Hi guys ...

I did my little direct steering mod

Just tested in the living room ... since outside there is tons of snow ...

So, steering is ultra responsive ... but in little space and low speed is not improving really the turning accuracy ... but it made to turn extremely fast

So ... the trick .. is just to connect the rider shoulder to the opposite front suspension

In some months I will be able to test outside ...

ps: Still there is enough play for allow the bike to drive straight with no problem ...

Try using some rubber bands, it should work better.

Do you refer to my post ?

Did you try already to connect shoulders to the front steering in the Silverlit via rubber bands ?

Grazie

Hi e_lm_70,

non, I didn't try but it should act as a spring giving the triple the possibility to turn more freely.

Give it a try, I think it should work, and keep us updated!

Ciao.

Are you steering right to turn left, or the other way? I have a 1:5 Supatoys bike that I tried to convert to proper RC which works by counter steering (right to turn left). That tips the weight of the bike into the turn and the wheel goes the other way, like a speedway bike.

Are you still leaning the rider too? If so, is it on a separate stick on your transmitter, or are they both worked from the same stick?

There is a lot of play due to the flexing of the rider ... so a standard rope is just ok ...

I need to try on a bigger space ... my indoor tests are not good enough ... but outside I have snow everywhere ...

Sure ... the opposite shoulder is connected to the front suspension ... this mean then when the rider is moving down on the left for take the turn on the left ... also the front tyre is turning in the opposite direction ... exactly as pictured out in your photo

I should make a video and post on you tube ... but I'm too lazy .. and almost ready from my Xmas trip ...

That sounds like a good way to do it, e_lm_70. I'd pictured two servos but I guess that would make it too complicated, and there probably isn't enough room for a second servo.

You can see from my photos ... all what you need is two pieces of a little rope ... luckily at home I had one in red .. that made it almost not visible ...

Is the most simple possible modification

If you are near Vienna on the 9th of January, come to the Indoor Track at Traiskirchen.
We have a Car race going on there, but you should be able to test your bike in the lunch break.
I'll bring my GPV-1, and there should be some more bikers too.
