I may get this instead as I can buy it for the same money as the 4PL, except that the 3PKS has FASST, which is what the top racers use.

Still prefer Futaba over Sanwa and Spektrum

I’m thinking of buying a Futaba 4PL after I recently experienced several instances of steering-lag with my current FlySky GT3B, and car throttle malfunction which I initially thought was due to flat receiver pack, but in fact it was due to flysky receiver overheating! The GR3C receivers don’t seem to handle heat very well, and possibly they don’t handle Life-Po receiver batteries very well because back when I used NIMH, I don’t recall having this problem.

Currently, I’m still reading reviews online between Futaba 4PL and the Futaba 4PKS. 4PL has the S-FHSS, but no FASST technology like the 4PKS. I think 4PL is definitely better than my Flysky GT3B, but I wonder how much slower is it compared to 4PKS, which costs $200 more.

Meanwhile, I know for a fact 4PL is durable, and Basher-approved! thanks to the guys at BigSquidRC. This video is hilarious!
