Once more to the idling:
on an x5 or real old EUC's with 350-500watt motor on idling only some amps are generated by small batterie packs!
on the powerhorses like ACM, kS18, V3 this is a complete other thing...
they push about 40amps on every idle move through the board...so its quiet normal that this goes to overheat the board ofter some time
There is no problem with idling on the V3!
the guy who brought this "problem"(which is none in my view) up...wanted to demonstrate that he had a problem with braking...
so he made a video of him idling while holding to something, with such an overexcessive force, that the whell collapsed just for a nanosecond and regained power the same second...with that method he wants to demonstrate that "hard" braking is not possible. Gotway answered that on 120!!amps the board cut out for a millisecond...just to protect it did not fry!
so braking is the same as accellerating...there is always the chance to "leanover"...
i am 100-105kg on my v3 and can say that i have had some emergency brakes from higher speed that went all good!
for your hill problems, i can only give you the tip to put your feet a little bit more to the front in general or like said, clamp the wheel with your legs....i for my part have no problems with inclines, but i am near twice your weight and feets 43 size.
It was something going around on the internet at the time about a braking issue ,i did email Jane at Gotway and she confirmed via the technicians that there is no problems with the MSv3 , I was just being honest at the time as i did not know and passed the correct information around accordingly. I love my V3 also.
Not yet I haven't, so you are right to remind me. I play piano for a living so wrist guards are the most essential thing - I am at least wearing those ! While I am in my first few weeks with the Gotway, I am being careful not to do anything too fast or exciting until I get some armour sorted. I plan to get a 1 or 2 piece motorbike suit with integral padding around all the vital areas. Do you think that's a good idea, or do you have any other suggestions ? I do have a stig-style helmet as well, which I plan to wear only when I am doing extra exciting off-road terrain hopping and downhill BMX slaloms
Thank you for your thoughts on this - you are right - I don't need the tilt-back, but I wanted it on while I wasn't sure if my alarms were working. Having lifted the wheel off the ground to check the alarms are working (they are), then I can turn this off, or as you say, down to 30.
of course.... after our presidential vote 2 weeks from today.... no one knows what's going to happen in this country
2 jackasses running for our highest office.... we might all be moving into YOUR house (DO YOU HAVE ANY ROOM?)
