So I have been wanting a more premium remote with dual throttle since seeing evolves R2. This netted in my trying the original maytech waterproof remote. I like others had more than a few signal drops with the old remote set up (only in high interference areas like the west side bike path in NYC and a few intersections in NYC). This is a major issue obviously. I almost crashed above 20 twice and came off at low speed once.
However, when it did work it was the best feeling remote I’ve ever used. Since it’s got sooo much more throw and two throttles I noticed I could be more precise with my throttling/braking through corners etc. equating to a more fun esk8 experience.
I personally pushed Elieen and the maytech crew to do better. I’m sure I’m not the only one. This has resulted in a revised interface for screen and a new receiver.
I’ll do some testing but my question to the forum is what do you all think the likelihood is that this receiver is better?
I’m not a wiz when it comes to the remote signal portion of DIY esk8, from what I understand this receiver can handled many more signals making it a more stable connection somehow.
Pics of the new guy:
I’ll update this thread with testing updates, but figured I’d ask the lords or tech for their thoughts as well. It’s going on my Commuter board with a Unity first since it’s my lowest powered board so if all goes wrong I hopefully won’t be going too fast.
