There are the odd faulty ones I guess also but it may pay to check your wiring.

So your motor was working with the ESC before you plugged in the other one into the third channel. Now the e gyro works but the main motor doesn't . Try one at a time using the ESC that works in different channels maybe?

those pics are very impressive chktm!
i tried this a few years back with my anderson m5 and old gopro but looking back at them its very unstable lol
love the forward view with the arms in the pic but a shame the handlebars dont move cus that would up the realism loads,
i know its not really practical though due to the way the steering works but would be cool

nice work

As for uploading with HD, im not sure but when watching the video on youtube website, you can click the little "gear" option in the video window and select different resolutions including HD. Its possible the video program you have on your phone does something when it uploads to youtube though, not sure.

The water splash looked cool so I had to get a shot of it. Thanks John I'll try using my sons computer to do some and see what happens.

Welcome to the group!

I know you'll love the bike. I bought mine back on December and still enjoying it the same as I did the first day I ran it.
