This is a Futaba 4PM 2.4GHz T-FHSS 4-Channel Surface Transmitter with an R304SB Receiver. With its elaborate LCD screen, multi function switch, and telemetry function, the 4PM strikes the best balance between features and operability. Various data can be monitored from the driver's stand, which give you an advantage that leads to victory. 4PM can display many telemetry data such as a voltage of the receiver battery, an external power supply, temperature of a cylinder or motor case, and RPM of a motor, in real-time.
It is easy to adjust transmitter settings, such as digital trim button assignment and steering speed, from the easy access menu screen. LAP LIST function can shows both average time and total time. More intuitive settings of throttle and steering are possible, as well as Steering MIX. The characteristics of your programmable servo can be changed directly from the 4PM. 4PM can connect to Futaba speed controller to variable frequency and other data changes. The 4PM has SR-Mode, S-FHSS, and T-FHSS systems.

The main reason I went for this radio was because I was having a range issue with a ready to run radio I was using. I performed a range check on the Futaba. All I can say is that it has great range. We tested it on a clear road. I was in my car, a friend was staying with the RC car. I drove away and stopped every so often. I was forced to stopped at 1700 feet away due to a hill in the road. In any case, hill or not, at 1700 feet, I could barely see my friend standing there, let alone see the RC car. We were communicating via cell phones. More than enough range. I wonder how far it would go if I had a clearer road?
Finally, yes, its a great radio. However, its my opinion, its not necessary to have all of the functions this radio is capable of. I will be lucky if I were too use 10% of them. I think Futaba should make a radio with the great range this has, while keeping it simpler and more user friendly.
Great products and super fast shipping. Keep up the good work.
this transmitter and reciever is not super response style but they are still very quick and accurate!!
i would recommend this transmitter to anyone!!!
-Has a ton of adjustments for trigger tension/position and wheel tension.
-Cheap. flimsy battery cover lid, feels like if you're not careful you're going to crack it eventually
-No weight in bottom of radio without battery, wants to tip over if you're not careful
-No wrist/neck strap included
-No screen protector (had to buy from some other country on ebay)
-Why can't this display on the home screen, in real-time, my receiver battery voltage?
-Telemetry is ridiculously expensive and not worth it for cars/trucks.
Overall I like it, it does everything I need, but not everything I would like to have. And considering the price and modern tech compared to my old Hitec Radios from the late 90s/early 2000s you'd think we might get a few extra features other than new wireless tech between the transmitter and receiver. I still can't believe I can't see receiver voltage on the home screen.
it is a lite radio, also feels great in your hand, and is very easy to program, I am very pleased with my purchase
but want to add that Amain hobbies tech dept. is top notich as is Amain hobbies it is my go to hobby store.
