2.4Ghz Mini Remote Control Connectivity/Reliability

Post by mfkubak » Apr 15 2016 7:57am

Hello,

For those of you with the 2.4Ghz mini remote control,how do you like it? Have you had a single connection drop out?
I'm getting fairly tired of struggling to control my nunchuck and wiiceiver when it decides to drop connection and go full speed from under my feet. I can't risk such a thing any longer.
Please share any information you can.

Thanks for reading,
Matt

Hi There

I have two of those mini remotes, one bought from DIY (http://diyelectricskateboard.com/produc ... ontroller/) and one bought off Ali Express.
Both work very well for me and I can't say I have ever noticed a connection drop. Uses standard AA batteries and they last a few weeks at least for me.
Personally cannot fault them at all and would recommend them.

Yup, I got mine for Aliexpress and it's been great over the last few months, not a problem, plug and play, all good for me.

Thanks for the responses. I'm really happy to hear that you both have had no connection issues.
Did the one from Ali Express take long to get done?
Has anyone taken off the wheel on the side? Does it interfere with the comfort of holding the remote?

What ESC do you guys use on your boards?

Thanks again,
Matt

I was amazed, it got here (UK) in just a few days, a week at most.
Used it with VESC on both boards but and have just changed one board to EZRUN MAx6 but have not ridden it yet as raining today.

I was hoping to hear that!
Please update on how it runs on the EZRUN. I plan to use it with Torque boards 6S ESC.

Kinda straying away from the topic, but is anyone familiar with BMS's?
