Hi there ,

I am new at this so forgive me if I ask something completely silly but I have recently purchased a Bird OKAI ES-400 electronic step (ex-Rental) that was vanadalized. I am in contact with the manufacturer to order parts to make it run again. But I have no idea eaxactly which parts I would to change with original parts to make it run for home use again. Do I need to change the mainboard and motor controller or is there more to it ? I would not like to order unnecessary parts. Any ideas how to handle this project ??

Thx

Cajudos

There is no retail version of the ES400 so you can't just replace the parts with retail ones. They don't exist. Whatever you buy from them is also going to be rental, so you're gonna go back to where you currently are.

There's no retail version, but Okai isn't flashing Bird CFW when they build out the fleet. Aren't the ESCs completely blank or have some basic Okai firmware on the esc for testing purposes where they aren't locked down by an IoT device?

I also emailed Okai a while back to get info for the specific controller model number (not a retail esc). Just waiting to hear back..
