On 5th of July I bought some components from Flipsky. I purchased their FSESC 6.6, VX1 remote and bullet connectors. I recently got around to putting the board together and while messing with the settings in the VESC tool and letting the remote run for a while I noticed it dropped charge pretty quickly. It would lose around 2 bars in less than an hour of riding. I opened the remote up with intent to find the dimensions of a battery I could fit in there as an upgrade. I found a 500mAh battery inside. I posted the battery picture on a Discord server and one of the members said his remote came stock with a 850mAh battery. That’s a pretty drastic difference IMO. A 70% capacity difference to be exact. The funniest thing is we ordered 3 days apart from each other.
Interesting. I have a “new” one coming next week from a Builders member, and I’m definitely curious now. As long as it’s better than the last Enertion Nano-x batteries that weren’t even used and never held a charge, I’ll be happy.
And it’s definitely interesting. I want to find out what others have been getting. I’ve already messaged Flipsky about it and waiting for a response. Also my 850mAh replacement is on it’s way. It was only $10 but that’s additional $10 to $45 you are already paying for it.
If everything they made was garbage, they would have ran out of business pretty fast. A lot of negative reviews on the forum will just increase the likeliness of yours being a bad sample, or a better product for the same amount of money, but at the end if a product works well for someone, it’s nice for them!
e.g there has been so many issues with the raptor, despite it being still a good board.
