I am in the proses of building a efoil and have got all the stuff i need (motor vesc batteries etc) but i need a remote I have been reading around on this forum and the three im looking at are the new Flipsky VX3, the maytech ip67 waterproof esurf and esk8, and the other maytech remote the ip66 water resistant esk8 remote. if i were to buy any of these i would go in and check how water proof they are and add silicone if needed. With the 3rd remote the ip66 water resistant one i would definitely have to do water proofing!
what are your opinions.
It’s all related to budget and effort
Take a look at the Volt-efoil remote… It is awesome and has full bright display even in sunlight! Shows you all data supplied by vesc…
Electric Paddle Board
Excellent waterproof performance: By using magnetic encoder, waterproof screen and wireless charging, the protection level of remote controller IP68 is realized
Multi-parameter display: Speed, Direction, Battery status, Bluetooth and GPS signal status, ESC temperature, motor rpm, Cruise status, and Throttle
Multi-protocol support: VESC Communicat…
How much, and is it available now?
Next week, it will be available.
When’s the manta volt remote available, and price?
Thx for the suggestion! I had looked at the Bluemind, but it still isn’t available. Right now I’m leaning towards the Erayfoil remote.
Edit. I just saw your post about it being available next week! Might be a better option idk
I contacted the German reseller
efoilshop.de and they said the Volt Remote V2 will be available next month for 389€ (on the Volt Website it says June 2022 and no price).
Hope that helps making a decision.
I think this remote is good because you don’t need some metr device extra.
This remote had a build in logging functionality like metr.
two guys already forgot…
Use FeRo-Preorder2022 for 5% off
@nice2cu for sharing the Info It looks similar to the Volt Remote V2, but 100€ cheaper.
Sounds like a very good remote, but I personally will wait for some user feedback.
You will get the feedback in some weeks.
I bought one
Hey guys! Any news for alternative controls for DIY eFoil? You mentioned the Volt Remot, where can I find it for purchase? Does it communicate with VESC?
If you already build the eFoil yourself, why not also build the remote yourself?
I would like to share the project I have been working on the last few monts:
A fully 3D printed remote for eFoil and eSkate, called the BREmote.
My design philosophy is simple: Only basic features, reliable, open source, as little external parts as possible, and the parts that can’t be 3D printed should be easily obtainable and affordable.
At 10pcs. each, the remote costs around 35$/€ (excluding the 3D printed parts)
All mechanical parts 3D printed (even the spring…
