It is ideal for scale modelers who like to push realism to the extreme with working accessories and lights in addition to the regular control functions.

The DX10t automatically updates the available switch options in your programming menus whenever a different module is installed.

Marine L2 + R2

The combination of an L2 switch module with an R2 switch module is particularly useful in marine applications requiring with multiple functions.


Truck L2 + R4

Spektrum Data Interface. Share. Expand. Save.

Beyond new software and telemetry, the DX10t gives you the benefit of the Spektrum Data Interface. The SDI is designed for use with standard SD memory cards and adds a whole new level of flexibility and ease-of-use. With the SDI, you will be able to:

Share Model Setups

Share setups with other DX10t owners at the field or transfer them from your SD card to your computer and attach them to an e-mail. This makes it easy to gain from the experience of others or help others succeed.

Save More Models to Memory

The DX10t has enough on-board memory for up to 50 models before you even need to think about using the SDI. But with the SDI, memory for thousands of models could be stored on the SD card or transferred to a PC hard drive for backup.

Stay Up to Date

With the Spektrum Data Interface, you won't have to send your DX10t into a service center to get the latest Spektrum™ AirWare™ enhancements. You can download them onto your SD card and upload them to the DX10t yourself.

Superior Ergonomics. Made to Fit the Way You Fly.

Spektrum knows that all the capabilities in the world aren't much good if they're a pain to use. That's why the DX10t was designed from the outset to be the most comfortable tray radio you will ever use.

The SD card will also allow for data writing, so information gathered during use will be stored on the card, allowing for an in-depth look at model performance. The DX10t includes the high-speed AR10000 10-channel receiver and a 2500mAh LiPo battery for extended field use.

Attention Owners of the Spektrum DX10t Transmitter (SPM2800US/SPM2800)

It has come to our attention that a small number of DX10t transmitter antennas were crumpled during the installation of the antenna cover at the factory. This can cause poor radiation patterns from the transmitter, which in turn may affect signal range. While the number of affected transmitters is very low, we believe the risks of flying with a crimped antenna are significant enough to warrant inspection of all DX10t transmitter antennas.

This bulletin outlines the procedure DX10t transmitter owners should use to inspect the condition of their antenna and, if necessary, take corrective action. If it is needed, Horizon Hobby will provide antenna tubing free of charge.

To see if a transmitter is affected, DX10t owners can open the right-hand side door on the front of the transmitter to check the PID number. Affected PID numbers are: xx202B, xx203B, xx204B, xx205B, xx206B, xx207B, xx208B, xx209B, xx210B, xx211B, xx212B, xx301B, and xx302B.

NOTICE: Transmitters with Product ID numbers (PIDs) ending in HA, LH, ON or CM have been checked before shipment and are not included in this product bulletin.

Antenna Tube Installation Instructions

  • Pull the antenna cover from the antenna base to expose the antenna wire. Carefully straighten the antenna, being careful not to disconnect the antenna from the RF module.

  • Cut and install a section of 31mm long antenna tube (SPM6824 can be used for the tubing and is available upon request by contacting the appropriate office or distributor listed below) onto the antenna.


  • Reinstall the antenna cover onto the antenna base using care to prevent bending the antenna wire at the base during installation.
