Understanding the HobbyKing 1:5 Scale RC Bike
There is nothing about the HobbyKing 1:5 Scale RC Bike that says "performance" and the company, for once, doesn't even claim that it is about speed or power. The HobbyKing 1:5 Scale RC Bike is just about having fun while running an RC bike, which is what makes everything about this model about speed, in a way. The speed we are talking about is speed of going from hobby-store to your home to out on the streets. The bike is Ready-to-Run and it takes just a few seconds to put together.
It is a normal bike so you can, pretty-much, move it straight and back, turning right and left as you go along. It has turn-indicators and stop-lights as well as front-head lamps to add to that regular bike-effect. The front and rear-suspension are regular spring-based suspensions, each designed for regular riding out in your backyard or simply spending some chilled-out time on the track even. There are a couple of side-bars to stop the bike from flopping onto the side when you turn while the battery is a 9.6V NiCd 600MaH battery.
However, the thing that makes the HobbyKing 1:5 Scale RC Bike special is the introduction of a number of unique and exciting features, beginning with the little turbo-boost that comes with the bike's acceleration system. This is just a little way of putting a bit more juice into the motion and giving your HobbyKing 1:5 Scale RC Bike a little bit of oomph in that outdoor run. If that wasn't enough, there is something more that comes in the form of a dynamic rider sitting on top of the bike. Normally, you have a bike that needs to take some form of corrective action, when the bike is turning, to maintain balance. On the HobbyKing 1:5 Scale RC Bike, this action is performed by the rider on the bike in a cool and unique way.
Why should you get a HobbyKing 1:5 Scale RC Bike
When it comes to recreational models in the RC world, there is very little that actually stands out in terms of quality or technology. However, what you have with the HobbyKing 1:5 Scale RC Bike is the unique rider-action as well as the extra turbo-boost. The unique-rider action is extremely realistic and helps the bike maintain balance when turning to the sides. In most bikes, there is a gyro that tends to keep your bike upright. However, when it comes to the lesser-versions of these RC bikes, you might need something else to work the magic.
There are dirt-bikes where the front-wheels turn to the other side as to where the bike is turning. On the HobbyKing 1:5 Scale RC Bike, the counter-movement to allow the bike to stay upright is provided by the rider. Like on a real bike, the rider has to move from side-to-side, compensating for the movement the bike is being asked to make, the HobbyKing 1:5 Scale RC Bike also moves the rider automatically to the opposition side.
Now, HobbyKing realizes that there is nothing related to performance on this bike, which is probably why they added the entire turbo-booster button to the model. The simple and smooth experience gets a little bolt of lightning to light things up and makes everything just that little bit better. What's more, depending on whether you are a right-hander or left-hander, you can change the controller to suit your favoured hand.
Basically, the HobbyKing 1:5 Scale RC Bike is a regular RC bike for regular people. Whether you are in it for the fun or in it for the long haul, you need to start somewhere and the HobbyKing 1:5 Scale RC Bike is the perfect bike to fit into that space. So, whether you are looking for something to gift to someone or just looking for something for your own hobby, the HobbyKing 1:5 Scale RC Bike is the best choice for you!
