hello, i've been curious about that as well, although it seems you're the first one to start a discussion about rc bikes.
i've had a venom gpv-1 since december, but i'm having trouble getting it running; apparently it's not as "rtr" as the box says it should be. it could be that i'm just too used to 4 wheels...

Hi there! Thanks for your reply, its good to know at least one guy here is interested in bikes! Man you got a great bike there, is it your first time to run a bike? I got a venom too, I know its hard at first especially if you are used to running 4 wheels like most of us do, but if you get the hang of it and with a little tweaking, its sooo addicting! I also have a TTe and some scratchbuilt bikes I'm playing here in Dubai. The reason I made this post is coz I'm coming to Manila on saturday and Im looking for someone to play with. If you have time we can meet up and maybe we can tinker with our little bikes. I'm from Paranaque btw.

Hi Mike, your bike is an old Royal Bike and the parts for it would be very difficult to find, but the tires for it can be replaced with the new ones for 1/5th scale bikes, I have the same bike which I kept on the shelf coz I know this bike would be priceless soon! You can get the tires online or visit 2wheelhobbies.com, this online store specializes on rc bike stuff.

thanks po. ung tires po is DIY lng, heres the pict before and after

before: as in di na pwedeng gamitin ung tires.


cutted foam and mark-up sa wheels


then using a drill and a DIY wheels adaptor
almost done na ung isang side


here is the finish tires with the rims


about naman sa performance okie naman sya, kaso iba padin ung rubber tires. mukhang mas need ko ung heavy tires. kc dahil foam sya malakas mag weegle sya. and di masyado maka balance sa low speed.

those light foam tires are great! And can easily be remedied by wrapping copper wire (appropriate thickness for additional weight) inside the middle of the wheel before mounting the tire. Off course you have to cut a groove inside the tire to accommodate the copper wire. Try it!

Wow, nice RC bike. I have one but I don't think it is a good one. What I have is the Ricky Dirt bike from I thing radio shock. I haven't used it for a while now.

@Mike, JRA is right, you can put weights between rim and tire, I use lead wires in my scratchbuilt bikes when I use foam tires. Just wrap it around the rim until you get the desired weight and then you must glue the tires to the rim and make sure that its trued and balanced. nice work on the tires! I can see you some special skills (diskarte) and I guess you can make your own scratchbuilt bike with this talent.

@Jonzurc, you have a nice bike there! the Rickys are so much fun to drive coz it has a gyro and you can put a brushless system on it or convert it to nitro! although I prefer onroad bikes, The Ricky is a must have for bike freaks.

thanks guys ill try to put lead wires or copper wires on both wheels.

i have this question, about sa steering, try ko baguhin ung steering setup nya, kc dati ang steering nya is weight system, ung batt ang nag swivel from left to right to turn, and the front wheel is in free mode.
then binago ko sya ginawa kong pareho nung mga new version nang motorbikes ung servo nakakabit sa tripleT ng front, nung itinest ko sya unsable sya sobra, as in di na maka balance almost 1 to 2 feet lng tapos tumba na.
any idea or tut kung pano ko gagawin ung steering na ganun? gusto ko sana gumawa ng scratch build na motor cycle.

Hey Mike, akala ko stock pa rin yung steering ng royal mo, na modify mo na pala, anyway, to make it work you must understand first yung theory ng bike steering, mahirap i grasp sa umpisa lalo na kung nasanay ka sa rc cars, sa RC bikes iba yung paraan ng pagliko, subukan kong i explain and let me know kung makukuha mo. Una sa lahat yung bike para maka liko kailangan nitong mag "lean", o matumba sa sides either sa kaliwa o kanan. Pag hinawakan mo yung bike ng nakatayo and then inihiga mo sa kaliwa, yung gulong sa harap ay liliko sa kaliwa and vise versa. Now para mag lean o matumba yung bike sa kaliwa o kanan, kailangan ng "countersteer", Paghinawakan mo naman yung bike sa front wheel ng nakatayo and then iliko mo yung gulong pakaliwa, yung buong bike is matutumba sa kanan and vice versa. It might be difficult to notice pero kung umaandar na yung bike mas makikita mo na baliktad yung effect ng steering ng bike paglumiko sa kaliwa, matutumba sa kanan, paglumiko sa kanan, matutumba sa kaliwa, kaya ang setting nag radio mo dapat naka reverse steering.
Knowing this and through experience, mas maiintindihan mo what I mean.

Now lets get to the modifications, meron din akong Royal pero hindi ko siya minodify sa conventional steering setup, I like it the way it is, pero I have the idea of how to make it steer like the conventional bikes, First of all you have to fix the battery holder and the front end to the chassis. dapat hindi na siya magswivel left to right, lalo na yung pinagkakabitan ng triples, dapat fixed yun sa chassis, walang slop. ang dapat na free ang movement is yung triples lang.

After this check mo yung setup ng steering link mo, I made two diagrams that explains the setup.

Remember this is just to give you the idea, I know kaya mong diskartehan yung modifications try this and let me know kung my problema pa, pagnakuha mo na yung theory and concept ng bikes, pwede ka ng gumawa ng ganito...



Goodluck!

@sir reckracing, sige sir try ko ung sinabi mo. at mukhang alam ko na mali ko sa set up ko. una ung triple T is nag swivel padin sya as in stock pa sya with the springs atached. tapos ung batt holder eh di ko din na fix. kaya pala malikot sya at di stable. ill try your idea and opinion.

ill get back soon after some progress.

thanks a lot
