The Spektrum™ DXe combines the versatility of a programmable transmitter with the simplicity of a basic sport radio to give cost-conscious pilots a better choice when it comes to flying on a budget. Instead of having to reconfigure a bank of servo-reversing and wing-type switches every time you want to fly a different model, the DXe lets you instantly change those settings using a mobile device or PC.

Point and Click Programming*
If you’ve ever managed a music library on your PC or smart phone, you can program the DXe. All you need is the free software and a Spektrum programming cable (sold separately). Using this interface you can create and save basic model setups with different settings for:

• Servo Reversing
• Stick Configuration: Mode 1-4
• Wing Type: Normal or Delta/Elevon
• Expo: On or Off

Once saved to your PC or mobile device, you can upload the setup for a specific model to the DXe with a simple point and click. You can also use the interface to upload pre-programmed setups for Bind-N-Fly® aircraft.

The Spektrum programming app is available at Google Play and iTunes app stores. The PC software can be downloaded from

*NOTE: The Spektrum Programming App has not been released, so to perform programming functions, you must have a PC with Windows OS.

More than Meets the Eye
While the DXe looks and functions like a basic 6-channel transmitter out of the box, it gives pilots the control functions they need to fly a wide variety of Bind-N-Fly aircraft using pre-programmed setups. Functions include:
• Four Control Surface Channels
• 3-Position Flap Switch
• 2-Position Auxiliary Function Switch
• 3-Position Flight Mode Switch for AS3X/SAFE-Equipped Aircraft

Spektrum RC DXe 6-Channel Full Range DSMX Transmitter (Transmitter Only)
this is a great transmitter for beginners. But if you want to fly a wing or something more advanced like that you have to buy a 30 dollar cable to program it.

Spektrum RC DXe 6-Channel Full Range DSMX Transmitter (Transmitter Only)
If you plan on programming this transmitter you must purchase both the usb and bluetooth cables. Your brand new controller will come to you with outdated firmware and can only be updated with the 20$ usb to pc cable. After you update the firmware your usb cable will no longer be compatible and all programming must be done with the bluetooth cable (another 20$) this is done now through a mobile app. Again this app will not work with your dxe until firmware is updated. You cannot update the firmware with the bluetooth cable connection. I encourage anyone looking into this transmitter to look up the dxe app and read the reviews. Really more frustrating than it should be. I purchased the dxe with the bluetooth cable with the reasonable assumption that a bluetooth bind should allow me to preform any computer related updates/programming as it is advertised to now be stuck with another required purchase to operate... knowing this ahead of time would have affected my purchase.

Spektrum RC DXe 6-Channel Full Range DSMX Transmitter (Transmitter Only)
Very short range - under 1,000 feet. I bought this transmitter to control my Radian XL motorized glider. I previously used a Spektrum DX5e that controlled the glider as high as I could see it, one time over 3,000 feet. But the power switch on the DX5e wore out and was causing the transmissions to stop. So, I bought the DXe off the shelf from the local HobbyTown. Unfortunately, before I got the glider up to 1,000 feet, it disconnected from the transmitter until the plane glided down a bit and reconnected. I took it back to HobbyTown and exchanged it for another, thinking that the unit might be bad. The replacement was just the same, got to about 1,100 feet when it disconnected so returned it for a refund and gave up on the DXe. Fortunately, I've found a brand new DX5e on eBay that I hope to get to do as well as my old DX5e did. I didn't give the DXe just one star because it seemed to work well up to its very short maximum range so may do well for anyone flying closer than 1,000 feet (which most probably do. I just like to go for altitude with my glider).

Spektrum RC DXe 6-Channel Full Range DSMX Transmitter (Transmitter Only)
Like some of the other reviews say, you will need an additional cable or 2. I am extremely frustrated that the programming cable is sold separately (I am aware it says this on the product page and I did notice it before buying). I would have much rather spent my money on a more expensive transmitter than deal with the barely usable phone app and PC program. Spektrum should be ashamed of this product. An engineering student fresh out of college could design a better, more user friendly, product and they would have the decency to up the price a bit and just include the necessary cables to make this product usable. Love Flite Test, hate this transmitter. I may return it soon if I don't gut it for another unrelated project.

Spektrum RC DXe 6-Channel Full Range DSMX Transmitter (Transmitter Only)
This has caused me so much inconvenience and anger just trying to get my ft22 programmed. 1. you need to buy the cord to program it separately. 2. The spektrum app is horrible. I still cant get my f22 programmed and ive followed the instructions, googled it, tried reprogramming it, rebinding it, and it just won't work.

Spektrum RC DXe 6-Channel Full Range DSMX Transmitter (Transmitter Only)
It's a great radio for the money and does it's job for the average sport pilot. Range is good and the stick movements are smooth.
