I just wanted to chime in on the DXR500. Finally got a chance to drive mine, needless to say it was an impressive change over the off road 450. The gyro has no weights in it stock.
The bike handled rather well out of the box. 2s 4000mah lipo hit a speed of 30mph on GPS.
Maybe a bit faster when I have more room to give it a go. Overall it's a well built strong bike.
A few mods and it'll be a quicker faster handling bike. I made my own shorter side skids to really lean the bike over without hitting them. I needed a bike to hit the parking lots when I'm not flying my planes or helis and this bike is just plain fun. I'm real happy and will be even happier to get it setup and dialed in a bit better to my liking. A great bang for the buck when you get it on "sale".
A great easy to drive entry bike that really has tons of potential to go all out.
