitter Only) (Mode 2)
Nice Overall Radio. I purchased this radio for Acro Quadcopter use and is performing nicely. The ergos are nice. Molded inlay rubber like grip is spot on and the anodized orange trimmings are a nice touch.

It does munch batteries, so be aware. It gives you a ten second notice, (literally) before TX batteries go bad, so NEVER let them get too low. I almost had a fly away. I use ENELOOP 1900 mah AA NiMH rechargables and they are excellent. Last 3x longer than any other AA equivalent out there. Two sets of 4 should run you $20. 4 Stars. 5 would include a neck strap, better battery life and a simple case to protect your investment.
