Car Show Rating — 9. After I test out of the radio to be certain it was operating perfectly I give my editor Brian a call.

Read all about it right here. So on strict orders from the top I ended up dropping the 4PL a few more times for video purposes. 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.

The Futaba 4PL is easy to tutaba, felt outstanding in hand, suffered no glitching, had ridiculously long range, and drove better 4;l radios costing significantly more than it does. Big Squid Rating — 9. Trust me on this one. So you like a lot of people are in the market for a new transmitter. 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.

I mean surviving it once could have just been a fluke. Zero problems, it rocks!

As with all our stuff, if you see us at a track or bash spot, stop by and say hi! Time To Bash — 9. Overall Feel- The 4PL has terrific ergonomics for most peoples hands, and perhaps more importantly, it feels like a high quality unit.


If you need more range than feet you are going to need binoculars as well. Wheel- The steering wheel comes wrapped with what feels like the same high quality foam that comes on the 4PKS. So off to the vutaba boards I went. The 4PKS was slightly more comfortable in hand, and felt slightly more responsive on track, but the 4PL was right there in the hunt. To boil it down, the 4PL felt very natural to drive. Conclusion- The more we tested the 4PL the more we liked it. The 4PL easily held its against the higher priced units.

The grip felt slightly too small in diameter for one of our testers, but to others it felt fine. Maybe you can take a test drive, or at least get some sweet stickers! Gotta give Futaba props on this one. At the top of your priority list is 2. Rubber all the way around the grip would be optimal. During our testing we treated it like we stole it and had absolutely futabw problems of any type, so….

Futaba 4PLS 4-Channel T-FHSS Radio System

The moment you turned the wheel fuhaba the transmitter the tires on your car were swinging as intended, and the throttle action seemed equally responsive. 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.

Being the lazy sort that I am I stopped measuring at feet. If you are a Futaba employee you might want to skip the futxba section…. Next… I ran across a thread reporting their 4PL had broken from accidentally being dropped. The 4PL is top notch at everything it does, yet sports a very reasonable price point. Other than that pop in 4 AA batteries and you are dialed. And as far as raw speed was concerned, the 4PL gutaba plenty quick for all of our testers.


This is a firm density foam that provides good traction and generally feels like the best on the market. The 4PL actually went further than feet, but quite frankly even seeing the Gambler at 4p, was quite difficult. I came across a couple of threads questioning the 4PLs durability.

Futaba 4PL

How 4lp of a radio system is it? Futaba hit a home run with their 4PL. Enjoy the video, and if you end up owning a 4PL know its not the end of the world if it accidentally gets bumped off your tailgate. Summary in Tentacles Time To Bash — 9.

The grip has a strip of rubber on the front side to offer your hand added traction. All in all our test 4PL hit terra firma 10 times, 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. So I grab our test 4PL and started twisting the wheel hard in both directions trying to break the stops. Umm… did you get video?? 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 futwba.
