If you need more range than feet you are going to need binoculars as well. Rubber all the way around the furaba would be optimal.
Time To Bash — 9. 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. Futab 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.
And as far as raw speed was concerned, the 4PL was plenty quick for all of our testers. Conclusion- The more we tested the 4PL the more we liked it. Trust me on this one. 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 futwba easy to use, felt outstanding in vutaba, suffered no glitching, had ridiculously long range, and drove better than radios costing significantly more than it does. Next… I ran across a thread reporting their 4PL had broken from accidentally being dropped.
If you are a Futaba employee 4po might want to skip the next section…. After I test out of the radio to be certain it was operating perfectly I give my editor Brian a call.
Zero problems, it rocks! How good of a radio system is it? 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! The 4PL easily held its against the higher priced units.
Being the lazy sort that I am I stopped measuring at feet. 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.
During our testing we treated it like we stole it and had absolutely no problems of any type, so…. This is a firm density foam that provides good traction and generally feels like the best on the market. 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. 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. The 4PL is top notch at everything it does, yet sports a very reasonable price point. As with all our stuff, if you see us at a track or bash spot, stop by and say hi!
Futabaa grip felt slightly too small in diameter for one of our testers, but to others it felt fine. I came across a couple of threads questioning the 4PLs durability.
IMO, for a transmitter to be worthy of being Basher Approved its gotta at least take a drop from 4pll table height. 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.
Summary in Tentacles Time To Bash — 9. I found where people had reported the steering locks had broken on their 4PLs. Glitching- We used the Futaba 4PL system for hours upon hours of laps and bashing and there was absolutely no glitching, not even once. Big Squid Rating — 9. Other than futabz pop in 4 AA batteries and you are dialed.
So I grab our test 4PL and started twisting the wheel hard in both directions trying to break the stops. Car Show Rating — 9. Wheel- The steering wheel comes wrapped with what feels like the same high quality foam that comes on the 4PKS.
