Optional Speedometer

What if you don’t need the full capabilities of the Spektrum Dashboard app? Maybe you just simply want to know how fast you can go. There is the optional DX2E ACTIVE Speedometer just for that! Installation and setup is a breeze. Once installed, the system will use motor RPM to calculate your speed and send it to a bright, easy-to-read LED display that attaches to the transmitter.

Speeds can be displayed in MPH or KPH and will allow you to instantly see the effects of chassis tuning or motor and battery changes. Of course, you can also use the speedometer to prove once and for all, you’re every bit as fast as your buddies are.

What’s Required To Use The Speedometer:

Spektrum TM1500 Telemetry Module (SPM6742) OR

Spektrum Telemetry-Enabled DSMR Receiver (SPMSR4000T) or (SPMSR6000T)

Spektrum RPM Sensor (SPMA9560)

These bundles include all the necessary components to upgrade the Losi TENACITY SCT and MT and Spektrum DX2E Active to utilize the Spektrum Dashboard App or Optional speedometer. Take the guesswork out of this exciting upgrade and save money and time at the same time!
I have been using this speedometer on my Tenacity MT for about two months now, and I love it. The speedometer is attached to the top of the transmitter, which makes it easy to view while running the vehicle. Check out my video below.

The optional speedometer module is a great and inexpensive way to monitor how fast your RC can go. Very simple to install and once set up, the speedometer is automatically power on by the transmitter. This means, there is no special process to use the speedometer. Simply install and perform the one-time setup and you are done. Now every time you power up your transmitter, the speedometer will be powered up as well. Turn on the transmitter and vehicle as you normally do and go have fun.

  1. That is cool Spektrum has giving two options for the telemetry setup. This way folks can choose what setup they want or need. I know it is always a good idea to go with the whole system but, i would like to just watch my speed. I always find myself tring to judge how fast my rc is going.

    1. Hi Chuck,
      It is a good idea to opt for the complete system because if you are bashing, you really want to keep an eye on the temps of your electronics, motor, esc, etc. The speedometer only option however, is fine to use if that is all you want. You can always use a temp gun to check your temps.
