And as far as raw speed was concerned, the 4PL was plenty quick for all of our testers. IMO, for a transmitter to be worthy of being Basher Approved its gotta at least take a drop from pit table height. To boil it down, the 4PL felt very natural to drive. If you need more range than feet you are going to need binoculars as well. Being the lazy sort that I am I stopped measuring at feet.
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.
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. Read all about it right here. Zero problems, it rocks! So on strict orders from the futabaa I ended up dropping the 4PL a few more times for video purposes.

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. Time To Bash — 9.
Big Squid Rating — 9. 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. Conclusion- The more we tested the 4PL the more we liked it. This is a firm density foam that provides good traction and generally feels like the best on the market. Futaba hit a home run with their 4PL.
The 4PL easily dutaba its against the higher priced units. How good of a radio system is it? Gotta give Futaba props on this one. That somebody turned out to be me this time, so I drove futaab test Venom Gambler as far as I could before losing control, then started measuring. Maybe you can take a test drive, or at least get some sweet stickers! Trust me on this one. Other than that pop in 4 AA batteries and you are dialed. After I test out of the radio to be certain it was operating perfectly I give my editor Brian a call.
The grip felt slightly too small in diameter for one of our testers, but to others it 44pl fine. Summary in Tentacles Time To Bash — 9.
Wheel- The steering 4p, comes wrapped with what feels like the same high quality foam that comes on the 4PKS. At the top of your priority list is 2. Rubber all the way around the grip would be optimal.
Umm… did you get video?? Overall Feel- The 4PL has terrific ergonomics for most peoples hands, and perhaps more importantly, it feels like a high quality unit.

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 Futaba 4PL is easy to use, felt outstanding in hand, suffered no glitching, had 4pp long range, and drove better futqba radios costing significantly more than it does. The 4PKS was slightly more comfortable in hand, and felt slightly more responsive on track, but the 4PL was right there in the hunt.
I came across a couple of threads questioning the 4PLs durability. I mean surviving it once could have just been a fluke. During our testing we treated it like we stole it and had absolutely no problems of any type, so…. The grip has a strip of rubber on the front side to offer your hand added traction.
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 actually went further than feet, but quite frankly even seeing the Gambler at feet was quite difficult.
So off to the message boards I went. Car Show Rating — 9.
