Following our initial feature about Futaba’s new 4PX some weeks ago the Japanese company now have more information and especially images about their latest flagship radio system available. Compared to the 4PKS-R the transmitter is 30 percent faster and around 15g lighter for ultimate response and comfort. A full-color TFT display with intuitive menus makes operation hassle-free and the synthesised voice for telemetry data option allows drivers to hear updates via the built-in speaker or headphones. An assignable button on the bottom lets users activate key features instantly by touching it with their body. Compatibility with T-FHSS, S-FHSS and FASST protocols gives drivers the freedom to use the 4PX with their favourite Futaba 2.4GHz receivers. Durable, long-lasting potentiometers result in improved, precise calibration and a micro memory card port allows to update the software and transfer models from one 4PX to another.
