More speed, more features, more radio for the money — that's what the 4PKS-R offers the serious competitor.
The original 4PKS was fast, but the 4PKS-R is five percent faster — a difference you can literally feel. Response is virtually instantaneous.
There are more features to work with, too: dual ESC mixing for crawlers, gyro mixing for drift cars and two programmable mixes. There's a dual-compound foam steering wheel for more comfort, a dual-mode high-voltage R614FS receiver for more servo options data transfer via cable between 4PKS-R systems for more convenience, an APA adapter for more wheel positioning flexibility.
In short, the 4PKS-R is a lot more than you'd expect for a lot less than you'd think.
The R614FS (FUTL7635) is compact, with a high-voltage design, fail-safe, DAD (Dual Antenna Diversity) and the push-button ease of the Easy-Link™.
The vibrating grip automatically alerts you when settings for the up, lap, fuel down or navigation timer expires.
With the Display Switch, you can do setup work on your radio without transmitting an RF signal. You can see 18 functions on a single screen, or all 36 on two.
All four menus can be customized, to include only the features and functions you want.
The Direct Select function provides fast, one-button access to the 8 features you use most.
The gyro function is ideal for adjusting the gain of any car gyro, including the Futaba GYC430 Car Drift Gyro. Use in Normal mode, or AVCS mode for greater straight-line stability. (FUTM0786).
