The grip has a strip of rubber on the front side to offer your hand added traction. If you need more futaga than feet you are going to need binoculars as well. Read all about it right here.
Maybe you can take a test drive, or at least get some sweet stickers! Umm… did you get video?? You can check out our 4PL unboxing pictures if you want a few more. The 4PL is top notch at everything it does, yet sports a very reasonable price point.
Overall Feel- The 4PL has terrific ergonomics for most peoples hands, and perhaps more importantly, it feels like a high quality unit. The 4PKS was slightly more comfortable in hand, and felt slightly more responsive on track, but the 4PL was right there in the hunt. Next… I ran across a thread reporting their 4PL had broken from accidentally being dropped.
Futaba hit a home run with their 4PL.
So on strict orders from the top I ended up dropping the 4PL a few more times for video purposes. Downsides- Not many with the 4PL- we had one tester complain the trigger was too tight, and another that the grip was too small, futabw the bulk of our testers loved how the 4PL felt.
How good of a radio system is it? 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.
Fuaba our testing we treated it like we stole it and had absolutely no problems of any type, so…. Trust me on this one.

I mean surviving it once could have just been a fluke. The 4PL actually went further than feet, but quite frankly even seeing the Fuhaba at feet was quite difficult. I found where people had reported the steering locks had broken on their 4PLs. At the top of your priority list is 2. Big Squid Rating — 9. To boil it down, the 4PL felt very natural to drive. Other than that pop in 4 AA batteries and you are dialed. Summary in Tentacles Time To Bash — 9. Glitching- We used the Futaba 4PL system for hours upon hours of laps and bashing and there was absolutely no glitching, not even once.
IMO, for a transmitter to be worthy of being Basher Approved its gotta at least take a drop from pit table height.
Rubber all the way around the grip would be optimal. As with all our stuff, if you see us at a track or bash spot, stop by and say hi!
Being the lazy sort that I am I stopped measuring at feet. Gotta give Futaba props on this one.
Conclusion- The more we tested the 4PL the more we liked it. Time To Bash — 9. So off to the message boards I went. 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. Zero problems, it rocks!
