Features

A simple and secure 5-channel radio.

While the DX5e transmitter is one of the best values in RC, it is anything but a stripped down transmitter. In fact, it boasts many features you simply won't find on most transmitters in its price range. Things like a Hi/Lo control rate switch, an extra function switch and available Delta wing mixing.

And because it's a full-range 2.4GHz transmitter, you can use the DX5e with everything from ultra micro helis and airplanes to bigger scale trainers and sport planes. It's a great way to try out the exciting world of Bind-N-Fly aircraft, too. It's 5-channels and extra functions will allow you to fly just about all of them.
