Deltang DSM2/DSMX Low Voltage Micro Receivers for Land-Based Use
The 'v5' receivers are UK designed and manufactured DSM2/DSMX ultra micro 2.4GHz receivers for low voltage (up to 6V) land based applications: cars, boats, and trains. All are compatible with Spektrum DSM2 and DSMX Air modulation. All have a combination of ESC and servo switch outputs which may be programmed to suit your need. Either a stick type transmitter or PROG3 may be used for configuring the receiver settings.
In the receiver descriptions below:
F outputs can supply up to 2A but the H outputs are lower current. The current capacity of a H output can be boosted and 2 x F outputs can be combined to make an additional H output using one of the add-on amplifier boards: ADD1 for 0.8A and ADD2 for 3A.
The MAG3 magnetic connector board is ideal for making low weight, low force electrical connections.
More information about the DT 'v5' receivers is available on this page. See Spektrum Transmitters for compatible transmitters. Take a look at the Rx6x range of receivers for high voltage (up to 16V).
Rx41d-v5 is a DSM2/DSMX compatible micro receiver with one 500mA
H-bridge reversible ESC output (H), 2 x 2A non-reversible ESC outputs (F) and 3 x servo/switch outputs (P). The H output can be boosted to 0.8A or 3A and the 2 F outputs may be converted to a H. The P outputs may be used to drive servos or used as low current (8mA) switches, e.g for LEDs.
The receiver is available as a bare board with 1.27mm pad space and as a wired version. The latter has lead-out wires installed for battery and motor (H output) and has heat-shrink covering for protection. Please contact us if you need lead-out wires attaching to the F or P outputs.
The Rx41d-v5 receiver is available in 4 configurations to suit the model usage and type of transmitter:

Rx43d-x-v5 are a set of DSM2/DSMX compatible micro receivers with a combination of H-bridge reversible ESC (H), non-reversible ESC (F) and servo/switch outputs (P). The same PCB and components are used for all variations and the number type of outputs is determined by the loaded firmware.
Rx43d-4-v5 is supplied with ADD1 which must be used for the 4th H output to supply 0.8A. Without the ADD1 connected, the 4th H output can provide only 8mA. Other receivers in the Rx43d-x-v5 range (1, 2 & 3) are not supplied with an ADD1 - ADD1 or ADD2 may be additionally purchased to either increase the current rating of an existing H channel or to convert 2 x F channels into an H channel.

Rx45-v5 is a DSM2/DSMX compatible ultra micro receiver with one 500mA H-bridge reversible ESC output (H), 2 x 2A non-reversible ESC outputs (F) and 3 x servo/switch outputs (P). The H output can be boosted to 0.8A or 3A and the 2 F outputs may be converted to a H. The P outputs may be used to drive servos or used as low current (8mA) switches, e.g for LEDs.
View the Rx45-Car, Rx45-22, Rx45 programming instructions. The Rx45-2 setup is the same as Rx45-22 except that Selecta is disabled. Other configurations are available to special order, enquire for details.
Rx45-2 is the same as Rx45-22 but with Selecta disabled.
Receiver Variant and Wiring Options:
Rx47 is a DSM2/DMSX compatible ultra micro receiver with 2 x 800mA H-bridge reversible ESC outputs (H), 2 x 2A non-reversible ESC outputs (F) and 14 x servo/switch outputs (P). The H outputs can be combined to supply 1.6A or mixed for differential steering.
ADD1 is a 4.4mm x 9mm, 0.06gm add-on board for 'v5' receivers to boost H outputs to 0.8A or combine 2 x F outputs to make an additional H output.
Download the ADD1/ADD2 information. Contact us if you need ADD1 wiring to a DT receiver.
ADD2 is a 6.3mm x 12.5mm, 0.11gm add-on board for 'v5' receivers to boost H outputs to 3A or combine 2 x F outputs to make an additional H output. The supply voltage can be up to 10V, allowing use of a 2S LiPo - in this case, the receiver must be supplied separately as it has a max working voltage of 6V.
Download the ADD1/ADD2 information. Contact us if you need ADD2 wiring to a DT receiver.
MAG3 is a pair of 9.5mm sq boards with 3 x 2mm magnets soldered on each.
The magnets have good 'holding' strength and act as low weight, low force electrical connectors.
Use as servo connector, on/off/charge mechanism, train coupling, etc. (priced for a pair of boards).
PROG3 is used to change settings in Rx4x 'v5' (from v5.10) and Rx6x (from v6.10) receivers. Changes are made on PROG3 and sent through to the Rx with the push of a button.
All Rx6x receivers can be programmed using a standard DSM2 transmitter - i.e. one with control sticks. The PROG3 is only required for programming if you don't have a standard TX.
Receivers with firmware version at v6.10 and up can be programmed using this programmer. Instructions for using PROG3 are located here.
All current stock has firmware with support for PROG3. Rx6x receivers with firmware older than V6.10 require PROG1 - please contact us if you have a Rx6x receiver with older firmware. If you are unsure of your receiver's firmware version, take a look at the smaller IC package on the circuit board; it will be marked with the 3 version digits - e.g. "6 0 3" for version v6.0.3.
Prog4 is a programmer for DT land-based receivers (Rx4x-v5 and Rx6x). It is used with a computer to change program settings.
Prog4 creates a wireless link between the computer and the receiver. A low-cost serial cable (not included) and freeware file transfer software (not included) are required.
Refer to this page for information on using PROG4.
A German modeller, Claus Peter, has developed a Windows GUI program for interfacing with PROG4. Receiver functions may be configured using menu selections and check boxes. The app is free and can be downloaded from Claus's blog.
Suitable PL-2303 USB adapter cables are available from many suppliers. Be aware that many of these do not contain genuine Prolific PL-2303 chips and may result in driver warnings / errors, especially on Windows 10.
