When you’re looking to upgrade your RC gear, one area that shouldn’t be overlooked is the radio system. While adding motor and on-vehicle performance upgrades is nice, being able to customize the electronics that make driving your vehicle is just as crucial. With a wide array of radio options on the market currently, you’d think that just about every stone had been turned over, regarding features. Spektrum’s latest surface vehicle transmitter is about to prove that idea wrong.
The new DX6R boasts a whopping 6-channels of control, an Android-powered touch screen, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity for firmware updates, app access, model data transfer, FPV headset linking, and more. To top all of that off, or perhaps this is the meat in the entire sandwich, you can program settings for up to 250 individual vehicles in this one remote. While I don’t have nearly that many vehicles in my collection, I know some folks that have…close to that. I can only imagine that the ability to run them all off of one transmitter would be very appealing.
Add to that on-board telemetry, you’ll always be in the know with what your vehicle is doing and how it is performing. Ideal for any surface-vehicle from cars and trucks to boats and more, this is a tech-filled upgrade that won’t leave you wanting.
Outside of its technological achievements, the DX6R has a number of ergonomic features that allow you to customize the fit and feel to match your driving style and personal preference. To give you an idea of what this transmitter can do to enable the most-comfortable feel, you can adjust the trigger tension and position, steering wheel angle, left-hand/right-hand wheel placement, and more.
