Your lorries are very durable, why not your transmitter? The Spektrum™ DX5 Rugged™ 5-channel surface transmitter redefines radio control with a level of toughness to match the tough conditions off-roaders, bashers and boaters encounter continuously.

From there, we incorporated cordless power tool feature ideas for the die-hard punishment those items withstand. The outcome is a class-leading RC system with unmatched toughness in addition to other ingenious functions that join with a level of accuracy, versatility and convenience you won'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. There's no external antenna to snag or stress over—a low-profile ridge on the chassis safeguards the robust high-speed signal output internally. A flexible front chassis guard enhances toughness more and supplies mounting choices for user-integrated accessories such as an electronic camera, light or anything else. The pair of lanyard mounting points gives motorists the ability to keep the transmitter close and acquire a freedom when not driving. An easy-access accessory compartment makes it possible to can carry small tools, such as a T-wrench that wisely snaps into the internal install supplied. We increased transmitter water-resistance to give motorists comfort ought to there be an unforeseen splash of water or some drops of rain. Last, but not least, is an aggressive off-road style guiding wheel that broadens its ruggedness even further, AND equipped it with an ingenious thumb-lever to make managing your car with one-hand safer and more precise.
To dominate the wild, the DX5 Rugged gives you 5-channel versatility and hosts a range of auxiliary switches for lights, winches and more. Its user interface features an ingenious capacitive-touch control panel that uses a higher resistance to moisture and is easy to use. Just slide your finger over the control panel and tap to choose the menus, choices and worths on the easy-to-read LCD display. Integrated telemetry and Smart telemetry capability** allows you to view essential data such as motor RPM, car speed, battery voltage and temperature right on the transmitter in real-time.

 Great upgrade from RTR equipment
By Wes B on March 3, 2020   Verified Purchase

It will take some getting familiar with because I am used to the basic TXs that come with RTR rigs. But so far love it and the customization options you have. Plus the ability to use it with all of my 1/10 rigs is huge.
