I think if its like the arx thats the clutch that spins the flywheel when revs drop it disengages but fly wheel keeps spinning to keep bike stable, and it looks like a normal nitro 3 shoe clutch to! and u can adjust its speed by removing small weights as in pic cool!

Still if this is 300 euros the bas model arx is same now to! though id imagine the anderson includes all ready to run arx does not!

Thanks

It is good that different manufacturers exploit new products and cheaper, but I think they have to improve the product better.

Oh I see it now, the three shoe clutch speeds up the flywheel in the back wheel, and then lets it carry on revving when you back off, good stuff.
I like the fact you can change the weight of it easily, but the lexan rider looks dubious - will it takes the knocks, and he is just a little large for the bike. Like a 6ft guy on a 125 scrambler he pinched off his kid ;-)

The videos look good but it'll have to be cheaper than 300 Euro to be worth buying over the ARX. Lets face it, how many of us would actually keep the stock electronics in it anyway. I personally, like to go brushless on everything and think this bike would be the same. I do like that it's smaller than the arx but agree with Dez that the rider doesn't look strong and he is out of proportion.

That said, I also like the battery mounting in comparison to the ARX and the gyro looks good too. I'm considering the egyro upgrade for my ARX but am bawking at the cost.

As someone said earlier, it would make a great motard!

Yeah, as mp- pointed out it doesn't seem to be constructed of too many high cost parts so I would hope the final price comes down a bit from that estimate. However, similar to the GPV-1, if it comes RTR it might be good for helping promote R/C bikes to the masses...

Looks like it leaves plenty of room for outside developers to come out with hop-up parts for the bike. And at the very least it'll make available 1/5 scale off road tires & wheels for those who might want to try their hands at a completely custom bike...

Higher volume and lower cost for the same technology is an improvement, no?

Now I've taken a closer look I like the ARX better. This is ready to run for 300 euros right? Nah, like stated above I change all the electronics anyway so the ARX would be a better buy for 299 euro.

Well I've driven the Anderson MX Bike now, and that Gyro is amazing!
You can pull to a halt, stop dead and then wheelie away, hilarious fun!

Check out RRCi review and video coming soon!

Jammy gits at the magazines always first with the new toys. Anything else about the bike you can share with us? Like an expected release date?

Do you think because the bike is smaller and might be lighter in weight plus the rider is much lighter also.That the gyro can perform better??

Real stable, easily adjustable gyro weights, takes a standard stick pack of NiMh, or a regular brick sized LiPo which is cool, so I presume it will take saddle pack (side by side) NiMh cells too, can't say much more just yet, I know they will be in the UK dealers in August.

I haven't tried the new electric gyro from AR yet, looking forward to doing some work with that in the near future too,

It's a dirty job but someone's got to do it

Hey Dez,

I know you can't say much about the bike just yet, but I was wondering if you could comment on the capabilities of a 1/5 scale off road bike vs the "usual" 1/4 scale?

I would imagine there are many off road environments where the size of the 1/4 scale bike is an advantage over the smaller bike. Sounds like the bike impressed you, but did you have issues with it being a bit smaller than the previous off road bikes?

Thanks,
Dave
