Advice on a maxfind A board- cannot get remote to pair

I bought an old maxfind A dual motor board without a charger or remote. It has turned into a money pit. I replaced battery, got a charger, and maxfind has sent me 3 newer remotes that didn’t work. I don’t think they were compatible with the older board. I have tried generic remotes off amazon. I have tried to hack it by pairing it with my phone and using an e skate app. The phone detected it but wouldn’t pair. Any tips on getting this thing to run? Thanks in advance!

How are you trying to pair them ? Tell step by step :metal:


(sounds like a stolen board to me)


Tried several ways. Hold down power button on board until it flashes blue, then attempt to pair remotes in a variety of ways. Never works.

Guy swore up and down that he just lost the remote. Was posted on offerup and very public sites. I feel like I got ripped off, since I’m $300 in with a non working board. At least i have other toys.

and apparently the charger lol.

that’s not something hindering people from selling stolen goods.

There is a little button I believe on top of the ESC. If you pull the ESC case There’s a way to reset it. I think.

I found the reset button. I held it down while it was off, and on. Result is the same. Can’t get it to pair with new remotes. I think the remotes are wrong, and it is next to impossible to find the old remote. Even maxfind doesn’t have it.

Here is a link to what I’m working with

Follow up questions: Do you know of any generic remotes that might work, or an inexpensive esc that can work on this dual motor setup? I have 4 nonpairing remotes now… i’d like to get this thing running one way or another. Thanks!

For sure man any dual esc will run it. (Not any) but if your just budget boarding, just spend 60 bucks on Amazon and it’ll work.
