The DX7s is equipped with Spektrum AirWare programming that was developed exclusively by Spektrum from the ground up. It has all the functions an airplane or heli pilot could want, but you don't have to be an expert to use them. The intuitive SimpleScroll™ interface makes navigating menus and changing settings as simple as "roll and click".
When programming the cyclic and pitch mixing for a helicopter, it is possible for the sum of the two mixing values to exceed the mechanical travel limits of the servos. This can cause them to be overdriven into a locked position. Spektrum AirWare's Electronic E-Ring prevents this by automatically limiting servo travel if the sum of the cyclic and pitch values exceeds servo limits.
When selecting a wing type for an airplane, Spektrum AirWare graphically depicts the type you've chosen and will automatically configure the necessary mixes for the pilot. This saves time and reduces the chances for error when programming complex control surface configurations.
The DX7s's built-in telemetry feature gives you vital, real-time information about what's happening with your model in flight; information that can prevent crashes and maximize performance. The telemetry data appears in an easy-to-read format on the large LCD screen so you can reference it at a glance. You can also have the DX7s alert you with an audio or vibe alarm whenever any telemetry values exceed limits you define. The DX7s will initially be able to track four key safety and performance factors:
The DX7s is equipped with a built-in telemetry feature that gives you real-time information on things like your model's battery voltage, signal quality, engine or motor temperature, airspeed, altitude and more. And it all appears right on the big LCD screen so you can see it at a glance. Just connect a Spektrum Air Telemetry Module (sold separately) to a compatible DSM2™ or DSMX™ receiver and bind it to your DX7s.
Is there enough airflow reaching an electric motor? Is my battery getting too hot? With the DX7s, you will get real-time answers and be able to take action well before damage occurs.
The telemetry module will keep tabs on the quality of the signal coming to the receiver and send this information back to the DX7s where it is represented on the LCD screen using a familiar "signal bar" scale.
Pilots can use the RPM telemetry data to check the effectiveness of new mixture settings, new battery packs, or perhaps a new propeller/motor combination. The RPM sensor is sold separately.
Beyond new software and telemetry, the DX7s is also the first Spektrum radio to introduce the Spektrum Data Interface™. The SDI is designed for use with standard SD memory cards and adds a whole new level of flexibility and ease-of-use. With the SDI, you will be able to:
Share setups with other DX7s owners at the field or transfer them from your SD card to your PC and attach them to an e-mail. This makes it easy to gain from the experience of others or help others succeed.
The DX7s has enough on-board memory for up to 20 models before you even need to think about using the SDI. But with the SDI, memory for thousands of models could be stored on the SD card or transferred to a PC hard drive for backup.
With the Spektrum Data Interface, you won't have to send your DX7s into a service center to get the latest Spektrum AirWare enhancements. You can download them onto your SD card and upload them to the DX7s yourself.
The weight distribution and ergonomics of the DX7s provides a sense of balance and comfort that perfectly complements the speed and precision of its DSMX™ technology. You simply have to feel it to believe it.
Some of the more impressive ergonomic features include:
The DX7s transmitter is not compatible with the Spektrum AR6000/BR6000 receiver.
