I just picked up this board for $50 hoping the batteries were at least good, but the ol SLA's registered 0 volts. It also did not come with the controller but I knew that going into the deal. What can I say, it looked like a fun project!
My plan for the batteries is a pair of ebay 18650 packs for 36 volt 8.8ah with room to spare in the battery case:
I have looked into the RC transmitter route like the GT2:

And I contacted Torqueboards to see if they had any experience with my board syncing with their handheld unit, but a lass named Mary said they did not know. Very cool to be able to chat online with tech support, I would love to purchase the trigger from them.
The main issue I see is the amount of wires going into the receiver unit on the EMAD. It runs 4 white wires and one red from the receiver case.
I have attached some pics, please help! I am going camping at the beach in 2 weeks and would love to have this going by then.
