Can it be true? It appears the VMX450 rc bike is resurrected from the ashes Venom/Atomik left behind. The story goes when Atomik abandoned(!) production of the VMX450 / MM450 bikes the tooling was left behind in China. An unknown company must have acquired everything to start back making the VMX450. The VMX450 originally was equipped with a mechanical gyro in the back wheel and released a separate e-gyro upgrade kit just before the bike was rebranded as the MM450. The good news with this new production of the VMX450 is it appears to come with the important upgraded e-gyro. The kit is NOT ready-to-run like the original – no motor, no radio system, no e-gyro controller. Only a steering servo comes with kit for electronics. To control the e-gyro, a separate gyro esc and servo tester can be used as described in a previous article I wrote.
