Fantastic Spektrum DX5C Radio To Analyze, and Produce No Limits

2 min read

I purchased a Spektrum DX5C radio in 2021 for my Losi 5ive-T. When I purchased it I knew nothing about how it worked and I still don’t. I’ve never used the radio if you can believe that. If you are wondering, I still haven’t used the Losi 5ive-T either.

I’m going to use the radio for the cars that I’ll be using for RC Carpet Racing. I spent some time reading the manual and it seems to be a pretty capable radio. The one that I purchased I believe it was a return or refurbished. It has an SR6100AT receiver but I won’t be using it. In both cars, I’ll be going with the SR2100 since they don’t have antennas.

My only complaint so far is that I wish they would make the manual easier to read. I’m not an engineer so I don’t want it to read so dry and detailed. Just tell me how to run the system easily and straight to the point, but that’s just me being judgy I guess.

What I’m truly excited about is the ability to have the radio programmed to multiple cars. I’ll be running this radio on both the RC10B74.1, RC10B6.2, and with my Losi 5ive-T.

I didn’t capture the price of this radio in my budget spreadsheet because I don’t remember how much it cost. It was a purchase that I got off eBay so it was definitely cheaper than a new one. It’s been sitting on a shelf since November 2021 so I hope everything works.


I have a love for all things toy car-related whether it's Lamborghini toy cars, Corvette C8 toy cars, or big car toys for adults. My specialty is looking for the best deals in the right places.

Vintage toy cars are something that fascinates me. What makes old toy cars worth money? The desire to have the car that you dreamed about as a kid. Having the income to purchase the car now that you've found, imagining the joy that it will bring.

I also love to do home automation in my spare time for fun. I love to consult on all things computers but mostly for family. Technology has always been a passion of mine so I've always studied information systems. I have over 20 years of experience in this function and love it because it's challenging but also rewarding.
