I came across a couple of threads questioning the 4PLs durability.
Wheel- The steering wheel comes wrapped with what feels like the same high quality foam that comes on the 4PKS. Car Show Rating — 9. So I grab our test 4PL and started twisting the wheel hard in both directions trying to break the stops. Big Squid Rating — 9. You can check out our 4PL unboxing pictures if you want a few more. Time To Bash — 9. I mean surviving it once could have just been a fluke. IMO, for a transmitter to be worthy of being Basher Approved its gotta at least take a drop from pit table height.
If you need more range than feet you are going to need binoculars as well. That somebody turned out to be me this time, so I futwba our test Venom Gambler as far as I could before losing control, then started measuring. I found where people had reported the steering locks had broken on their 4PLs.
Read all about it right here. Futaba hit a home run with their 4PL. Zero problems, it rocks! 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. Glitching- We used the Futaba 4PL system for hours upon hours of laps and bashing and there was absolutely no glitching, not even once.
Rubber all the way around the grip would be optimal. And as far as raw speed was concerned, the 4PL was plenty quick for all of our testers.

The grip has a strip of rubber on the front side to offer your hand added traction. This is a firm density foam that provides good traction and generally feels like the best on the market.
Trust me on this one. So on strict orders from the top I 4ppl up dropping the 4PL a few more times for video purposes. So off to the message boards I went. 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.
How good of a radio system is it? So you like a lot of people are in the market for a new transmitter. The grip felt slightly too small in diameter for one of our testers, but to others it felt fine. To boil it down, the 4PL felt very natural to drive. If you are a Futaba employee you might want to skip the next section…. 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.
Next… I ran across a thread reporting their 4PL had broken from accidentally being dropped. Conclusion- The futbaa we tested the 4PL the more we liked it.

The 4PL is 4pll notch at everything it does, yet sports a very reasonable price point. The 4PL actually went further than feet, but quite frankly even seeing the Gambler at feet was quite difficult.
The 4PL easily held its against the higher priced units. 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.
Summary in Tentacles Time To Bash — 9.
So I grab the 4PL and set it on my pit table…… and knock it off to the concrete floor futaha my garage, not once, but twice. The 4PKS was slightly more comfortable in hand, and felt slightly more responsive on track, but the 4PL was right there in the hunt.
Maybe you can take a test drive, or at least get some sweet stickers!
