I think Futaba 4pk it's a copy of DX3R, anybody confirm it?
Obviously the design of 4PK it's more bulky and huge compared with Spektrum one, anyway i don't like so much these kind of radical designs like Nomadio instead of simplicity kinds.
But i didn't see in pictures if works only with 4AA cells, if their FSST system it's derived from DSM2 or its really as fast as, due i never use Futaba kinds before.

That 4PK looks like it's ready to kill someone. I don't need a new radio, but suddenly I really want one!

the 4pk looks like a cross between a transmitter and a fishing pole.

I was starting to look for a new radio for the coming year. I think I may have found it. i like the look of the new 4pk. I'm just afraid of the price to tell the wife on how much it will be.

No its not a copy or any type of cooperation between the two. Its their own radio just as all others have been. Futaba's Fasst is different from Spektrum as well. The Fasst system is a LOT more responsive and faster than the Spektrum stuff....although most might not be able to tell the difference but under certain circumstances its easy to feel.

Futaba's system is based on Nomadio technology.

Therefore it is faster then Spektrum.

The 4PK certainly looks more balanced than the 3PK, if it fits me is better is balanced and lighter, it's my new radio.

The Futaba system has nothing to do with Nomadio. Futaba's product was designed and built by Futaba.
