Big Squid Rating — 9. Read all about it right here.
I found where people had reported the steering locks had broken on their 4PLs. Other than that pop in 4 AA batteries and you are dialed.
Summary in Tentacles Time To Bash — 9. Umm… did you get video??
So you like a lot of people are in the market for a new transmitter. This is a firm density foam that provides good traction and generally feels like the best on the market. Wheel- The steering wheel comes wrapped with what feels like the same high quality foam that comes on the 4PKS. 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. Glitching- We used the Futaba 4PL system for hours upon hours of laps and bashing and there was absolutely no glitching, not even once.
Zero problems, it rocks!
The grip has a strip of rubber on the front side to offer your hand added traction. Time To Bash — 9.
If you need more range than feet you are going to need binoculars as well. 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.
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. 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 44pl as it did when it came out of the box.
Next… I ran across a thread reporting their 4PL had broken from accidentally being dropped. Being the lazy sort that I am I stopped measuring at feet. And as far as raw speed was concerned, the 4PL was plenty quick for all futabaa our testers.
The 4PL easily held its against the higher priced units.
The 4PKS was slightly more comfortable in hand, and felt slightly more responsive on track, but the 4PL was futabx there in the hunt. Car Show Rating — 9. 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…. I came across a couple of threads questioning the 4PLs durability. Trust me on this one.
IMO, for a transmitter to be worthy of being Basher Approved its gotta at least take a drop from pit table height. The 4PL actually went further than feet, but quite frankly even seeing the Gambler at feet was quite difficult. Overall Feel- The 4PL has terrific ergonomics for most peoples hands, and perhaps more importantly, it feels like a high quality unit.
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.
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. Maybe you can take a test drive, or at least get some sweet stickers! The grip felt slightly too small in diameter for one of our testers, but to others it felt fine.
As with all our stuff, if you see us at a track or bash spot, stop by and say hi!
