Hi, I am trying to find a cheap & reliable wireless remote controller for VESC. Any recommendations? Thank you
Maytech is okay. Vx2 is okay. But cheap, I don’t know much
Hoyt puck. I prefer the PPB version by derelictrobotindustries.com
The Mini Remote is cheap and pretty good.
What he said.
Agreed. I had several and mini, despite how it looks, is best
I had to literally send the spintend remote through the washing machine to kill it and it was fine for a few hours before glitching and not fully booting.
After you machine wash remote cut the battery lead I learned.
Thank you for the link. Those are all sold out and the tag price of $250+ is pretty high…
Ordering the Vx2. Do you find it Same/Less/ More reliable than the wired ones? I will be riding up to 20 miles an hour. I have only used wired ones in the past.
vx1 seems reliable but keep it away from phones. I found cheap phones to interfere with the radio. Also easily blocked by flesh/cf
vx1 or vx2? I am assuming they both are compatible with Vesc
They are only 150. You were looking at the osrr which is next level remote
I have had nothing but problems with the vx1. Almost got me killed.
Good to know about vx1 reliability. I need to get one quickly for testing for now. Looked at the osrr good stuff!
Same but with the torqueboard mini.
I changed my remote to the hoyt puck. So I can’t really answer that in all honesty.
I just ordered hoyt Puck PCB for testing. Thanks for the recommendation!
If you don’t mind trigger. The mini is probably the most reliable remote I have ever used.
You had problems with the mini for real?
Unfortunately yes. I was going 35mph and was going for a turn and was trying to slow down, but the remote registered my input as “pushing the gas” and not “pulling the brakes”.
Let’s just say I now know what a concussion is and how it feels.
This was very frequent and then it acts like the battery is drained, even though the batteries are fresh and brand new (fully charged).
I still have the dang thing.
