RC Bikes

The first 1:5th scale electric bike at club level was on show at the weekend. The bike was bought for fun when the saloon car is having a brake between the club championship rounds. The bikes are new to the club so we are starting at the very beginning with regards to setting them up. Simple things like why does the bike not turn like a car, why does the fairing and crash bars keep hitting the ground when you lean it over. The next few months we hope to keep you up to date with the progress on just the basic set-up.

"The first 2 bikes at the club"

This is what happens when you get it wrong!!!

Thunder Tiger FM-1e

"Hey, do they make remote-control motorcycles?" You're bound to hear that question once you chat with the inevitable bunch of guys who stop by the race track to check out the car you're running. The short answer is "yes," but for too long, bikes haven't really been a viable part of the RC scene.

This is where Thunder Tiger comes in with its  FM-1e electric motor-cycle. The aluminium bike is patterned closely on the  Nuova Faor design, but unlike SF501, the FM-1e is clad in Yamaha R1-style bodywork with a realistic-looking vinyl rider at the controls, and it has been fully assembled and painted for you by Thunder Tiger. To complete the bike, you'll have to add a motor, battery, ESC and radio, but no special equipment is required; off-the-shelf, regular-size gear drops right in thanks to the bike's large 1/5-scale proportions. If any kit can take motorcycles into the mainstream, the FM-1e looks like the one.
