Fly on screen with a real transmitter.
More than advanced graphics will make your flying experience realistic. So will the included DX5e 2.4GHz DSM® transmitter. It’s the same one thousands of RC enthusiasts use every day. And you can fly all of the simulator’s virtual aircraft with it right on your screen. Best of all, it’s completely risk-free—you’ll learn to fly without fear of damaging real RC aircraft.
Take to the skies.
Once you’ve mastered flying on screen, you can use your DX5e to fly the real aircraft you’ve been practicing with. And you can do it all with state of-the-art technology. The DX5e’s advanced 2.4GHz DSM technology lets you fly without interference and frequency conflicts from other RC pilots.
Endless possibilities when you Bind-N-Fly.
The fully functional DX5e is compatible with many planes and helicopters, including all the Bind-N-Fly® aircraft like the Blade® mCX or ParkZone P-51D Mustang. With Bind-N-Fly, you just pick a plane, bind it to your DX5e (or any other Spektrum transmitter) and fly. For more information on Bind-N-Fly, visit www.bindnfly.com.
