Your vehicles are extremely durable. Why isn’t your transmitter? The Spektrum™ DX6 Rugged™ 6-channel surface transmitter redefines radio control with a level of durability to match the tough conditions off-roaders, bashers, and boaters encounter constantly. Like its predecessor, the DX5 Rugged, it features superb ergonomics. The result is a class-leading RC system with unmatched durability and other innovative features that unite with precision, versatility, and convenience you won’t want to drive without.

To conquer the wild, the DX6 Rugged gives you 6-channel versatility and hosts an array of auxiliary switches for lights, winches, mixes, and more. Its interface features a new innovative capacitive-touch control panel that offers a greater resistance to moisture and is easy to use. Simply tap to access the control panel and select the menus, options, and values. Additionally, we’ve added a backlight to the easy-to-read LCD display, offering unparalleled brightness and clarity even in the harshest conditions. Integrated telemetry capability** lets you view vital data such as motor RPM, vehicle speed, battery voltage, and temperature on the transmitter in real-time. Plus, the integrated USB-C Port delivers hassle-free firmware updates for uninterrupted functionality.

Molded Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) bumpers surround the radio chassis to protect it against drops, bumps, and scrapes along the way. There’s no external antenna to snag or worry about—a low-profile ridge on the chassis internally protects the robust high-speed signal output. A versatile front chassis guard enhances durability further and provides mounting options for user-integrated accessories such as a camera, light source, or anything else. The pair of lanyard mounting points allows drivers to keep the transmitter close and gain a free hand when not driving. An easy-access accessory compartment makes it possible to carry small tools, such as a T-wrench that easily snaps into the internal mount provided. We increased transmitter water-resistance* to give drivers peace of mind in rainy or wet conditions. Last but not least is an aggressive off-road style steering wheel that expands its ruggedness. It also includes an innovative thumb lever to make controlling your vehicle with one hand safer and more precise.

No matter what you’re driving, you can easily tune the AVC® technology programming on the DX6 Rugged to meet your skill level or driving style with control that makes it feel like you’re at the wheel of a vehicle that handles predictably at every speed.
