QA on this Nitro RC Motorcycle

I’ve owned many RC vehicles, I’d never had an RC until now. The Thunder Ducati 999R Testastretta is a 1:5 ready-to-run nitro motorcycle. It assembled with radio, and even a rider. I’ve had it a short while, but long to address a few specific questions might have.

The answers to questions are based on my general RC as well as my experiences so far with RC.

Is this an RC for beginners or kids or for experienced drivers?

I believe bike is really geared intermediate RC drivers rather beginners — no matter their age. Would you comfortable letting a young attempt to master the art of RC motorcycle with a near $400.00 RC? no rank beginner myself but I hit of curbs, car tires, and other while trying to get the hang of it.

I’ve been racing and both nitro and electric RCs for and this was the toughest RC driving ever come across. are certain skills needed to turns and stay steady on the aways — the bike is forgiving of hesitations and unsteady than four wheel Although I’ve let my 9 year old son my nitro trucks, I’d say nitro bike is definitely not for kids or beginners.

What’s the break-in procedure for this bike?

Even it is a nitro RC, the break-in procedure is different from what used to with my other vehicles. When I broke in my Nitro Rustler 2.5R, the recommendation was to run at half throttle for a few then let off the throttle. It’s not the 4th tank of fuel that you go throttle for a short bit.

After through about five tanks of fuel you then to lean the fuel mixture out there is no increase in optimal

At that point you will go through at least three tanks to reach this bike’s peak level of

After that, putting in a drops of after-burn oil wasn’t too

Is the Ducati nitro bike easy to repair?

Yes and no is really the answer. I had to replace the steering after only running it for two (stripped easily) and ended up the steering servo from my nitro Rustler to keep the fun and not turning it into a stationary piece while tracking parts online or at the hobby

Another annoyance I’ve is that the bike floods easy. Instructions say you don’t to remove the glow plug to the engine but I ended up having to do so to get things going again doing it the way the manual says to do wasn’t working for me.

Apart those issues, the Thunder Ducati nitro bike has some pretty good and kept running well so far.

What hop-ups or are available?

My research so far has only up an optional front disk setup and an inlet that for a better fueling opition.

Is it worth the price?

And. a few pass. Here’s my Second at this Nitro RC bike. more problems (some of my own but I still like the bike.
