$500 EBIKE for exploring Yorkshire and fpv in different places. Review.

Bit random BUT very relevant to my fpv quad flying as it will allow me to cheaply and easily get out and about further afield to fly my fpv quads which I can simply chuck in a rucksack and effortlessly explore the Yorkshire area with that electric assist to help out up the hills ( which are considerably steel and plentiful in Yorkshire lol )

$500 Fiido d3s electric"folding" bike ebike with Shimano gear and disc brakes (7 min 8 sec)

I will make some videos of the rides too when I get an idea of where to best ones are and can do them without stopping every 2 minutes to figure out where I'm going lol.
Yesterday I did 30 miles on it mostly on the wonders of wakefield cycle route which was meant for mountain bikes but this managed it ok and I only used the power for the hills and when I got tired , still had 4 out of 5 bars of power left when I got home!

It has a range of pure power to about about 15 miles but with pedaling it's looking like I could go for as long as I want just use the power to take the pain out of the hills.
Has proper 6 speed Shimano gears and disc brakes and though the wheels are small they are wide decent tyres with good grip and strong enough to handle the rough ground and pot holes we have around here.

I'm 5ft 10 and it is ok for me to ride size wise and of course goes much smaller and also folds down a bit to fit in a car but doesn't fold in half which is good and bad, good in that it makes it stronger but bad in that it won't fold as small.
A couple of pics from my ride out.
