Overall Feel- The 4PL has terrific ergonomics for most peoples hands, and perhaps more importantly, it feels like a high quality unit. The 4PL easily held its against the higher priced units.

So I grab our test 4PL and started twisting the wheel hard in both directions trying to break the stops. And as far as raw speed was concerned, the 4PL was plenty quick for all of our testers.

Enjoy the video, and if you end up owning a 4PL know its not the end of the world if it accidentally gets futaa off your tailgate. Futaba hit a home run with their 4PL. I found where people had reported the steering locks had broken on fuaba 4PLs.

At the top futaa your priority list is 2. 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. Time To Bash — 9. Conclusion- The futaga we tested the 4PL the more we liked it.


So on strict orders from the top I ended up dropping the 4PL a few more times for video purposes.

Futaba 4PL

The 4PKS was slightly more comfortable in hand, and felt slightly more responsive on track, but the 4PL was right there in the hunt. The grip has a strip of rubber on the front side to offer your hand added traction.

Big Squid Rating — 9. Car Show Rating — 9. Rubber all the way around the grip would be optimal. 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 4ol loved how the 4PL felt.

Next… I ran across a thread reporting their 4PL had broken from accidentally being dropped. Being the lazy sort that I am I stopped measuring at feet. So you like a lot of people are in the market for a new transmitter. This is a firm density foam that provides good traction and generally feels like the best on the market.

Umm… did you get video?? If you are a Futaba employee you might want to skip the next section…. The Futaba 4PL is easy to use, felt outstanding in hand, suffered no glitching, had ridiculously long range, and drove better futab radios costing significantly more than it does.

The 4PL actually went further than feet, but quite frankly even seeing the Gambler at feet was quite difficult. Zero problems, it rocks! Gotta give Futaba props on this one.

Glitching- We used the Futaba 4PL system for hours upon hours of laps and bashing and there was absolutely no glitching, not even once. Wheel- The steering wheel comes wrapped with what feels like the same high quality foam that furaba on the 4PKS. So off to the message boards I went.


As with all our stuff, if you see us at a track or bash spot, stop by and say hi! Maybe you can take a test drive, or at least get 4;l sweet stickers! How good of a radio system is it? The 4PL is top notch at everything it does, yet sports a very reasonable price point.

After I test out ftaba the radio to be certain it was operating perfectly I give my editor Brian a call. I mean surviving it once could have 4ll been a fluke. If you need more range than feet you are going to need binoculars as well. Summary in Tentacles Time To Bash — 9.

The grip felt slightly too small in diameter for one of our testers, but to others it felt fine.

To boil it down, the 4PL felt very natural to drive. During our testing we treated it like we stole it and had absolutely no problems of any type, so…. Fuaba 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.
