The Futaba 3PV Radio System is sophisticated, powerful and easy to use. Pick up the 3PV and instantly feel how lightweight it is. Once you access the programming menu on the easy-to-read screen, you will instantly recognize how sophisticated the programming is. But the real experience happens when you get to take advantage of the 3PV's super-fast response rate. This is a system that can make a difference on race day. You also get FHSS, S-FHSS and T-FHSS protocols, making it one of R/C's most versatile surface system.

This version of the 3PV with high-voltage R203GF receiver (FUTK3201) is perfect for brushless ESCs and digital servos. But the 3PV is also available with the R304SB telemetry receiver (FUTK3200) for those that want to keep an eye on their receiver voltage.

Futaba 3PV 3-Channel 2.4GHz FHSS/S-FHSS Radio System w/R203GF Receiver
Just what I was looking for to replace my RTR radio.

Had issues with the stock transmitter and receiver of my Losi RTR. Went through two replacements and an upgrade of the same brand. Both replacements and the upgrade were plagued with issues. This Futaba stopped all that nonsense. Plop batteries in it, plug in your ESC, select S-FHSS or FHSS mode, hit the bind button on the receiver and you're in business. Say goodbye to bind plugs, complicated binding procedures or sacrificial offerings to the RC gods in the hope you got the correct sequence of trigger pulls, dial twidling, distance from the receiver or just plain waiting long enough for it to magically work.

Steering input reacts much quicker and handles high voltage servos with ease. A little adjustment of the sub trim and the throttle expo in my case, and it's a much more "connected" feeling to the car. Super easy to adjust on the fly despite the rather archaic menu and display. Whatever. It works perfectly and is more than adequate for the task.

Feel is a little cheap. This is true. Fit is perfect my hands, but this is a personal thing. You may not feel the same. For the price, I don't think you'll find better. Highly recommended!

love the new radio, very light and fast. mine came with the steering wheel foam that seems to be too small for the wheel, all the picture I can find show it filling the wheel from edge to edge but mine doesn't, affects the feel and hand eye a little, not enough to complain. I will try to contact futaba to see if this is planned or I got a defect.

For the price you pay for this radio, the performance is great. Very responsive and functionality is pretty good. Only let down the cheap feel compared to a more expensive Futaba or Airtronics. However, great value and functionality for price. Cheers

Seriously, what a great radio! Everything you need to tweak and for such an insane price.

The trigger on this is HUGE! Great for people with fat sausage fingers - much bigger than the 4PV trigger.

Wheel foam is fine on mine, but plastic case/frame a weird finish spot under the buttons. NO biggie.

Futaba 3PV 3-Channel 2.4GHz FHSS/S-FHSS Radio System w/R203GF Receiver
This transmitter/receiver combination is a huge improvement over RTR units. Very adjustable and feels good in various sizes of hands. Did find that wrapping the somewhat smooth handle with tennis grip tape made the feel great for both my wife and myself. This system is excellent in its price range.

Futaba 3PV 3-Channel 2.4GHz FHSS/S-FHSS Radio System w/R203GF Receiver
Tremendous upgrade over an RTR radio. The ability to set the brake end point is now a must-have feature for me. This changes the whole behavior and driving experience of a 2WD RC car. This allows you to more easily brake without locking up your tires and spinning out. Really has improved my driving and enjoyment. The radio came paired with the receiver so no worries there. The only issue was the receiver was much larger than the stock receiver and it took some patience making it and all the wires/antenna fit inside the stock receiver box. Range and performance is excellent.

Futaba 3PV 3-Channel 2.4GHz FHSS/S-FHSS Radio System w/R203GF Receiver
Love it, never had one problem binding or anything. Fast response time, limited telemetry options for a hundred bucks, can’t beat it. And cheap receivers too. For this price it’s the best looking, all the others look or feel clunky. Only draw-backs might be, for small hands, has a long reach to reverse, and menu is long, pushing the buttons many many times to scroll through it.

Decent performance at a decent price. Way better response than the Spektrum crap that comes stock nowadays. Grip seam felt weird to me at first but not a deal breaker.

I bought this for my Wraith and love it so far. I have large hands and the fit is perfect, the menu is pretty user friendly once you get used to it, although back lighting would be nice.
It connected with my Hobbywing 1080 ESC instantly with no binding needed, It just worked :) I like that.
The 3PV is a good upgrade for the price with lots of useful features my stock controller did not have.

I have given this controller chance after chance over the past year. Not only does it not like to bind. It loves to randomly reset all my adjustment. It also loves to randomly unbind itself as well. By far the worst controller I have ever had.

Futaba 3PV 3-Channel 2.4GHz FHSS/S-FHSS Radio System w/R203GF Receiver
I brought this radio and reciver (Futaba 3pv with the R203GF Reciver) wanting to set up 4 wheel steering on my rock crawler. The specifications on this radio said that it can have 4ws mixing but in the instruction manual on page 20 it says that this fuction can't be used in R203GF. What can I do to get the 4ws to work, is my only opitions to buy either the R304SB or the R314SB if someone can help that would be great.
