Easy to do......follow Harley and the "PLS" is easier than the PL....

Hello. I use my 4PL with a MOA. I set the Dig ok, but I want to set a button to cancel all the mix of the Dig, that is, to go in 100% with both motors with only one pulsation on this button.
How can I do this?
Thank you very much.
Ps: excuse me if my English is not very good.

Thank you.


Follow Harley's setup. Only one motor is proportional but I think you can dial the other down. I am happy with one motor proportional and dig


Hang up and Drive

Default OrangeRx receivers that work with Futaba 4PL

For the price I couldn't pass up the chance to try these two receivers.

OrangeRx SF400S

OrangeRx GR400S

I was going put the first one in my XR10 but because it takes up so little room I ended up putting it in my RC18B2. Range is at least equal to the Futaba R204GF-E receiver which is further than I can see whatever I'm driving so that's good enough for me.

The second one I tested in a Slash 4x4 with a Trackstar TS-920 servo to see how it would react with the extra amp draw. Works like a charm, range is great and it handled the servo no problem. Now I have one in my 1/12th pan car, a Tamiya F1 and a Turnigy GT-10X pan car. I plan to run them in my Wraith and AX-10 as soon as I get a few more. The antenna is short and can be coiled up in an Axial receiver box without affecting the range as far as I can tell.

These receivers will likely also work with all the other Futaba FHSS radios but I did not test them. (4PX, 4PV, 4PLS, 4GRS, 3PV, 3PRKA and 3PL)

I just got my new 4PLS yesterday, as far as crawling nothing has changed on it I'm guessing.
Time to brush up on Harleys videos.

I programmed a 4PLS as to the Harley video for dual ESC. I have a R304SB receiver with dual Tekin FXR ESC on ch2 and ch4. The rate on DT1 is working but the DT2 switch for dig is not working. Some help please!

Got it
The DT4 switch or whichever switch you set for dig should be set to ESC-MD and 3pos in order for dig to work.

I'm having some issues with my newly purchased 4pl and R204GF-E receiver. Throttle works great but I have no steering. I tried to re-bind and also checked my end point and dual rates. This is with my SCX10.2 with HH puller pro 2100kv, BLE pro ESC, HH HV500 servo with Heyok BEC. Any ideas?

I know this is an old thread, but has anyone had any luck binding the Hobbyking Orange GR400S Rx's with a Futaba 4PLS? I bought 6 of these rx's because i was told they would work with the 4PLS and I cant get them to bind?

Any help would be much appreciated.
