Product Information

Spektrum DX5 Rugged

A strong, durable transmitter

The vehicles you bash are super durable, so why not have a durable transmitter also? The Spektrum DX5 Rugged 5 channel surface transmitter redefines durability in the R/C radio game, the harsh tough conditions that you operate your R/C in, will not bother the DX5 Rugged! Basing the chassis on the proven and comfortable design of the DX5C and DX5 Pro, Spektrum’s team of engineers then ideas taken from cordless power tools simply due to the abuse that those tools can handle and incorporated it into the DX5 Rugged’s design. The net result is a super durable radio system with the precision and control that is synonymous with the Spektrum name.

Moulded Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) bumpers surround the radio’s chassis to stop any damage occurring during bumps and even dropping the system on the ground. Externally there is no antenna to get caught or damaged and a low profile ridge on the Chassis protects the lightning-fast output from damage. An ultra-versatile front chassis guard increases durability even further and doubles as a mounting position for extra accessories like a camera or torch.

DX5 Surface TransmitterWater resistant

The DX5 Rugged also boasts multiple lanyard mounting positions to give the driver ultimate flexibility when setting up the feel of the radio and making sure it’s hanging in the right position. Another neat accessory is the factory fitted accessory compartment that will hold some small tools and snaps onto the mounting position provided. Spektrum have amazingly added water resistance to the DX5 Rugged, giving operators the piece of mind to know that a splash of water or some rain will not damage your radio system. Finally the aggressively designed steering wheel further’ s the rugged nature of this beast, whilst also providing an innovative thumb lever to make one-handed driving a possibility!

No matter what R/C you’re operating the AVC technology that the DX5C Rugged utilizes can be set to suit your driving style, the control AVC offers you will make you feel like a pro at any skill level.
