Thanks John, you the man. Would it help or hurt if I sent one to the same effect?

Not sure what you mean. I've played with rear steer setups that were all or nothing and a DX6 that has infinite adjustment, but feel better using a pistol radio than sticks. I've seen GROVER's setup when he was running the Nomadio radio he had the thumb wheel that had incriment adjustments per click of the thumb wheel. I chose the DX6 so I could run dual ESC's and have Dig and rearsteer pluss the mixing ability to put everything on one stick etc...
But if I can get rear steer and atleast front dig out of the 4PK I would be willing to make the swap. Thanks for the help and all your patience with my questions.

I am uploading a video of my super class setup right now to demonstrate what I was explaining in my version.

Photobucket is crazy slow and the vid is 35mb. It will be a little while.

I just looked at that receiver again. So tiny! It would be a huge difference over the stock one (and the price difference would be nice). I doesn't look like it is a dual diversity unit though, probably not a big deal with crawlers though.

Very nice job! That is just how I am planning to do mine, but with different buttons and such.

Don't worry about sending an e-mail. I am looking into it now. I am ordering one up and we are contacting Futaba to see what we can do.
Thanks

Thanks John, I think it will work well for me since there is no way I can drive a stick radio

So I can stop calling your work, home, and cell phone constantly now? Thanks Jason, hoping for good news.

Just to let you guys know who need a case for this radio, Futaba has released a fitted Aluminum case now.

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXVUD3&P=7

I also ran across this angled adapter. For $7 what can it hurt to give it a try.

OK guys bad news. I just verified myself that it does not work with the 4PK. HOWEVER, we are talking to Futaba about getting something similar for ground use that works with the 4PK.
I will keep you posted.

Thanks to you all for the information. I have a Nomadio Sensor that is set up with most of this but i was always tweaked that it didnt have wheels to do the rear mixing for verticals.

Harley after watching your video i think the overpowering the rear would be useful in certain situations where the stall at very low throttle is hurting you. I can picture one local pot where it would help so thats enough for me.

I know where my tax return is going now. Im sure ill be back into this thread to figure it out.

Great work!

Glad we could all help

You will love this radio, I have had a number of Sensor/React guys use it and they really seemed to like it. Nomadio had the right idea but just had a couple things not quite right, plus burning up RX's sucks.

I had a react. It was good, but lack of support and mixing/program options had me wanting more. 4pk fills the need perfectly.

I havent burned up an RX yet that wasnt my own fault (I actually plugged the lead for the batter sensor into the wrong plug and BZZZTZTZTZZZZ) LOL

I agree completely. Im just glad someone finally filled the gap the Sensor left behind. I was tired of not being able to get any more parts/service for a $500 radio. Once my other sidewinder and my new motors get here (Hint Hint JRH) Ill start setting this all up.

Thanks again for all the tips guys, top notch!
