A very strange and scary incident happened to me yesterday. After switching off my remote, the board suddenly got going at full speed. Fortunately, nothing bad happened. It flipped over after going some 5 meters. I then switched the remote on again and the board immediately stopped.
I often switch off my remote before switching off the board. I must have done it like 100 times before and nothing bad has ever happened… until yesterday. I’m pretty scared to ride the board again until I investigate and ideally fix the problem. I don’t like the idea that the same thing might happen while I’m riding. The board is an eMTB with 4.5 kW of power and it can easily go 50 kph.
Any ideas what might have happened? I haven’t been able to reproduce the problem since the incident. I have two ESCapes and this remote from HobbyKing. It looks as though the receiver went crazy after losing the connection with the transmitter and instead of signalling neutral as it normally does in failsafe it signalled full throttle instead. Could that be right?
