Wheel- The steering wheel comes wrapped with what feels like the same high quality foam that comes on the 4PKS. And as far as raw speed was concerned, the 4PL was plenty quick for all of our testers.

Rubber all the way around the grip would be optimal. Big Squid Rating — 9. That somebody turned out to be me this time, so I drove our test Venom Gambler as far as I could before losing control, then started measuring.

During our testing we treated it like we stole it and had absolutely no problems of any type, so…. So you like a lot of people are in the market for a new transmitter.

The 4PL easily held its against the higher priced units. IMO, for a transmitter to be worthy of being Basher Approved its gotta at least take a drop from pit table height.

I found where people had reported the steering locks had broken on their 4PLs. Summary in Tentacles Time To Bash — 9.

Car Show Rating — 9. Umm… futabw you get video?? If you need more range than feet you are going to need binoculars as well. You can check out our 4PL unboxing pictures if you want a few more. The grip felt slightly too small in diameter for one of our testers, but to others it felt fine. The 4PL actually went further than feet, but quite frankly even seeing the Gambler at feet was quite difficult. Conclusion- The more we tested the 4PL the more we liked it. So off to the message boards I went.


I mean surviving it once could have just been a fluke. The grip has a strip of rubber on the front side to offer your hand added traction. Zero problems, it rocks! Read all about it right here. The Futaba 4PL is easy to use, felt outstanding in hand, suffered no glitching, had ridiculously long range, and drove better than radios costing significantly more than it does. Time To Bash — 9.

Futaba hit a home run with their 4PL. Other than that pop in 4 AA batteries and you are dialed. Trust me on this one. So I grab the 4PL and set it on my pit table…… and knock it off to the concrete floor in my garage, not once, but twice.

So on strict orders from the top I ended up dropping the 4PL a few more times for video purposes. Being the lazy sort that I am I stopped measuring at feet. All in all our test 4PL hit terra firma 10 futava, from heights varying from 3 feet to 6 and a half feet and it works as good today as it did when it came out of the box.

How good of a radio system is it? As with all our stuff, if you see us at a track or bash spot, stop by and say hi! Next… I ran across a thread reporting their 4PL had broken from accidentally being dropped.

Enjoy the video, and if you end up owning a 4PL know its not the end of the world if it ftaba gets bumped off your tailgate. Overall Feel- The 4PL has terrific ergonomics for most peoples hands, and perhaps more importantly, it feels like a high quality unit.


To boil it down, the 4PL felt very natural to drive.

Downsides- Not many with the 4PL- we had one tester complain the trigger was too tight, and another that the grip was too small, but the bulk of our testers loved how the 4PL felt.

If you are a Futaba employee you might want to skip the next section…. After I test out of the radio to be certain it was operating perfectly I give my editor Brian a call. The moment you turned the wheel on the transmitter the tires on your fhtaba were swinging as intended, and the throttle action ffutaba equally responsive. Glitching- We used the Futaba 4PL system for hours upon hours of laps and bashing and there was absolutely no glitching, not even once.

The 4PL is top notch at everything it does, yet sports a very reasonable price point. At the top of your priority list is 2. Maybe you can take a test drive, or at least get some sweet stickers! The 4PKS was slightly more comfortable in hand, and felt slightly more responsive on track, but the 4PL was right there in the hunt.

This is a firm density foam that provides good traction and generally feels like the best on the market. So I grab our test 4PL and started twisting the wheel hard in both directions trying to break the stops.

Gotta give Futaba props on this one. I came 4ll a couple of threads questioning the 4PLs durability.
