HobbyKing GR-5 1/5 EP Motorcycle with Gyro

Late to the game, just saw this. They copied a lot of features from other bikes, and looks like it will break at first crash but pretty cool at that price point.

Appears to be a carbon copy of the Duratrax DXR500 (or Anderson M5) to me.

I don't think the chassis is conventional ABS. I'm thinking a composite material stronger than more plastic (abs). The outside fairing might be thick abs though. Probably the chassis is made of Rc car chassis plastic.

Low chance the chassis is made of model plastic.

Some pic. of the box.

I will have to charge my camera battery to get some pic. of the bike,
but I can say the only thing I see Hobby King is the stickers the rest
is Anderson Racing.

My opinion: If I were to choose between the 2.. this bike will be more fun than the kyosho.
