One of the most unique features of Spektrum DSM technology is its ability to take advantage of real-time onboard telemetry information. With previous telemetry setups you were required to use a separate handheld telemetry unit to record the data. The newest radio from Spektrum eliminates that need and combines Spektrum’s patent pending 2.4GHz DSM protocol with an integrated telemetry system to create an all-in-one solution. That solution is a reality thanks to the Spektrum DX3S.

The DX3S has taken many design cues from the race-oriented DX3R and for good reason. The DX3S is a very lightweight and ergonomic radio with all the main features at your fingertips. The DX3S also shares the intuitive roller selector for easy one-hand operation. The video below provides you with an interesting overview of this new radio along with a walk-through of the different menu options and layouts.

There are two different versions of the video. One version is the complete video you can watch in one sitting. We have broken the video out into four chapters separated by specific topics as well. Click the menu button on the video player to select either version.
