Other than that pop in 4 AA batteries and you are dialed. Rubber all the way around the grip would be optimal.
The 4PL is top notch at everything it does, yet sports a very reasonable price point. To boil it down, the 4PL felt very natural to drive.
After I test out of the radio to be certain it was operating perfectly I give my editor Brian a call. If you are a Futaba employee you might want to skip the next section…. Overall Feel- The 4PL has terrific ergonomics for most peoples hands, and perhaps more importantly, it feels like a high quality unit.
So you like a lot of people are in the market for a new transmitter. Time To Bash — 9. The grip has a strip of rubber on the front side to offer your hand added traction.
Trust me on this one. During our testing we treated it like we stole it and had absolutely no futana of any type, so…. The grip felt slightly too small in diameter for one of our testers, but to others it felt fine. Big Squid Rating — 9.
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. IMO, for a transmitter to be worthy of being Basher Approved its gotta at least take futana drop from pit table height. The Futaba 4PL is easy to use, felt outstanding in hand, suffered no glitching, had ridiculously long range, and drove better than radios costing significantly more than it does.
I mean surviving it once could have just been a fluke. Glitching- We used the Futaba 4PL system vutaba hours upon hours of laps and bashing and there was absolutely no glitching, not even once. I found fuatba people had reported the steering locks had broken on their 4PLs. As with all our stuff, if you see futbaa at a track or bash spot, stop 44pl and say hi!
The 4PL easily held its against the higher priced units. 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.
Conclusion- The more we tested the 4PL the more we liked it. 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. This is a firm density foam that provides good traction and generally feels like the best on the market. Zero problems, it rocks!

How good of a radio system is it? The 4PKS was slightly more comfortable in hand, and felt slightly more responsive on track, but the 4PL was right there in the hunt. Summary in Tentacles Time To Bash — 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.
Maybe you can take a test drive, or at least get some sweet stickers! Being the lazy sort that I am I stopped measuring at feet.
Read all about it right here. So off to the message boards I went.
So I grab our test 4PL and started twisting the wheel hard in both directions trying to break the stops. You can check out our 4PL unboxing pictures if you want a few more. Car Show Rating — 9. 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.
If you need more range than feet you are going to need binoculars as well. The 4PL actually went further than feet, but quite frankly even seeing the Gambler at feet was quite difficult.
Wheel- The steering wheel comes wrapped with what feels like the same high quality foam that comes on the 4PKS. I came across a couple of threads questioning the 4PLs durability. 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. Futaba hit a home run with their 4PL.
