Spektrum S6240RX High Speed Digital Servo/Reciever

Spektrum S6240RX High Speed Digital Servo/Reciever

There have been a number of unique, electronic component mashups within the R/C world over the years. Tech such as, the Vortex dDrive from Team Orion and ARRMA’s “diff brain”-equipped vehicles has made for interesting conversation and Intrigue throughout the hobby. In the spirit of pushing innovation further, Spektrum has released details around a new steering servo that includes a built-in, 2-channel radio receiver, the S6240RX.

Given the size of receiver components, seeing this particular item mated with another piece of radio-controlled electronics isn’t that big of a stretch. That said, including any additional electronic elements inside of a steering servo is quite a feat.

The S6240RX manages to keep both its weight and size in check, making it suitable for an array of vehicles from Kyosho, Team Losi Racing (TLR) and Team Associated.

By combining components, you not only save on space and weight underneath the hood of your R/C machine, but you can also save a little money as well.
