DX6e 6CH System w/ AR610 Receiver

The DX6e gives you more than you ever thought possible from a 6-channel radio under $200. Four model types, 250-model memory, wireless trainer link – you get it all and more. You can even share model setups with users of other Spektrum transmitters.

Being on a budget doesn’t have to mean you have to settle for less than the best. The Spektrum DX6e gives you the unbeatable response of DSMX® technology, the simplicity of Spektrum™ AirWare™ programming software and many other features you can’t find on other “budget” radios.

Airplane, Helicopter, Sailplane and Multirotor Programming
The DX6e comes equipped with the programming you need to fly almost anything. And because it’s based on the same Spektrum AirWare software used in most other Spektrum transmitters, you can share model setups with just about any Spektrum user you meet.

250-Model Memory
The enormous capacity of the DX6e’s on-board memory means you will rarely, if ever, need to juggle models between transmitter memory and your SD card. The model memory menu is easy to navigate too. Only memory slots with model settings saved to them will appear. You won't have to scroll through empty slots or move models around if one is deleted.

Built-In Telemetry
The built-in telemetry feature can give you real-time information on things like battery voltage, signal quality, motor temperature and more.* You can also program alerts that let you know when specific telemetry values reach or exceed limits you define.

*Requires telemetry sensors and a telemetry-enabled receiver.

Wireless Trainer Link
The wireless trainer link gives instructors the option to wirelessly ''buddy box'' with another DSMX/DSM2® transmitter. Once bound to another transmitter, ModelMatch™ technology will allow the DX6e to re-link without having to go through the bind process again.

Patent-Pending Gimbal Design with Spring Configuration Switch
The DX6e’s patent-pending gimbal design lets you change gimbal spring configurations simply by moving a slider switch on the back of the transmitter. No tools are required. Just select the spring configuration that matches the mode you are using and model type you are flying. That’s it.

There are four spring configurations to choose from:

• Normal Throttle for Modes 2 and 4 (Air, Heli and Sailplane Model Types)
• Spring-Centered Throttle for Modes 2 and 4 (Multirotor Model Type)
• Spring-Centered Throttle for Modes 1 and 3 (Multirotor Model Type)
• Normal Throttle for Modes 1 and 3 (Air, Heli and Sailplane Model Types)

The slider switch is protected by a hinged cover that prevents you from accidentally changing spring configurations in flight.

Includes Full-Range AR610 DSMX Receiver
The AR610 combines the speed and precision of DSMX control with the signal security of an active amplified antenna. This antenna enables the receiver to “see around” reflective materials on a model and avoid polarization blind spots. Because it’s amplified, it can pick out its transmitter’s signal with remarkable clarity in noisy 2.4GHz environments. The AR610 also includes a data port for use with Spektrum telemetry modules and the Flight Log signal monitor.
