Jason, I think you made a solid choice with the remote. The signal issues - at least for me - seem to all be related to the lid. Outside of that, YES, I am definitely NOT used to the torque output. This is my first electric skateboard. Perhaps that’s the crux of the issue, but for me I’d like something that delivered the initial power more softly but ramps up to full power. This is not because I don’t like the power or don’t want to accelerate. Rather, it’s because I don’t ALWAYS want to go fast. I’d love to get the cruise control to work at something close to a steady 8mph so I just cruise & carve, but I simply can’t do that.
Going back to my first statement, this isn’t a criticism about the remote. I think it’s something that can be handled in software, either by changing the drive mode, or by modifying the sensitivity of the remote to something less linear. I plan to play around with those settings and see if I can get it more to where I like it.
