1/5th MX RTR, Anderson M5 Cross, from Schumacher UK


This 1/5th Electric RTR MX bike is proving a lot of fun so far, and very robust!

A full review, and proper RRCi video is in progress, but for now here's a bit of fun we had at Halifax with it! Enjoy!

I know I shouldn't laugh at you guys, but that is halarious.
The looks on your faces right before the bike hits you is priceless.

Quite the reverse, laugh away, that's the point, try stopping Phil, may as well chuck him a fish, Onk Onk Onk!

Some of the spectators calling in the background is brilliant
"Full Speed!" shouts Dave A,
"Hit him in the head" screams Graham C, nice hey,
"This is gonna hurt Colin" shouts Snooey!

Colins a good driver and a good sport, I got my own back by pulling a wheely over his legs! priceless.

Dez,

I see you have the video out there now. Looks pretty darn good with their mechanical gyro. Guess I'll drop the idea of working on an electric gyro for it.

Though I'm hoping to purchase a set of the wheels & tires soon to start building a bike around...

Don't know the US price, only that it'll be 250 RRp in the Uk which is ace!

As for battery etc, the ESC and motor are as per the RTR kit, and the battery was a Core LiPo 3200 mAh 2S stick pack shape. I ran it with a NiMh battery too but it wouldn't pull wheelies, so we stuck to the LiPo stick pack

Wow, the bike looks to be quite drivable.
I got to have one now that I've seen it drive.

Will the RC-Bikes be invading the dirt tracks next?

Now that was geat! Super stable!

It also seems like having the lexan rider helps with the stability of the bike also.

Here's a couple of still shots from the firth coming RRCi review in progress....







and here is my wheelie bar mod to protect the rear mudguard!
6mm drill through both upright walls in rear seat loop, 6mm Nylon scratch bar material, seat screw holds it in, how simple is that! And it works!
