How long is not have long range?

Mine have been tested up to 20m distance ... above 20m the bike is too small for be driven for me

Ps: fresh tx battery normally help on extend a bit the radio range ...

I'm also using rechargeable on my TX ... but I have experience longer range ... I know it is a dummy question ... but did you fully extend the TX antenna ... this is not a 2.4Ghz with short antenna ... it need some long antenna.

In case ... you can open the TX and check that the antenna is properly connected ... maybe some cable is lose inside ...

Got my Honda today so I took it for a run before I do any mods. The cornering is so bad compared to the Ducati with direct steering. But I think the Honda is a much better looking bike but one thing why do the Hondas have 2 tail pipes?

The A and the B both run the same. I found if I have a lot of metal around me it cut in and out. Need to upgrade to 2.4ghz that's the way to go.

With the direct steering on a stock bike don't pull the fishing line tight it will restrict the riders movement and turn way to sharp. Leave a fair bit of slack you only need the front wheel to turn a little bit if it turns to hard it will just through over to the carsh bars plus you hardly need to turn the wheel on the RX now. If you go full lock at top speed you will almost crash. It's a hell of a lot different then the stock steering taking abit to get use to the counter steer thing but it def gets around the corners better
