Meepo ESCs and Remotes: A Quick Guide

Curious about Meepo ESCs and remotes? Let’s start with a quick explanation of how ESCs and remotes work hand in hand to get your skateboard going...
Every electric skateboard has two components that work together - the ESC (electronic speed controller) and the remote. The ESC is a small box inside the skateboard that receives messages from the remote control (that you press) and relays them to the skateboard.

The remote looks a little like a TV remote and is made to fit your hand comfortably as you ride. Meepo uses a couple of different remotes.

Electric skateboard ESCs (inside the board) need to communicate with your remote, so the remote you use depends on the ESC built into your board. Let’s have a look at Meepo electric skateboards, the ESC & remote details, and give you all the information you need to know.

First is our Hobbywing ESC, the standard ESC for City Rider, Mini 2, and Classic 2.

The Hobbywing ESC pairs with the Classic and NR (B) remote. What’s the difference between the Classic and NR (B)? The Classic is in the rounded ergonomic design and has no flashlight, while the NR (B) comes with a flashlight standard and is more squarish. The NR (B) remote comes standard with electric skateboards equipped with the Hobbywing ESC.

Our next model is the LingYi ESC, also known as V3 ESC, the standard ESC on Meepo V3 Standard, V3 ER, Mini 2 ER, and NLS Pro.

While these models come with the MR remote standard in the box, they will also work with the V2, and NR (A) remotes. The MR remote comes with a convenient digital interface and is the standard remote for our most popular electric skateboard model, the formidable V3. The digital features make this electric skateboard remote a popular choice, even though it does not have a flashlight built-in like the NR remotes.

Meepo Campus has its own ESC called Meepo Campus ESC and it can pair with the MR, V2 and NR (A) remote. The remote you will receive on purchase is the NR (A) remote. This is a popular design featuring a built-in flashlight.

Meepo’s R & D team has built a robust ESC for Meepo’s proprietary all-wheel-drive electric skateboard - Meepo AWD ESC. This uniquely designed ESC has been customized for Meepo’s all-wheel-drive skateboard and pairs only with the NR (AWD) remote.

Whether you’re buying an electric skateboard for the first time or buying spare parts for your 10th board making sure that you have the proper ESC and remote pairing is always something to make sure to get right. If you end up with the wrong remote, it just won’t work. Happy skating!

Is there a way to adjust the sensitivity? i know there are different modes but there is a dead zone in my controller. When I turn the wheel on the remote, it takes about 20% of the allowance that wheel can move until the board responds regardless of the mode. Is this true for anybody else? Does anybody know how to adjust so it is more gradual?

This is an update to my previous post. After using the remote for quite a while now I have grown to like it more than before. It is still hard to read when riding in the sun, but I find that I never really need to look at it much, especially after you get to know the settings.

I have a Meepo board its a few months old and remote will not fully connect, kind of scary when you have no brakes at 15+ or it takes off quicker than expected when trying to connect. Is there a fix?

I think i just ordered the wrong remote. I orded the MR screen remote. Will it work with my mini 2 er that i ordered in mid july??..😑

I just got the new V3 – ER version. I love the new ESC, but really don’t like the new MR screen remote. First thing is that it is really hard to see. I can’t just look at the tiny screen and see what level I am on. My eyes are far from perfect so I really miss the line of LEDs to let you know what level you are set to. I could see those lights while riding no problem, even in direct sunlight. The second problem is that the button that says reverse is actually the level select button. I have not yet figured out how to put it in reverse. No problems there….I HAVE NO NEED TO EVER USE REVERSE. You can actually just turn the board around when you want to go the opposite way. Anyway I need a better remote. Please send me a better one and I might keep buying your boards. I have 3 so far. My friend just picked up a Wowgo board and it looked just like a NLS Pro and was about the same price. Might have to check one out if Meepo doesn’t fix that new remote. For real!!!!

I just received the NLS Pro. According to the text up top, the MR remote should be in the package. I only got the NR remote. How do I get the MR remote?

My Son’s NLS came with NR Remote but The ESC is no longer working and unfortunately it’s out of warrantee!

So what ESC is best to replace the defective unit, can he upgrade it?

Let me know my son’s wanting to get back out there and ride again-
Thank You,

Gerald Weber
