You should be running both out with a BEC. Just about any decent servo will be more than the FXR can handle if you are running 3s.

Set up this radio last night, got it in from RPP Hobby, I must say, I am insanely impressed! Might pick up a second to replace the scalers' DX3R. This thing has the simple programming, and very smooth and simple! Thanks Futaba!

I'm running my bec straight to the servo. No way I'm running a 7980 through any receiver.

The RX can flow over 7.4v without any problem.

Could it also handle the amp draw of a 7980?

sorry about this question but if you were going to use this for a super would you wait and see if the electronics get upgraded or purchase it now and just adjust to the system that is installed now ? thanks

From what my long time buddy at my LHS told me. In the 25 years that he is opened, he has only seen Futaba make one recall on a radio.

I would say Futaba will tell the 4PL buyers to take it as it is or move on to the 4PKS.

I myself, am purchasing the 4PKS just for the fact that it can be flashed through a PC. For me just this feature removes the "6 month" end of life from the radio and is well worth the $200 upgrade from a 4PL.

Also the better build is the other. I have been in RC's for 20 years now and it's about time I by myself the Top of the line radio as a x-mas gift to me from me.

Now all I need is to figure out which crawler, dual ESC/ motors and then I will be set.

Who knows I may take a picture of the crawler climbing over my Losi Lst XXL. Becaseu if I do it the other way around...bye bye crawler.

that's the one...the 3PK i think it was...

Anyways I am not here to say it won't happen...just don't be dissapointed when they don't do it. By then I should be a few months in getting to know my 4PKS and my new crawler.

Nope it was the 4PKs that they updated for us crawlers. They have listened to exactly what we have told them so far. I would expect the same here. I hope to have info soon.

Here is some info that Futaba wanted me to share on the 4PL.

The 4PL will work with the following receivers.
R603GF (In FHSS Mode), R2004GF (In FHSS Mode), R2104GF (In FHSS & SFHSS Modes).
All three receivers above has a voltage range of 4.8 to 7.4V's.

J


**Edit by Harley**

The R2106GF and R2006GS receivers have been tested to work with this radio as well even though Futaba does not list them. See this post in this thread: Futaba 4PL Setup, Tips, Tricks & Help
