Where can this remote be purchased?

Very nice :+1:
Greetings Frank

looks interesting.
Is it a prototype or already possible to order?
How much is it?

The buttons are badly positioned! You might switch off the remote while trying to use the cruise control :rofl:

I assume you would have to hold it down for some seconds to switch on/off, whereas you would push + - in pulses. The question is wheter you can reach the buttons with your thumb to operate it with one hand.

This product will be available soon on alibaba, It is possible to order next week and we produced 100 sets this time . The price is around $160.

@sat_be
you can reach the buttons with your thumb ,we have tested. :grinning:

The picture mentions direction (forward and backwards). Does the remote have reverse? It doesn’t look like it does.

@crutch Hold button “-” to change forward or backward, throttle and receiver output forward or reverse signal

Interesting… How does the receiver look? External antenna possible?

How is the waterproofing done in the remote, can you show us a photo?

@JvdZ This version of receiver has no external antenna.
Epoxy resin is used for waterproofing.

Hi qdbluemind, an external antenna is very useful for efoil application, many times people run an antenna up to the nose of the board for better reception.

Is the FW on the remote (or RX) upgradeable?

How many throttle steps are there?

@brycej
This version does not have an external antenna,We will add an external antenna in the next version.
Current version does not support upgrade,next version will be added.
This control has 80 throttle steps and screen displays 0 to 100%.
Cruise increase and decrease with 10%.

waterproof remote controller underwater test.

Can you give some details? How is it connected to vesc? Uart?

@Toto44
If you use VESC, Uart is ok(rx-tx, tx-rx), the remote control can send throttle or read vol, current ,rpm , etc from VESC.

If you use common ESC, you can use PWM to control motor, meanwhile, you can get battery voltage with pin AD with max voltage of 60V.

Receiver working voltage: 3.3-5v
