This is the Kyosho Mini-Z Moto Racer ReadySet Motorcycle with an included red Yamaha YZR-M1 body. The popular Kyosho Moto GP machine has been shrunk down to a 1:18 scale model that will fit in the palm of your hand! R/C motorcycles are naturally unstable at low speeds, and because of this it is not easy for beginners to get used to driving a two wheeled vehicle. Kyosho has developed sophisticated technologies that are found in the MINI-Z Moto Racer to overcome this problem, minimizing the learning curve while maintaining the fun of control. Now, anyone can now jump into this genre and experience the thrill of driving an R/C motorcycle. The YAMAHA YZR-M1 is now under your control, ready to battle with your friends!
The innovative E-gyro system equipped within the rear wheel keeps the bike going straight even running at a super slow speed, while allowing quick leaning action at a high speed. With the digital proportional system for steering and throttle, you can control the bike as if you are riding on it! No special technique is required to drive it, if you are an experienced R/C car driver, you’ll only need a small amount of practice to get used to it. Even if the bike falls down, the support bars hold the bike at a certain angle and help to upright the bike when throttle is applied. Equipped with a high power coreless drive motor, lightweight 3.7V 120mAh LiPo battery, and ten ball bearings, the MINI-Z Moto Racer can accelerate up to approximately 12 MPH (20km/h) without stress and operate for up to 10-minutes per charge! Thanks to the E-gyro system, the Mini-Z Moto Racer can run virtually on any on-road surfaces such as needle punched carpets, urethane tracks, tile, and smoothly paved asphalt.
- E-Gyro: A flywheel spinning in the rear wheel driven by a dedicated brushless motor greatly increases the stability of the bike especially at slow speeds. The spinning RPM of the E-gyro can be configured from the transmitter independently from high and low throttle input. The E-gyro effect (RPM) can be controlled by turning a knob on the transmitter you can adjust for the best balance between stability and agility while you are driving the bike.
- FHSS 2.4GHz: The KT-19 transmitter uses the Frequency Hopping Spectrum System, which is considered to be more resistant to interference or lockout when the 2.4GHz frequency ban is congested. The gyro RPM can be controlled inversely proportional to the throttle input, so the E-gyro can spin faster when throttle is off and slower when throttle is wide open.
- Caster Angle: You can fine tune the caster angle and adjust the cornering characteristics of the motorcycle to match your driving style.
- F/R Suspension: Coil springs are integrated in the front fork and rear swing arm suspension system providing great road handling performance.
- LiPo Charger: Included is a USB LiPo battery charger. The charger charges a LiPo battery in 20 to 60 minutes. It can either be powered by the KT-19 transmitter or any USB power supply currently available. The KT-19 transmitter can charge LiPo batteries 3 to 5 times with a set of alkaline batteries and the charger indicates the remaining capacity of the transmitter batteries. When using a powerful USB power source, the charger can charge two LiPo batteries simultaneously.
- Smooth: The Mini Z Moto is equipped with a full ball bearing drive train, giving you the most efficient drive train possible.
- More Friends: There are advantages to using the latest 2.4GHz technology like not having to worry about frequencies, radio hits and not being able to race with your friends. The FHSS system allows you to run up to 40 bikes simultaneously.
