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

IMO, for a transmitter to be worthy of being Basher Approved its gotta at least take a drop from pit table height. Zero problems, it rocks! The 4PL is top notch at everything it does, yet sports a very reasonable price point. Time To Bash — 9.

Read all about it right here. Conclusion- The more we tested the 4PL the more we liked it. If you need more range than feet you are going to need binoculars as well.

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


I mean surviving it once could have just been a fluke. Trust me on this one. The fuatba actually went further than feet, but quite frankly even seeing the Gambler at feet was quite difficult.

To boil it down, the 4PL felt very rutaba to drive. The grip felt slightly too small in diameter for one of our testers, but to others it felt fine. Umm… did you get video?? Next… I ran across a thread reporting their 4PL had broken from accidentally being dropped.

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. You can check out our 4PL unboxing pictures if you fhtaba a few more. I found where people had reported the steering locks had broken on their 4PLs.

Overall Feel- The 4PL has terrific ergonomics for most peoples hands, and perhaps more importantly, it feels like a high quality unit. As with all our stuff, if you see us at a track or bash spot, stop by and say hi! This is a firm density foam that provides good traction and generally feels like the best on the market.

Being the lazy sort that I am I stopped measuring at feet. Glitching- We used the Futaba 4PL system for hours upon hours of laps and bashing and there was absolutely no glitching, not even once.


So I grab our test 4PL and started twisting the wheel hard in both directions trying to break the stops. So off to the message boards I went. So on strict orders from the top I ended up dropping the 4PL a few more times for video purposes.

At the top of your priority list is 2. Other than that pop in 4 AA batteries and you are dialed. Gotta give Futaba props 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.

How good of a radio system is it? I came across a couple of threads questioning the 4PLs durability. 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. Rubber all the way around the grip would be optimal. The 4PL easily held its against the higher priced units.

Futaba hit a home run with their 4PL.
