The Spektrum brand is on track to be the world wide leader of Spread Spectrum RC equipment. They provide innovative, creative technology for the R/C industry that through ease of use and reliability helps people to have fun with hobbies. In the surface market, Spektrum is the most reputable provider of the full spectrum of products, from basic RTR systems to the professional level. In the air market, they produce systems and accessories for the 7 channel and under markets, while providing RF technology solutions to their market partner, JR, for advanced and professional flyers using 8 channels and above.
Air Systems - Fly What You Want, When You Want
There is a very simple reason you see more Spektrum DSM radios at the flying field than any other spread spectrum system - most popular being the Spektrum DX7 and the newer released DX6i. In addition to pioneering and perfection 2.4GHz spread spectrum technology for RC, only Spektrum makes it truly accessible. Whether you fly tiny micro heli's or large scale 3D airplanes, Spektrum has a system for you. With Spektrum, just about any modeler can enjoy freedom from model generated RF noise, conflicts with other RC users, and spill-over from commercial broadcast towers. You do not even have to worry about other 2.4GHz users. You can just concentrate on the one thing that hooked you on the hobby to begin with - flying.
DSM - The Best Choice For Aircraft Control
Digital Spectrum Modulation, or DSM, is the 2.4GHz RC technology that was pioneered by Spektrum. With DSM, you do not have to worry about waiting for an open channel, other transmitters operating on your frequency, interference from noisy motors, ESC's, or other model-generated RF interference. If is even immune to interference from other 2.4GHz sources like wireless routers and cordless phones. And if you're into flying larger-scale aircraft at greater distances, Spektrum's DuaLink intuitiveness is a must. Pair all this with a top of the line DSM Receiver, monitor and enhance operations with Flight Log tools, and you are setup for bulletproof, noise-free flight.
Surface Systems - Connected
It is the one word used more than any other when RC racers describe the kind of responsiveness they experience with Spektrum - connected. The reason is DSM, Spektrum's patented direct sequence spread spectrum technology that has been proven where it matters most - on the driver's stand. And ever since Spektrum introduced the world's first 2.4GHz racing system, including both transmitters and receivers, tens of thousands of racers have used DSM to win at every level of competition, from backyard grudge matches to the Roar Nationals. Plus, Spektrum DSM Technology is available in more applications than any other, so whether you are racing with a high-end 3 channel programmable system or simply looking for an inexpensive way to upgrade your ready-to run with a DSM System, Spektrum has what you need to get connected.
Spektrum Radio Systems are designed not only for ease of use and strength of signal, but also reliable, consistent control that you can count on. Consistency can make all the difference, especially in competition. That is why Spektrum's DSM2 surface systems are engineered to have the most consistent latency and lowest response variance of any radio system.
Most radio systems establish a limit for the maximum response time or latency between your control input and the reaction of the vehicle. While these limits ensure that you will be in control of your vehicle, they also allow for the response time to vary across a broad range. This means that while taking a corner, your control input may have a short delay that causes a sharp and possibly sharper than expected turn. Or, the delay may be longer causing you to shoot too high into a turn and lose valuable lap time.
Spektrum systems not only offer faster response time, giving immediate reaction to your input, but you also have the most consistently narrow latency range. The narrow variance in the latency of the system ensures your input will happen exactly when you expect it keeping you in control and letting you hit your mark every time.
