  1. My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    I know I really wish I had the wheel longer to see if the one spin-out was a fluke. I only have a sample of two
  2. New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    This is what enthusiasts (Inmotion employees) design, and then the marketing department gets a hold of it and we get the V10
  3. New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    OMG, do you know how many of these you'd sell if it was made. This has got to be the coolest look EUC that I've ever seen! WOW.
  4. My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    My intent was to do more controlled tests (hold the wheel and lean it over), but it failed before I got a chance. But I remember doing one early on and it turned off much later than my Tesla. So it didn't surprise me when it keep spinning in the grass as you see in the video.

    The Tesla is noticeably faster though. You don't have to think and you're going 25-mph with the Tesla. You working the V10F to ride in the low 20's. I'm no motor geek, but maybe Inmotion designed this motor for more torque than speed, in which case they succeeded.

    Yeah, I doubt my riding broke the wheel. The rubber pedal covering has got to go. But no wheel is perfect, and this is easily corrected. Part IV will show the technical aspects of the trail riding Maybe it's a toss up between the KS14S and this wheel for trail riding. But as a general purpose wheel I would certainly pick the V10F over the KS14S even though I would be giving up the great trolley handle of the 14S. I do think the V10F trolley handle would be a lot more serviceable if it wasn't so incredibly loose. It really needs to be firm with a tight pivoting mechanism. It doesn't match the quality of the rest of the wheel.

    I take that as a no. You would be long long gone by the time any police responded to a rare complain. In the vast majority of cases, the average person doesn't place our quiet EUCs in the same category as a 'motorized vehicle'.

    Here's where the wheel overheats
  10. My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    The wheel started with 100% charge. The mountain trail riding was ~15-miles which brought it down to 65%. The charger managed to charge the wheel up to 85% at night, but died before it could complete the charge. The wheel had been dropped shipped to me from an event that they had in Seattle I think. It didn't come directly from Inmotion. I think they only have a few wheels and they are shipping them to 'the next event' after every weekend. What's interesting to me is a whole slew of "production" wheels are going to customers as we speak, yet there's no released App, and Inmotion has no production wheels to show off at their events. Let's hope the production wheels are solid.

    Do you see many police on the trails issuing tickets, I ask sarcastically
  12. My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    Yes, I tried various combinations of short & long presses
  13. My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    In this case I guess it's a good thing I didn't know how Inmotion wheels turn on. I thought maybe it was a self-test feature run every time the wheel is turned on. No, WheelLog would not connect
  14. My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    The battery level was ~85% the last I checked. No smoke, just flashing red LEDs. The wheel had been showing strange power-on behavior. Since this is my first Inmotion wheel I thought it was normal, but apparently not. I always had to press the power button twice to get the wheel to stay turned on. The first press would cause the wheel to turn on for ~5 seconds, then it would turn off. The second power button press would be the keeper
