If it starts smoking, there's only one right thing to do - throw it out. If it started smoking, it means thermal runaway has started, and it won't get any better. Burning li-ion batteries produce deadly smoke, you may lose consciousness in seconds in that tight space. If you try to land asap, you may find you have to bail out anyway at too low altitude for parachute to work.
These things are like grenades.
So, trying to land if there's already smoke is like having a box with ammunition and it starts smoking... bad idea to waste any second.
Fires in li-ion batteries do not necessarily start only when charging.
I don't even have a v8f yet Sounds like you DIDN'T tie your feet down. I'm thinking it will make it more stable, but no clue. I may try, but not sure. People tie down their feet with ice skates, roller blades, and snowboards for more control. I was just wondering...
MSX 84v - Back for a repost!! Did a complete makeover of the MSX. 84v 1600wh, 1400 miles, new seat, new trolley and side pads, mudguard. taken apart, waxed, cleaned and inspected. Runs like a top! Selling for $1100. Stand included.. email me for pics. firstname.lastname@example.org or go to my FB page, Ron Lion,
LOL! So because this is an aerobatic airplane I have one emergency pull handle that jettisons the door. The problem would be releasing my 5 point harness, turning around, releasing it from the back seat, and getting it out the door without falling out myself. In the event that I smelled smoke, id likely try to land as fast as possible, and get on the ground in not more than a few min. Ideally it wouldn't go nuclear on me before that. HAH! Honestly though, the only time these things go kapow is if they get overcharged. I feel quite safe with it strapped in the back. It can't move, and nothing can touch the power button... Safer than having a airsick passenger back there.
@ Math is hard, Hello, Welcome to the forum ,
The math does not work out on this question. You have a V8F. ........
No. Tying your feet down would not be a good idea. Anyone riding faster than 30 mph will likely crash at some point and you don't want to be tied to your wheel when you do.
Some people use thick pads that somewhat trap your feet and legs. As you get better wheel control should get better and you feet should not leave the pedals as easy.
I have a ninebotone c+.
2300 miles at 2 1/2 years.
I wouldnt send it off or even get too worried just yet.
Talk to me just a bit. Give more details.
For instance: the BOTTOM most part of the rings can NOT be blinking green. The last bottom 2 are Red Only and the 2 further up are both Yellow.
Were you actually ON it when it quit?
Did you fall over?
Did you accelerate quickly or hit something?
Was it still not operational the next day?
Great answer, thanks! I guess even on your plane if you keep it at arm's reach, you can smash the side window and push the smoking hoverwheel out. It won't hit the wing or the horizontal stabilizer - it'll fall like a brick.
But if you ever have to use your parachute (I certainly hope this will never happen) not because of the wheel, you might save it by clipping it to your harness with a carabiner and bailing out!
Well Aneta, sorry i have to say that but i‘m really starting to get pissed off when i read the word Hoverwheel.
That word is just garbage and i will never ever call my wheel a bloody Hoverwheel.
And i don’t think anybody else will, so just stop the cheap commercial and be done with it.
Sorry had to let some pressure out.
