Electric skateboards are very easy to use. You stand on it just like you would on a traditional skateboard. The only difference is that they have electric motors powered by a handheld remote control.
We'll take a closer look at electric skateboard remote controls to understand how they operate, where to find a replacement if you have a problem with your remote, and learn about some of the safety precautions you must pay attention to.
What is an e-board remote control?
Electric skateboards are all the rage right now because they offer an innovative, fast and affordable way to get local transportation. However, to make this feasible, we must rely on ergonomic, high-quality, full-featured remote controls.
The remote can help control the board's acceleration and braking as your feet tilt the board from side to side for turning.
The Veymax skateboard has a speed range of 7~28 mph, and holding the remote control in your hand helps you ride the Electric Skateboard with ease and confidence. Skateboarding also becomes safer when you know you can hit the brakes at any time and the board will stop when you need it to.
How does the electric skateboard remote control work?
An e-skateboard remote control consists of several key components that work together to operate the skateboard smoothly. These components include:
Processor: There is a processor inside the electric skateboard that acts as a control center. It connects the battery, motor and electronic speed controller (ESC), which regulates speed and acceleration.
Electronic Speed Controller (ESC): The ESC interprets the signal from the remote control and converts it into motor action. It monitors the position of the on-board throttle and allows the rider to accelerate, decelerate and brake via the remote's buttons or thumbwheel.
Bluetooth transmitter and receiver: Both the remote control and the ESC have Bluetooth modules that enable wireless communication between the two. These modules exchange information quickly, ensuring real-time response. In some cases, the remote can also display useful data such as speed, distance, and battery level.
