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.

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. The 4PKS was slightly more comfortable in hand, and felt fuyaba more responsive on track, but the 4PL was right there in the hunt. Other than that pop in 4 AA batteries and you are dialed. Next… I ran across a thread reporting their 4PL had broken from accidentally being dropped. The moment you turned the wheel on the transmitter the tires on your car were swinging as intended, and the throttle action seemed equally responsive.

At the top of your priority list is 2.

Futaba 4PLS 4-Channel T-FHSS Radio System

Time To Bash — 9. Being the lazy sort that I am I stopped measuring at feet. So on strict orders from the top I ended up dropping the 4PL a few more times for video purposes. If you are a Futaba employee you might want to skip the next section….


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!


The grip has a strip of rubber on the front side to offer your hand added traction. Maybe you can take a test drive, or at least get some sweet stickers! Trust me on this one. So I grab our test 4PL and started twisting the wheel hard in both directions trying to break the stops. Car Show Rating — 9. Gotta give Futaba props on this one. I mean surviving it once could have just been a fluke. Umm… did you get video?? If you need more range than feet you are going to need binoculars as well.

Zero problems, it rocks! Wheel- The steering wheel comes wrapped with what feels like the same high quality foam that comes on the 4PKS. The 4PL is top notch at everything it does, yet sports a very reasonable price point. Big Squid Rating — 9.

This is a firm density foam that provides good traction and generally feels like the best on the market.

Glitching- We used the Futaba 4PL system for hours upon fjtaba of laps and bashing and there was absolutely no glitching, not even once. The grip felt slightly too small in diameter for one of our testers, but to others it felt fine. Conclusion- The more we tested the 4PL the more we liked it. Downsides- Not many with the 4PL- we had futbaa 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.


During our testing we treated it like we stole it and had absolutely no problems of any type, so….

Futaba 4PL

And as far as raw speed was concerned, the 4PL was plenty quick for all of our testers. To boil it down, the 4PL felt very natural to drive.

You can check out our 4PL unboxing pictures if you want a few more. So I grab the 4PL and set it on uftaba pit table…… and knock it off to the concrete floor in my garage, not once, but twice.

Futaba hit a home run with their 4PL. So you like a lot of people are in the market for a new transmitter. The Futaba 4PL is easy to use, felt outstanding vutaba hand, suffered no glitching, had ridiculously long range, and drove better than radios costing significantly more than it does.
