Ordered as a replacement because my old remote quite literally got stolen during a robbery. Ordered with priority and got it super fast. I also fell on the remote right after receiving it, and the spring popped out. Support got back to me in less than a few hours and gave me instructions on how to fix it. Definitely recommend.
Just what I needed to update my board, thanks Backfire!
I got this board back in September of 2021. It is a monster and I use it practically everyday. Just don't drop it down horizontally otherwise the battery will break, but the 180 day warranty does come in very handy.
Awesome company love there boards
Just what I needed. The battery went funny on the original with the board and it was a quick turnaround getting the replacement. Linked perfect and off I went again. Thanks
The remote is great, responsive, and makes me feel confident when riding fast. However, about two years after purchasing, it no longer charges at all.
Easy to grip and hold in whichever hand you prefer. I used to have a Walmart bike mirror on mine so that I could look behind me, while riding, without actually turning my head. Very comfortable feeling, and easily able to adapt to the sensitivity of the throttle.
Crappy battery life - it came with my G3 - never held a charge longer than 20 minutes - since i got it brand new with board - I like the G3 board - but because of this remote not holding a charge - my whole experience is ruined.
I lost my remote to my Backfire Zealot on a Friday and ordered a new remote the next Monday. The new remote arrived quickly, that Wednesday. Well designed remote and very comfortable. Excellent shipping time. Highly recommend over any Hobbywing remote.
quick delivery and it works great. thank you!!
I just got remote it will pair to board but keeps discounting and reconnecting.
Easy to connect, even easier to fix. I took a spill which disconnected the spring internally connected to the throttle. Thought I was going to have to buy a whole new remote but was able to fix it in just a couple minutes, and I haven't had a problem since. Great feel and so comfortable you forget you're holding it. I also managed to creatively attach a bike mirror onto it, so I no longer need to turn my head to look behind me when I'm riding on the roads evading traffic.
Soo I wish I wouldn't have gotten the remote.when it got here I went to turn my board on and yup ...nope .it doesn't turn on unless it's hooked up to the charger the battery says it's full but as soon as I disconnect the charger it turns off it worked when I last used it Soo dumb
The remote does not enter sports mode
I doble click the S/E button and does not do anything
Was told by tech to go to the app to remove speed lock but the app does not work just keeps saying system error
They just keep telling me to pair it again and that does not work
Bought this as an extra because I’ve taken a few bails. Off road these remotes can take a beating, thought I should have extra. They work awesome and are easy to use. 4 stars cause I wish they were better protected (like a case or non point lasting body) and they are super expensive on top of an already super expensive set up (x3). All awesome stuff though, can’t imagine not having this set up in my life.
The R3 remote is superb ergonomic fits great in your hand, I love the rolling wheel for throttle the buttons are easily accessible and with the zealot S you can access standby mode to turn the board and remote on or off
Simultaneously loving both my boards and hardware!
Love my replacement remote, can't tell the difference. These are so comfortable in your hand, love the finger hole.
Throttle is fantastic and smooth. I love the easy access buttons and I love having a switch to control direction of the board. I just wish there was a rubber plug to keep water out of the controller
Needed a replacement after my last one kissed the pavement. It paired with my board in about 10 seconds and even remembered the mileage. It works great!
Easy to use and comfortable grip
Ditto on the left hand remote! That would come in handy... Also, I do not see on any of the manuals how to change the odometer from miles to KM. Figured you guys could just post it somewhere in case anyone else is having the same problem. Remote works great!!
It's a great board run smooth amazingly fast
Feels great in my hand and doesn't feel unatural to hold for long periods of time but I am wondering if y'all are ever gonna make a left handed controller so when I hold it in my left hand I can still see the speed and everything
