IDEA

NRF multi-channel Remote

I was thinking to develop a low cost muti-channel remote along with a Rx having multi-functional outputs.
e.g. Remote Tx will have two joysticks modules on board, 6- Analog channels to interface custom hardware and sensors, 6 - digital switches.

Rx module can be configured to output PPM signals, or digital signals. along with 6 available PWM outputs as well. and any output can be mapped to any input at TX side.

What you guys think about this device and scope in market?

Abhi Verma Good plan.
Here is your initial market.

I had got requirement to do these remotes earlier but i couldn’t take up because i was busy.
There is good market outside for these remotes for electric skate boards,

i was only thinking about pcb boards. but for this application i have to make a enclosure too.
what about using my remote in controlling custom drones, robots and other DIY stuff. sometimes people needs more channels to control their functions.

Need to be good on the ergonomics for people to buy them.

We should plan on enclosure as well, Because people need to hold these in hands and operate. Or you can also be a OEM for other remote manufacturers too.

good idea Ravi. I’ll develop the boards and sell them as DIY modules. and if succeed than we can fit them in enclosures. I think this way we will have minimum risk and minimum investment.
your thoughts?

Yes, Get it working and later someone from community can make open source 3D enclosure design after you are done and everyone can 3D print the enclosure themselves after buying module
