Chris B.: Is anything I can do to get it to work? And any idea why the motor was working only in one direction?
Chris B.: Hi Graig, I just bought a DX5e and because I am new to the R/C world I don't know to do certain things. So here is my problem, I'm using the DX5e for a little project I'm working on, for that I need a motor to run forward/reverse (I'm using Tazer 15T speed control), but for some reason the motor was running only in one direction. I started playing around with the buttons/switches on the transmitter. I held the training switch up and turned the power on, after that nothing works.
ipadize: There´s Jeti also! :D
randygardener: my tips for dx5e.
the main power switch breaks whilst youre flying! so u have to bypass it later.
it is actually a 6ch tx but its very basic,
and tx antenna snaps easily, mine did.
range is great,i actually reach 600m flying fpv..
HK has better deals though nowdays.
juan de dios paredes: HELLO! Because my control espektrum DX5e DSMX in the back in the specification says (NOT FOR USED IN THE U.S.)
Messyapocalypse: Well done very informative. Brilliant video for someone just learning. I have the dx6i for flying quads but this would do the same job.great video
hokuspokus29: no throttle cut off switch ?
and can batteries be charged with cable ?
Christopher Capra: witch switch is for the collective pitch
nightelfmastr: would this remote work for scale trucks?
Mauricio Cunha: sorry filming this deficiency with lighting are having difficulties seeing the video
TrifcoStudio: Thank you for this great review. You have explained everything one beginner could ask about the DX5e.
RockinRobbins13: Again, the DX5e is just as high quality as the DX6i. The difference is features. The DX6i costs $150 and the DX5e $50 so it is just "a little" more. If you can't afford the difference you won't be sorry you bought the DX5e. My four planes say the DX5e is great and I never waste my time. It's just as I said above, turn on the radio, check servo direction and centering and hit the throttle. If you can't do that in under 30 seconds a DX6i won't save you!
shoegooguru: he has probably lost his planes by now...if he still risks them to a 5e. DX6i or better...if you can't afford it...ask mom for the money.(:
shoegooguru: anybody with three or more planes is NUTS to not have already moved into at least a dx6i. The ten plane memory is SO great and better than wasting time readjusting for every plane. Wow! the 5 sucks anyways and if you take several planes to the field and take flying seriously you won't be using 5e or for long. It is a better radio...costs very little more for it's added stability and functions. 5e is for noobs until you know BETTER. Facts.
shoegooguru: you speak too much and too soon! I fixed the weak battery contact issue very early on. I do do flight checks and all that one is supposed to do. Nothing you responded with has anything to do with the reality of this TX. It was fine and then it started sucking and sucking BAD. the DX6i is much better...and it has some BO probls but nowhere like the 5. And the fixes/helps for are on youtube. I fly an insane amount of time and KNOW my gear/planes. You are all wet on this one.5 is junk.
ronnie burchfield: thanks i just bought one hope it does better than the ones that come with the rtf models.. cause i needed something to learn with
RockinRobbins13: Not terrible. I've been flying mine for a year before and a year after your comment with no problems at all. Any radio with a similar battery tray can have contact problems and it is your responsibility to check that out before takeoff: check servo directions, range check, bump the radio to ensure contact is constant. Skip the basics, crash your plane with ANY radio. I call it a personal problem there.
RockinRobbins13: Yes. It is the receiver that is bound to transmitter, not the other way around. I use my DX5e with a Slow Stick, Vapor, UM T-28 and Radian. All are bound to my radio. I just turn the model on, adjust servo direction and centering and take off. Anybody who tells you that you need a more expensive radio to do that is not telling you the truth. In the bad old days, there WAS no binding and we used a single transmitter for all our planes. The DX5e is better than those old radios.
armatek: Very dark video :)
Matt D: Best review of this rx
ProperSkill: Can the notches be taking out of the left throttle stick?
jordan59961: Thank you, I subscribed + Liked. I really like your videos could you do a video showcasing your airplanes and stuff? thnx
Kodypisani: Wow thanks for informing me :D *FEW*... i nearly brought 1 :/
SketchRC: because the throttle stick on a RC plane transmitter stays where you put it, on an RC car transmitter it goes back to center if you let go, its just a safety feature.
Kodypisani: ohh damn why does it matter? do you know? thanks for informing me :D
SketchRC: nope, thats the DX6i.
SketchRC: only if you want your truck flying into a wall at 40+ mph: i'd buy a surface radio if i were you
Kodypisani: can i use my nitro rc cars with this remote?
forcedejection: Can you bind the transmitter to 2 or more recievers?
Lucho Rodriguez: Sorry but ,YES you can change Mode1 to Mode2 .. inside de radio there is a switch ..
zero00tolerance: Need more lighting please.... thanks for the review. What happened to your hand !?
f3rd1n4nt: Are Servos and motor inluded in the receiver
PHILG2864: Just a few things you didnt mention -
1) that the DX5E is actually a 6 channel radio, channel 6 is on the trainer switch
2) it has the option of exponential, set or cleared by switching on whilst holding aileron trim
3) the mode is easily changed between mode 1 and mode 2 by swapping the ratchet over and flicking the internal mode switch.
You're a bit rough with your radio - the channel-5 and trainer toggles are fairly fragile and will break if mistreated.
Lawrence C: Is there a way to remove the notches on the throttle?
luikeiko: dude, you can switch between mode 1 and 2..theres a 6th switch, left of the other five switches to switch between those modes..just change the spring
SketchRC: yes, yes you can.
saphire1324: can i use this controller to fly a parkzone micro p 51 or the sukhoi m26???
SketchRC: NOPE! you can BUY it as a mode 2, or as a mode 1, but you dont have the ability to actually change between the two until you get into VERY high-end radios, such as the Spektrum DX8, JR 9503, JR 11X, and the JR (whatever their 12 channel radio is called.). sorry to burst your bubble, but you cant/:
SUPERgaming360XBOX: can you change a mode 1 to mode 2?
Michael Moore: can you budy up with a dx4
shoegooguru: it is a TERRIBLE TX! Get rid of it BEFORE it costs you a lost or damage plane. Known for cutting out. vids all over youtube of this flaw. this radio is JUNK. I refuse to use mine again...I won't fly till I can buy a 6i or 7 as apparently they do not have the same issue. if you like your planes....get rid of this radio. Once it begins it just gets worse and worse.
jdrichard01: Great review....thanks
melvin5818: you can only use the buddy system with another dx model not just any transmitter?
Justin Dorman: Thanks for the info
Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
