This is the Futaba 4PKS 4-Channel 2.4GHz FASST Radio System. This is the updated 4PK that includes a R614FF Receiver. The Futaba 4PK was only just released and drew a lot of attention from racers due to its rather unique look. The 4PK’s contemporary styling is not only unique, it’s extremely well balanced and ergonomic and because the transmitter only weighs 1.5 pounds, you won’t worry about hand fatigue all the way through a grueling main. Besides the re-positionable wheel, you can also adjust the trigger location to fit your finger and programming pluses include 40-model memory, 12-character naming, super-sensitive 2048 resolution and a 4th channel that’s ideal for adjusting front and rear brake bias in monster trucks. And here’s the best part: the 4PK was designed from the beginning as a spread spectrum system, which means the 2.4GHz module is built in, a state-of-the-art receiver is included, and all of the incredible advantages of FASST system technology are at your command!


Features

  • Much consideration went into the design of the 4PK’s grip, which is slightly thicker to accommodate larger hands.  Besides being lighter, the transmitter’s weight is well balanced for added comfort.
  • Achieve perfect “feel” in seconds with the Advanced Positioning Adapter.  You can drop the wheel down, move it left or right, even change the angle – a feature many drivers have requested.
  • The trigger position can also be shifted by as much as 7mm.  This allows you to customize the radio for sharper response based on finger size.
  • The redesigned keypad features a large 4-direction jog button for quick access and scrolling.  Important functions can be assigned to buttons on the wheel housing to keep them within easy reach.
  • Not only is the backlit LCD screen large enough for easy reading without eye strain, it’s also angled for instant viewing without having to tilt the transmitter.
  • Because the 4PK was engineered from the beginning for 2.4GHz modulation, there’s no long, unwieldy antenna.  Instead, the antenna is shorter and lighter in weight, folds down for easy storage, and pivots for optimum reception.
  • No NiCd battery here – the 4PK comes with an 1700mAh NiMH pack that’s comparable in size, but with almost twice the capacity.  That means about TWO HOURS of operation on a single charge – enough for the longest of mains and maybe even an entire weekend of racing!
  • The included R604FS receiver features Dual Antenna Diversity (DAD) for reliability and security.  Its compact size (1.54 x 1.02 x .55 inches) and weight (0.49 ounces) lets you use it in the tightest installations.
  • “New Driver”, “Race-Ready”, “Expert” and “Big Car” menus that add functions based on driving skill level and experience
  • Throttle Mode Select, for selecting acceleration/brake servo neutral points between 70/30 for nitro or 50/50 for electrics
  • Vibrating alert system
  • “Direct Select” single-button access to eight preassigned functions
  • Navigation Lap Timer that sounds when target lap time is exceeded
  • Servo Display Screen shows set-ups/mixes for individual servos (Expert Menu)
  • Throttle programming options, including 5-point curve, Expo and VTR

Beg, borrow, or steal the extra money this radio costs. It is single-handedly the best piece of radio control gear you will ever own. This radio is an absolute pleasure to use. The adjustable spring tension on the trigger and the wheel, along with the adjustable positioning of the trigger and the wheel make the radio personal and custom to your taste. The smoothness and accuracy of it's control is second to none. The radio is the last link between you and your car, make it a good one. Personally Coming from a DX3R to this radio, I can tell you that it's like going from a Chevy Cobalt to a McLaren F1. Please try one of these radios. You won't be sorry.

quote from Dustin "Personally Coming from a DX3R to this radio, I can tell you that it's like going from a Chevy Cobalt to a McLaren F1." ....The price of the 4PKS is equivalent to the price of a Chevy Cobalt! Lol...

Well after 10 months of using this radio the throttle on the radio is causing my throttle servo to change positions. I put a new servo in plugged in different receiver and it is still doing it. It sucks that a $500 radio already is having issues on it after 10 months and on top of that the radio has super low hours on it. I am sending back this week so I will get to see how Futabas warranty is. I will repost once I hear from them.
