Radio controlled models have come a long way in the last few years, airplane models are completely unbelievable, but this Thunder Tiger RC motorcycle takes the 2 wheel world to a much higher level than I’m used to seeing and from the reactions to this model, even the RC crowd thinks it’s pretty cool.
Carbon fiber is the primary construction material, 4mm for the forks, 2mm for the frame. The suspension detail and construction appear to be very high quality. Plans call for various interchangeable swingarms in the future to adjust wheelbase. There’s a slipper clutch to prevent unwanted wheelies, the front disc is full floating and adjustment points for the shocks can be adjusted to modify damping characteristics.
The rider and body work are one piece so you can’t get that weird riderless motorcycle look if the rider were to come off.
Whether or not you follow the radio controlled model world, you have to appreciate the design and engineering that went into this little racer. I think it’s pretty neat.
Thanks for the tip, Bob!
