This project has been a long time coming for me. I always felt that the DIY esk8 remote scene was lacking. I built a Sparkle remote, I built a FireFly, I modded a nanoX remote but still it was not ideal. The newest Feather remote is promising but still has room for improvement I think.
DIY esk8 has become something different. We are power users, enthusiasts, people that want to go faster and farther. Why shouldn’t our boards and remotes have it all? A big battery, intelligent information displays, and the most up-to-date connectors (usb c).
With that in mind, I set out to build this remote. It features an ARM soc, an 18650 battery, and USB type C. I took my first test ride today so I can final say it works.
I am hoping to refine it and create a platform to build different styles of remote. Ones with triggers, ones with bigger screens, etc.
When I have thoroughly tested the remote, i will release all the information necessary to build your own.
Questions and comments are always welcome. Cheers Esk8ers
