This is the Futaba 4PKS-R 4-Channel 2.4GHz FASST Radio System with an included Futaba R614FS receiver. A transmitter that’s 5% faster - with additional mixing options, a more comfortable wheel grip and more. These are a few of the upgrades the Futaba team of engineers developed for the 4PK Super R. And the 4PK Super R comes equipped with the R614FS 2.4GHz FASST 4-Channel Receiver. The R614FS is a compact, lightweight, high-voltage unit, offering Dual Antenna Diversity that selects the best reception between two antennas and Pre-Vision™ technology that scans and filters incoming data. With the introduction of the 4PK Super R, the premier Futaba surface system for competitive drivers is better than ever!
- 5% faster response speed
- Lighter in weight thanks to titanium screws, a shorter antenna and aluminum neck strap hardware
- Dual compound steering wheel foam grip for greater comfort
- Model data transfer via cable
- Gyro mixing – compatible with Futaba’s new GYC430 gyro

- The included R614FF 2.4GHz FASST receiver is compact (1.38x0.91x0.33 inches) and lightweight (0.27 ounces), with much higher usable voltage (from 3.5V to 8.4V). Also available separately (FUTL7633).

I have owned a 4PK for a few years and decided to upgrade a bit and am very pleased with the updates. Expensive but this thing is a piece of art and worth the money. I love it and would recommend to anyone!
I bought this radio on Black Friday even though it was not on sale it's worth every penny I paid for it. My pan cars worked great tonight.

Purchased this radio a while ago, and I am very satisfied with the properties and functionality with the radio.
I got the 'R' version as I am thinking to build a crawler soon. Cant really find anything negative to say.
A big step from my old system, a Spectrum DX3S.
Recommend this radio for those who want a Futuba and the best of the best.
if you had the 4pks and went to this there is no difference that anyone could tell for cars but boats it has some new stuff but either way glad you like it
I think this radio is the best got a lot more out of my TA RC2.8e. It has tons of functions even though the futaba receivers are expensive there are plenty of others receivers that will work with it, for example Frysky receivers with 2.4ghz Fasst compatible seen one at another site for only $29.30. Just gotta find the right receivers on the tons of hobby stores, and not pay attention to just the word Futaba just have to find one that fits the profile.
This radio is excellent! If you're into r/c racing, this is the radio you want. Also, nice that it works with the less expensive Futaba FASST R603FS and R603FF recievers in addition to the top of the line R614FS and R614FF-E. I upgraded from the Futaba 3PM-X to the 4PKS-R.
Has interferance with older models, battery life is terrible. Receivers are very delicate (cases break). Receivers are very expensive and not all fhss receivers work with 4pksr. And not to mention the terrible customer service behind the product. Techs are arrogant and not very knowledgeable. Buy M12 and you will never have problems.
