Well I won’t be riding Kakashi for a little while.
Simply put the remote is the issue. I went out this evening after work for a ride in a park and again when I started off the board shot out from under me. At least I was on grass this time and was wearing body armour and crash pants this time. I was 100% sure I was really gentle with the remote but thought it could just be me. So I tried again and was off without any issue for maybe 10m and then all of a sudden there was a short burst of acceleration which I handled without an issue. Still at only 50% throttle I was carving some turns and again a tiny burst of acceleration. So I’m looking about for anything that could be causing interference but I’m 200m away from anything.
So I stop, check the connections, test the remote and all seems fine until I try to start again and this time it went full throttle for about 1 second so I ended up on my arse again but this time hurting my shoulder. I’m about 250m from my car so I think I might as well walk back to my car and drove the board back to my car. This is when I started to notice that the remote was the issue as the board would just charge off at full throttle when i was just engaging the remote or would not work at all. Also 1 second lag from the inputs which I never noticed before but then again I never used the board much.
So until my shoulder recovers I’m going to need to find a new remote. Anyone got any recommendations? I have ordered one of the enertion (pre-order) ones but looking at the picture it is the same as the one I currently have and that is a worry. I’m considering a GT2B right now as those seem to be the more reliable but the size is the issue although the price is decent. I have no issues spending money so please suggest away…
Other than that, for 200m I had sketchy fun and can’t wait to be able to ride again.
