Introducing the FreeSK8 Codex!

The FreeSK8 Codex is the current and future home of all the technical documentation regarding the FreeSK8 Project and the supported hardware components that make up this open source PEV ecosystem.

Each successive product developed under the FreeSK8 banner will be added here so that you can get all your documentation, resources, and questions answered in one place.

Even though we’re just launching this free and open resource, you can already find the following FreeSK8 offerings here:

FreeSK8 Mobile

The FreeSK8 Mobile application is a cross platform solution to monitor and configure VESC based ESCs via Bluetooth. Learn all about it here.

FreeSK8 Robogotchi

The FreeSK8 Robogotchi is an advanced BLE Receiver, Datalogger, and core component of the FreeSK8 System.

The Robogotchi brings Always-On Logging as a core feature with an asynchronous logging integration with our FreeSK8 Mobile App. Think of it like a blackbox flight recorder for your esk8 or LEV.
