500th Lipo Anniversary today. Did I mention that it rained?! *bummer*. The weather here is driving me crazy *puke*.
The bike itself is running okay.
Just the occasional mishaps here and there. I bet they will all come together happily bouncing along hand in hand with a wide grin in their face in the wrong moment.

That's a lot of candles to blow out Edi.

Use the wind (and rain) between the mountains to help.

Hello Edi,

500 Lipos ?!?!
Wow

A little Calculation of mine:

500 Lipos with an average of 4000mAh = 2000000mAh = 2000Ah !

2000Ah x 7,4V = 14800Wh = 14,8 kWh !

14.8kw ... at 20cent x kwh ... it is only 3 euro of electric bill

500 Lipo x 8 min driving = 66.6 hours driving ... or almost 3 days driving

So ... 1 euro electric bill per day

Sorry to be a bother.

I will read the whole thread but, a simple question.

Is this bike available to me? Or was it just a one off thing?

Thanks !!

The bike is a small prototype series. I only sell it to people I know personally.
sorry but maybe one day it will be made by ~someone~ at a affordable price.

Thanks for your reply Edi. I did some more reading and found that out.

Unless I was racing there is no real need for me to have this fine machine.

A very nice ME WANT but, heck I want allot of things that I don;t need.

Maybe a RTR sb-5 they are cute and priced o.k. for street bashing.

Kudos to you for such a well done machine. One day I'll get off my duff and build a scratch 1/5 from some of your ideas.

A SB5 RTR is faster and handles better than most "High and Fly" STOCKBIKES!
Price is excellent and it takes a hell of a bashing.
Thanks for the Kudos *blushes*

Thanks for the advice!! I might buy one now!!...

Do you think it would be as easy for me to make my own carbon fiber bits like I did on my TT?? I would guess so??

All I did before was clamp the bike sideplate or other part to CF plate, dril 2 holes to bolt'em together and then transfer the important holes to the CF by small drill bit or marker and then cut out & drill.
It seems that easy...

I think that is the easiest way to do that. I think just about all of us have had to quickly copy a part at least once in our "RC-Life"... and we all did it that way
