BMW R75 bike goes to RC......

Post by xhelfix »

Hi,

here is a smal look how i let move an old polistil BMW R75 motorbike. Rals said it´s 1:15...that comes true, a bit big, but ok.
I use cheap thing´s that is run´s, and also not runs fast, but it drives 8)
I use an 360degree servo for driving and an smal one for steering. No controler, just the receiver.

Thats the one:

The driver turn a bit on the seat when steering and is fixt a bit with one hand on the handlebar with an thread.
