The Fundamentals / How To Operate





The RFLX Remote’s Ride Trigger button is a safety feature of the M1. The Manta Drive will not spin if the Ride Trigger is NOT depressed. To move the M1 Forward: Press & hold the Ride Trigger, then push forward on the Throttle Control (away from your body). You’re M1 will now move forward and continue to accelerate as long as you have the Ride Trigger & Throttle pushed forward.

To move the M1 in Reverse:

Press & hold the Ride Trigger, then pull the Throttle Control backwards (toward your body). Your M1 will now move in reverse and continue to accelerate as long as you have the Ride Trigger & Throttle pulled back.

To Brake the M1: 

Press & hold the Ride Trigger, then pull the Throttle Control in the opposite direction of travel. For example, if you’re moving forward, you can brake by pulling the throttle towards your body while holding the ride trigger. If you’re moving forward, pull back on the Throttle Control, this will cause the M1 to brake.


The Inboard M1 has different riding modes that can be easily accessed. We built the riding modes to accommodate different levels of rider experience. All M1’s ship in Beginner mode, to give everyone the easiest learning curve. You can easily change the M1 through the RFLX Remote of the Inboard Vision Mobile App.

NOTE: In order to change modes, the M1 must NOT be moving.
