Just bought an motorcycle - Anyone else have one?

Post  Iceman on Thu Jun 10, 2010 12:25 am

So I just bought a Venom GPV-1 electric RC motorcycle, and was wondering if anyone else in this area was into RC bikes?

Type in gpv-1 into youtube, theres a bunch of pretty cool race videos posted up.

Also if anyone could recommend any good parking lots near HVCC that are large and in good shape?

Thanks alot!

I'd like to get a bike sometime. They look really cool from the videos I've seen. Never seen one run in person though. Not sure about parking lots out that way though. Albany Memorial Hospital has a huge one that's empty on the weekends. On the weekdays after 5:00 it's almost empty. I'd do speed runs out there often.

Home Depot and Target near Walmart both have lighted smooth parking lots on Rt. 4 going from HVCC towards I90. on right hand side before 90.

Yeah Im brand new to RC stuff, so I didnt think nitro would be a good start.

Once you get things worked out, let me know and you can come over to the parking lot at my building and rip around with me.

ICEMAN, I will assume U have had luck driving it better with a lot more open space rather than in the hallway @ Sci-Ho shop ?
