I was searching for a suitable remote control for my DIY electric skateboard but I found nothing that was suitable for my needs. Trigger style remote + telemetry readout.
After building and hacking several together, I ended up with this design of my own based on electronics and software from solidgeek (https://github.com/SolidGeek/nRF24-Esk8-Remote/tree/development).
The remote I designed has the following features:

When I have the time I will upload the eagle files for the custom PCB as well as a build guide.
You will need to have intermediate soldering skills to complete the build as well as knowledge on how to program an Arduino and adjust simple code. Of course if you print this yourself you will need to know how to 3D print.
Caveats: Remote is experimental and not an off the shelf product that has undergone proper testing. Build and use at your own risk. Please bench test extensively before actual use. Lastly, I highly recommend protective gear when using the remote just in case something doesn't work (many many things can go wrong)
