Function List
Rates
Rates (dual rate) allow you to make on-the-fly travel adjustments to Steering, Throttle or Brakes using any of
the Programmable trimmers. The Rate screen also offers an override function, which allows you to access a
second rate (normally 100%) at the touch of a button or trimmer. This is especially helpful for oval racers that
program minimal steering throw to desensitize steering during racing, but requires maximum steering angle to
drive out of a crash or get turned around on the track.
To adjust Rate values:
1.
Scroll to Steering and click the scroll wheel to select between Steering, Throttle or Brake. Click the wheel
to save the selection.
2.
Scroll Up or Down to adjust the Rate value. Click the scroll wheel to save the selection.
3.
Select a Rate switch.
4.
Select an Override rate and switch.
5.
Select the OTF trimmer that will be used to adjust Rates on the fly.
IMPORTANT: In order for the Override to operate, you must assign it to a switch or trimmer. The default
position for this function is inhibited.
Exponential
The Exponential (Expo) function affects the response rate of the steering, throttle and/or brake. A positive
Steering Expo value, for example, decreases steering sensitivity around neutral to make it easier to drive at
high speeds in a straight line while still allowing for maximum turning radius. While sensitivity with positive
Expo is decreased around neutral, it increases the sensitivity near the end of travel.
To adjust Expo values:
1.
Select Throttle or Steering.
2.
Scroll Up or Down to adjust the Rate value. The graph shows the Expo Curve.
3.
Click the scroll wheel to save the selection.
4.
Select an OTF switch to activate Exponential.
If Switch ON is selected, the Expo value will always be on for that function. If another switch is selected, the
Expo can be turned ON/OFF or 2-3 different Expo values can be entered depending on the switch used.
IMPORTANT: Both positive and negative Expo values are available. A positive Expo value results in the
center being less sensitive (desirable most of the time), while a negative value increases the sensitivity
around center (normally not used).
Timer
The DX5R Timer function allows you to program a countdown timer and stop watch (count up timer) to display
on the main screen. An alarm sounds when the programmed time is reached. You can program the timer
to start using the assigned switch position or automatically when throttle moves above a pre programmed
position.
Two internal timers are available that show run time for a specific model displayed on the Main Screen. and a
total system timer.

Function List
Frame Rate:
For compatibility with all types of servos, four frame rates are available:
•
5.5ms: Gives the fastest response rate. Digital Servos and a compatible receiver are required.
IMPORTANT: When 5.5ms frame rate is selected, only two channels (steering and throttle) are operational.
•
•
•
11ms: Offers good response rates and is compatible with most digital and analog servos (this is the
default position). Works with DSMR surface receivers.
16.5ms: Needed for older analog servos. Works with DSM2® surface receivers.
22ms: Needed for older analog servos. Works with DSMR® receivers.
IMPORTANT: You should always use the fastest response rate the servos can handle. This gives the lowest
latency and fastest response. If the frame rate is incompatible with the servo, the servo will move erratically
or, in some cases, not at all. If this occurs, change the frame rate to the next highest value.
IMPORTANT: Always rebind after changing the Frame Rate.
Binding/Frame rate
Binding is the Process of teaching the receiver the specific transmitter’s code called GUID (Globally Unique
Identifier) and storing failsafe values. When a receiver is bound to a transmitter/model memory, the receiver will
only respond to that specific transmitter/model memory.
Bind the Transmitter to the Receiver
1. Place the receiver into Bind mode, the LED on the receiver will begin to flash.
2. Power on the transmitter.
3. Select the Model Memory you wish to bind to.
4. Select Bind from the List menu.
5. Move the throttle channel to the desired failsafe position.
IMPORTANT: The throttle channel must stay in the failsafe position until binding is complete.
6. Scroll to Bind and click the scroll wheel. The orange LED flashes on top of the transmitter.
7. When the bind process is complete, the transmitter and receiver LEDs stop flashing and turn solid orange.
8. Remove the bind plug from the receiver and keep it in a convenient place.
NOTICE: Always remove the bind plug from the receiver when the bind Process is complete. Failure to do so
will cause the receiver to enter bind mode the next time you power on the receiver.
Failsafe
The throttle failsafe position is set during binding. In the unlikely event that the radio link is lost during use, the receiver will drive the
throttle servo to its pre-Programmed failsafe position (normally full brakes) and all other channels will have no servo output. If the
receiver is turned on prior to turning on the transmitter, the receiver will enter the failsafe mode, driving the throttle servo to its preset
failsafe position. When the transmitter is turned on, normal control is resumed.
IMPORTANT: Failsafe activates only in the event that signal is lost from the transmitter. Failsafe will NOT activate in the event that
receiver battery power decreases below the recommended minimums or power to the receiver is lost.

• THR Gain
• Priority
To activate AVC:
•
Assign a switch to toggle AVC ON/OFF or select ON.
STR Gain and/or THR Gain Sensitivity
The default value is 50%. As the value increases, the AVC steering stability and throttle management increases.
A value of 0% is off.
1.
Adjust the STR Gain until you reach the ideal amount of steering control. If the front wheels begin to
shake, the STR Gain value is too high. Reduce the STR Gain value until the front wheels stop shaking. You
can assign STR Gain and THR Gain to the Switch, enabling you to adjust both values at the same time.
2.
On The Fly Switch (OTF): Assigning STR Gain and THR Gain to a switch enables you to adjust the
sensitivity without using the AVC menu.
Steering Priority
As the steering angle command is increased, the steering gain is decreased. With 100% priority at full steering
travel, the steering gain is turned off to allow maximum steering control. This allows full steering stability in a
straight line, plus full steering control at full lock with varying degrees of stability proportionally based on the
steering angle. Priority is used to adjust the maximum steering rate. If the vehicle spins out, reduce the Priority.
If the vehicle won’t turn in aggressively as desired, increase the Priority.
