New Flipsky vx4 IS TRASH (Dangerous!!!) [READ COMPLETELY]

Looks like the new vx4 is some straight garbage. I recently got my new vx4 and was SUPER excited to start using this remote, as I am not a huge fan of the puck, and the vx2 has been a bit flakey. I installed it earlier this week and tested it, it seemed good. Tonight on a 2 hour ride it disconnected on me 4 times, the final time rolled me directly into a busy intersection after a 30mph run. I’m not going to get into the “Maybe’s” and “what if’s”, I don’t care if you have one and it’s been working great for you, good for you. This shouldn’t happen. IF YOU RUN THIS REMOTE, YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE PLAYING RUSSIAN ROULETTE, and I’m going to spam this post to every esk8 group I’m am member of. Looks like I’ll be reluctantly going back to the puck.

Damn… Quite the hot take lmao

Any chance it was loss of signal? Similar to Maytech V2 or other? I have a spot to test mine to see if it has signal issues, but haven’t got in a board quite yet

Sorry buddy, I feel your pain. I’ve either used solid remotes or hot garbage. There isn’t a middle ground for remotes.

Put another remote in the same spot and test it

I was gonna stick my eggmote in a carbon deck too, but I was gonna have the reciever on the outside or something :joy:

The receiver is mounted externally to avoid carbon fiber issues.

Ok, smart folks, I didn’t really want to go into all the details, but i do understand enough about this stuff to know that carbon fiber blocks the signal. I drilled a hole in my enclosure and ran the wires thru, the receiver has it’s own enclosure and is not enclosed in carbon fiber.
