This new Maytech Remote is the last addition to the Hellboy build. I liked the Evolve remote, but it was rather proprietary, and could not be used with FOCBOX Unity and a custom 12S4P battery. The Maytech works great with Unity, and has a big solid feel compared to the similar Evolve R2. The trigger works well with gloves, and the separate brake prevents accidents.
One thing to be aware of is that you need to pull BOTH the trigger and brake buttons during the Unity calibration process. The trigger calibrates the + side and the brake the - side of the range.
Since the Maytech has a battery meter it provides the last feature that I wanted. I don’t have to cut up the deck. This preserves the clean appearance of the board.
Push to start works great, be aware that you need to push and then let the trigger go to zero. Squeeze a few times and the battery indicator will light up letting you know that the board is on. I think this is a safety feature of push to start. The Unity doesn’t let you start with positive throttle.
This remote is very smooth and has a lot of travel in both the trigger and the brake. I seldom go above 50% on the trigger unless climbing intense hills. But there is still plenty of room. I have found myself riding faster and with more confidence with this remote. It is also waterproof and has a wireless charger.
