    Funny they call a big 18 incher "V11". Doesn't sound much different from "V10", but it is! Can't praise that headlight enough! Finally someone understands having lights is not just a bullet point on a spec sheet, but they need to be actually fully meaningful and fully useful if you want to rely on them in real life! Looks like Inmotion has a real game changer coming! Didn't expect that! I sure hope this lights a fire under KS and GW's asses.

    Since @Victor Solovjov suggested clarification of the items on the main screen in the EUC World FAQ thread, here goes. Think of it as a teaser of the EUCW documention, which should be available soon enough. @Seba, you might want to check this out to make sure I got everything right 1. Distance of current trip. Can be set to kilometers or miles. 2. Current speed (as reported by the EUC). Can be set to km/h or mph 3. Current battery level % 4. Battery level indicator dial: Visually indicates battery percentage. The dial indicates the current battery level, while the dots indicate the maximum and minimum battery levels of the current trip. 5. EUC temperature: Can be set to ºC or ºF. 6. Temperature indicator dial. Visually indicates the EUC temperature. The dots indicate the maximum and minimum temperatures attained during the current trip. 7. Speed indicator dial: Visually indicates the current speed (relative to the maximum speed set for the dial, which can be configured in the settings menu). The dots on the dial indicate, in ascending order, average speed, average speed in motion and maximum speed attained during the current ride. The red and black stripes on the speed dial indicate the speed limit (tiltback speed) being enforced (via firmware) by the wheel (Kingsong only). The area of the dial covered by the red/black stripes is the speed that cannot be exceeded (real-time data). This bar may appear in the following scenarios: - The wheel has just been switched on but the motor has not yet been engaged. The speed limit is therefor set to 20 km/h until the wheel is moved and the motor engages. The bars will then disappear. - The “regulatory compliance” function has been enabled, setting the wheel’s tiltback speed and 3rd alarm to 20 km/h. - The wheel’s battery has reached a level where the firmware is beginning to enforce speed throttling. In the example above, the dial is indicating that at 42% battery, the wheel will tilt back at 43 km/h. Note that this figure is actually voltage dependent and will vary depending on load. 8. Load dial: Only displayed when current alarms are enabled. It indicates the wheel current in real-time, relative to the value set for the current alarm. When the bar is yellow it indicates discharge (positive current). When it’s blue it indicates regeneration (negative current). The yellow and blue dots indicate the maximum discharge and regen load levels (positive and negative current) attained during the current ride, respectively. If you get no blue bar or dots, but only yellow, it means your wheel doesn’t support this function, as it only reports current, without distinguishing between negative/positive current. 9. Charging status: Green when the wheel is being charged. Gray when not charging. 10. Malfunction warning: Red when the wheel reports a failure of some type. Gray when everything is OK. 11. Phone connected and battery level indicator. 12. Smartwatch connected and battery level indicator. 13. EUC data indicator: Indicates that the information displayed on the gauge and the status section below is for the connected EUC. The EUC icon is grey when no EUC is connected, and green when a wheel is connected. Swiping up on the gauge switches to GPS data, and the EUC icon is replaced by a icon. When grey, it indicates that no tours are being tracked or that GPS connection has been lost. When blue, it indicates that a tour is being tracked and that the information displayed on the gauge and the stats section below are from the GPS. Swipe back down to switch to EUC data.

    Yeah, I didn’t expect that either. This one already looks like the industry has now upgraded from the garage shops to serious design and manufacturing. The others will have to invest good amount of money to keep up. Very exciting year coming. And yes, the name is weird. V12 would have worked better.

    I think this is just a cheaper option for people who can't afford the 16X. Or maybe a way for them to use their 2000W motors now that the 18XL switched to the 2200W like the 16X.

    I plan to simplify things by merging current CSV logging and tour tracking features into one, unified and easy to use feature. It will work both online and offline, will buffer entire tours and will provide the same level of details that is now available in CSV logs. I hope to make it available before this summer. Meantime I will try to add some GPS status to CSV logging feature. It's important to note that feature we often call a GPS doesn't have to be a real GPS (or any other sat nav system). Android can use many ways to obtain location - using BLE beacons, WiFi hotspots, cellular towers (BTS), dead reckoning and sattelites. More, it may fuse data obtained from different sources, like dead reckoning, WiFi and BTS. In most cases such location is good enough to use for navigation, mapping or even activity tracking. EUC World is different. It explicitly requires GPS/GLONASS as this is the only precise source of location, bearing and speed. That's why some apps may seem to receive location updates while EUC World doesn't get location updates. But there is a good solution proposed some time ago by @Victor Solovjov - use GPS Status & Toolbox app. Just start it and it will also start GPS receiver. This app will also provide A-GPS that greatly decrease GPS warm up time. After GPS will lock, you can start EUC World.

    Using EyeRide with EUC World would be a very attractive idea. However, now it's hard to say when it would be possible. For sure Android Auto integration would require substantial amount of work. I'll keep following this idea.

    I tend to stay clear of the subject of religion, but the news below was just too much. While the rest of us get fined by the police if we leave our house without proper justification, here's an example of the dated privileges of the Catholic church in Spain, where the police escorted a priest as he walked around the town "driving away" the virus... "A priest 'drives away' the coronavirus through the streets of Sax with the escort of the Civil Guard" Last Sunday, after the 12 noon mass that could not be celebrated due to the state of alarm, the priest of Sax, Alfredo Beltrá, took to the streets of the Alicante municipality to bless the residents of the municipality. Carrying the Blessed Sacrament, he went to the Plaza de San Blas escorted by a Civil Guard patrol, and did so with the knowledge of the City Council, governed by the Popular Party. https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.eldiario.es%2Fcv%2Falicante%2Fahuyenta-coronavirus-Sax-Guardia-Civil_0_1011399914.html

    On the first screen, I understand where the speed, battery and temperature scale are. It is understood that the maximum value of the battery is 100%. What is the maximum temperature, I don’t know, I don’t know the maximum speed either, but I can see it in the settings. What the inner arc shows at the top, I have no idea. What do the large points on the arcs mean, I don’t know either. Need a diagram with arrows, with explanations.

    Since I have been having all the fun on the wheels, my wife decide she would give it a try. She has been practicing for a couple hours and making excellent progress! For her she says the hardest part was not starting, stopping or turning ...but breathing ! Lol. She was so nervous she was holding her breath! After this little clip we spent time riding around the block! I'm very proud of her accomplishment !

    Short answer: Yes, get the V10F instead! Long answer: It depends on the details (what do you want to do with the wheel, does it have to be easily carryable?), but ... most likely you should get the V10F instead!

    Hey, I know exactly how you feel, you’re waiting for a decision but you’re having some doubts. I started my riding career on a V10f, I was stuck between the V8and V10f. I researched, asked the forum, made comparison charts, and it came down to the V10f. My decision should be similar to yours, so here’s what I can offer. Although the V10f is MUCH heavier (50 lbs compared to 29), your trading that weight for a 2x stronger motor and almost double the battery as well. Plus, it’s not like your lifting the wheel a whole lot. A heavier wheel is actually more comfortable and stable to ride, from my experience and from what I hear. The V8f although a good improvement over the V8; you don’t want a little hill to kick you off the wheel due to overload. This is where the V10f shines. Let’s not forget about the battery too. Always take the advertised range with a grain of salt, so finding the best range out there is priceless. In conclusion, if you really want a wheel that will last you a long time, the V10f is the best option from INMOTION. I guarantee that you will one day outgrow the V8/F. I’m overall very happy that I chose the V10f over the V8 in the past. PS, the new V11 is coming out in a few days, see if that interests you

    777Wh KS-16X have diferent (weaker/smaler/6 mosftes) mainboard. I think is nonsence 777Wh is realy low range 16x case is fat in my opinion . Take another EUC or save more money or take loan and buy FULL HD Ks16x 1554 Wh. If you weight is under 80kg take V10F i dont recomended V10F for people 110kg +. I dont understand you logic you have One E+. Now is time to go realy ubgrade = 16X, Nikola 1800Wh, MSX , MSP 18XL. All what i say here is based on my personal experience what can save you money in future.

    I'm 55 as well hence the name Senior Coffee. I started riding what I call balance devices last year. I started with the Onewheel in July '19 and soon moved to EUC's in August. I quickly became a big fan of the added range, speed and maneuverability of the EUC's. I'm 210, 5' 9" and pretty physically fit. Years of fitness and 20 yrs in the military. With that said here are some opinions and observations. There is a bit of a learning curve to it. I get asked the question on a regular basis of the difficulty and I answer truthfully, it is truly difficult in the beginning but no more so than learning to ride a bike. Like many other things that you could do, riding an EUC truly comes down to time and miles on the wheel. To answer your question from the info given, you're not too old. In fact, riding the EUC, well, the process of learning to ride an EUC, helped me to increase my fitness level a little and lose 20 lbs in approx 3 weeks. It literally is a work out at first because of what I call "flailing my arms like a buzzard in a hurricane" while learning. The legwork while balancing or trying to balance uses some energy as well. Also the fact of picking myself up off the ground time after time. Who knew that falling and getting up off the ground so often was a work out, lol. There are a number of skills that have to be learned and it takes miles and time to master. To this day, I still use the local middle school track for my "skills practice". I can go there on the weekends without having to deal with what I call D.O.C.K. Dogs, obstacles, cars and kids. I use the straight sprint area for start/stop practice and straight line speed. I use the actual track itself for long sweeping turns at higher speeds and practicing staying in the lanes which will help on trails and paths. The school sidewalks are used for tight maneuvering and city sidewalk skills. The wheelchair ramp up to the track has a handful of very tight turns. Finally I use the parking spaces as an opportunity to practice somewhat tight right/left back to back turns. With each wheel that I purchase, I spend the first 50 or so miles at the track before I ever take it out on the street. Ok, now for my observations after riding for approx. 9 months and owing a number of different types of wheels. I'm still a novice at this and remember these are my opinions drawn from personal experience and what I've gathered from research online or in person. These are in no particular order or importance, just notes. * Get used to falling. It's inherent IMO with any type of balance device. Buy all of the pads suggested and always wear them, ALWAYS, no matter how slow you may ride and comfortable you may get. I'm closing in on 600 miles on EUC's, not counting the miles on Onewheels, and I still fall, less often now, but I always know that it's coming. * If you weigh more that 180#, get a 16" or bigger wheel. The stability of the bigger wheel will make a difference in initial learning. I weigh 210 and made the mistake of starting on a 14" wheel. IMO it was too small for a beginner of my weight and too squirrely. I was on the ground continuously until I got a bigger wheel. The bigger wheel was an instant improvement in stability and allowed me to concentrate on learning since I was riding more than falling. * Learn on one EUC exclusively. Don't step on another balance device during this time period. Pad it up and ride it until you have at least 150 miles. Try to ride at least 30 minutes every day during this time. Of course life and weather play a big part. Practice as many skills as possible every time you ride. By approx. 150 miles on the same wheel you should be fairly good on it. When I buy a new wheel, I now spend at least 100 miles on it before going back and riding any one of my others. Each one is truly a bit different than the others and your body/brain will have to learn the little differences of it. I just bought an Inmotion V10 and I've already beat it up while getting used to it. I'll have to buy some new plastic for it. Pretty good on it now after 75 miles. * Spend you're initial 30 or so miles on a smooth grass surface. You're 55 yr old body will thank you for this. The grass is to help you (when you fall not if you fall) in providing more cushion for you and the wheel during your initial learning days. Get off the grass as soon as you're somewhat comfortable as grass is more akin to riding off road and unless you're going to ride off road exclusively you need to practice on the street. They are two different riding experiences. * Group rides. Once you get comfortable and have honed your skills a bit, go on group rides. The longer the better. They force you to use all of the skills you've been practicing. I had put only approx. 80 miles on my Ninebot Z10 before doing my first group ride. I did two long group rides back to back within a week of each other and noticed my riding ability had improved greatly. * Do not give up. Anyone can learn this. I think every one of us at some point had the thought of "I'm not sure I want to do this anymore, it's damn difficult". It is difficult at first but the reward comes very quickly. Put the time in, it's extremely fun once you learn it. You'll notice I didn't cover tips and tricks on initially learning to ride. There's plenty of info out there on this and no reason to beat the dead horse as the saying goes. Your body has to learn to balance on this device and no tip or trick that will do that for you, that part is up to you physically and mentally. You'll be amazed at how quick you pick this up and the key is to doing this every day for 30 minutes while learning. Ride On....

    THanks Seba. I have my device set to gps by satellite only, as wifi and cell towers arent much use around here. Gps status would be worth a drink or two for sure! I already have a gps app, perhaps I should get used to checking it for lock, BEFORE opening EUCW. Eucw has worked with and without the app, so it's probably just a simple matter or sometimes my device locks into gps and sometimes doesnt. I'll use the app you suggest tho, as I know so little. I'll do some further testing and ensure its got signal before starting any csv logs. ANy idea why my tour page shows me empty, even when logged in?

    Thanks for asking! Arm is progressing well, have plenty of time to work on strengthening for when I can eventually go outdoors and ride again. Have put done 5.4 km on the 16X in the last two weeks, 159km in total since I bought it Can't wait to hit the trails again! It's ridiculous I can't do so at the moment...as a solitary ride in nature would be better / more effective than total self-quarantine indoors...but the law is the law, and if they allowed people out to exercise, the streets would be packed...so we'll just have to wait it out. Workwise, I can't complain. I'm a freelance translator and work from home. I can't apply for government aid (freelancers get squat), but don't need it, had been putting in lots of extra hours anyway to make up for the zero-revenue Easter Holiday. And as is goes, SARS-nCoV-2 brought more work than I could handle during the first week or so (intra-company communications on supply chain disruptions, temporary closures, press releases, announcements to clients and suppliers, banks issuing statement and predicrions reassuring clients, you name it). Now thing have calmed down and I have a some down-time, but I expect them to pick up again next week, in anticipation of the theoretical end of the lockdown (which will possibly be extended; but who knows...). How's patient turnout at your clinic? Have numbers dropped? The clinic where my girlfriend works is temporarily closed; even though they weren't legally obliged to do so (which is ridiculous considering that rehab is virtually impossible without close-proximity, physical contact), as all patients cancelled their appointments anyway

    There is also a fourth possibility: The virus evolved into a less deadly strain that is not much worse than a flu (especially when you consider asymptomatics). I suspect that's what may be happening in all countries without many deaths, including Japan. The amount of anecdotes of people having "a few days of high fever + a dry cough" in the last three months is staggering. Which may mean that we're way closer to a herd immunity than we initially thought and Boris Johnson was right... Or it may be that current efforts (closed schools and restaurants + facemasks) are more than enough to let it slowly burn in a population, but not overwhelm the healthcare system... Anyway, right now I feel like I've overreacted. Which is a good thing, it's definitely better to have toiler paper than not to have it. ########################### I hope Japan gets spared... I really want to see Eiichiro Oda, Yoshihiro Togashi and Akihito Tsukushi finish their masterpieces.

    I'm glad it helped! It's very clever indeed how Seba has managed to pack all that extra info in such a small space, without making it over-cramped, just by using the dots. It's a shame it was being lost on so many people...something had to be done about that! As to the GPS screen, there might be a bit of a caveat to using it to test the app's GPS: You have to be tracking a tour for it to display GPS status. Say you leave home (and have mobile data), open EUCW. and go to GPS data by swiping up on the gauge. You'll find that the GPS icon is greyed out and the stats below the gauge are blank (hyphens instead of numbers). The second you start tracking a tour, the icon will turn blue and time, speed and other stats will appear. If, while tracking a tour, you lose GPS connection, the icon will turn grey (you'll also get a message in the status bar, the status bar will change color and if voice messages are on, you'll get a prompt informing you that GPS signal has been lost). So in your case, to test EUCW GPS status, you'd have to start tracking a tour when in your front porch, for example, so the Lemfo is connected to your wifi AND can get GPS signal, and then go for a ride. Once you lose wifi, the tour probably won't be recorded properly, but you'll be able to monitor GPS, for testing purposes. I tried it on the balcony, and GPS signal monitoring remains active even if I switch off wifi and mobile data, and the app reports loss and regain of GPS signal Another option would be to ask @Seba if he can make a small change so the GPS icon is blue if there's a GPS connection, regardless of whether a tour is being tracked or not. After all, there are plenty of other indicators that a tour is being tracked: the color of the status bar, the GPS stats on the main page, the entire tour screen...

    I just realized, it looks an awful lot like there is a separate outer shell with enough clearance for suspension travel! The tail light is a part of the inner shell that isn’t suspensioned, just the tortoise-like upper shell moves up and down. And pedals are of course attached to the outer tortoise shell. The teaser images are starting to look really cool! Me wantsies!

    --> I'm in.<-- I wanted something for learning, and based on my impressions from reading volumes of posts on this forum: KS14M Sturdy and not huge, so It can be dropped without breaking or having that gut-wrenching feeling that comes with dropping a $1,000+ wheel. Similar 800W motor as in a 10" GW MTen3, but with a 14" wheel it shouldn't be as twitchy, and is also more affordable (especially since I purchased it used). Big enough to ride around on smoothly. (10" wheels don't like running over things, 14" should be "reasonable") The range sucks (~5 miles). With a booster-pack it might keep up with a miniPro hoverboard. (I'll worry about that if/when the time comes.) It won't kill me (I hope). It probably doesn't have that much power. (Though I've learned never underestimate a fall) It's fairly light. (That's probably important for when it tries to eat my ankles.) The battery is reasonably affordable. In Wisconsin weather the wheel will sit more than it's used, and the batteries will probably die of age instead of use. (Distance is the big issue, 15 miles is a reasonable outing on the hoverboards.) It's a reliable, popular brand. (help/parts are available, easy to fix, shouldn't break unexpectedly) Obviously I won't be speeding....

    I started with the Onewheel and added EUC's to the mix a month later. I now own a couple EUC's the latest of them being a V10. This is all my opinion. From personal experience, nothing transfers from the Onewheel except that your brain/body has learned how to balance on something that is also trying to balance you. I still own and ride a OW plus with a two-x kit. The EUC will be a different process and going by the date of your initial post you've probably already figured that out. I've got approx. 600 miles under my belt as far as the EUC goes so far but still consider myself a novice. You did good by buying the V10. It's one of the most reliable ones out there with plenty of power and range. I've put 75 miles on mine and I'm much better on it now. It's a bigger wheel so much more stable and also has a good sized battery pack. You'll love the increased range when compared to the OW. I still love the OW but the EUC is my first pick when I go out to the garage with the intention of going for a ride on one of my PEV's. Tips: Make sure to wear all your pads even if you're just doing simple stuff in the grass. You will most likely fall a lot more than the Onewheel. It will become a skill lol. Spend 30 miles in the grass, trust me, that shiny V10 and your body will thank you. Even with the cover you'll still scratch the heck out of the pedals on pavement. Get off the grass as soon as you're comfortable. it's more like riding off road. Get on the street. You'll immediately see the difference between the two. Practice for 30 mins each day and practice with a purpose. Practice turns one day, riding straight the next and start/stop the next, etc. It all makes a difference. It will seem difficult for a while and one day it will all just "click" and you'll go from being uncomfortable to comfortable in a split second. As soon as you get comfortable, go on a group ride. The longer the better. You will be forced to use all of the skills you've been practicing and you'll get better faster. Welcome to the EUC world and enjoy, I'm positive you'll love the EUC.

    I saw that diagram & it looks like the ground (?) of the two speakers goes into "ck". The com connects to the blue rectangle with 2 green squares inside. I hope that is recognizable in the wheel after I open it. Does this part require cutting wire to run it to the green squares or is it already like that and I have to run the 2 together to the "com" ? Not sure The red square ground goes to "Gnd" and the red square voltage goes to vcc. I'm guessing that pre-mod, the speaker Grnd went to the red square (grnd) and the speaker voltage went to red square voltage. These are just my guesses, as I think this works with the module "sitting inbetween" the red square & the speaker wires. I could be totally wrong...? I think a "before" picture would be helpful, as this just seems to be the "after" picture.

    Exactly. This is what requires skill, experience, foretelling and luck to pick the right wheel from YT reviews. Once I got well familiar with my MSX, I used to call myself an ”aggressive and fast” rider. I don’t call myself that anymore, after seeing what some (mostly Russian) people do on their wheels...

    Fateful Encounter And a couple of comments Yesterday I was riding the 16X around the downtown area of my small mid-western town in the USA. I stopped at a street corner for a moment waiting for Main St. traffic to clear enough for a safe street crossing. Traffic cleared and then along came an older gentlemen, like myself, riding a GotWay Monster down the unusually Corona quiet street. I flagged him down and he pulled over. We chatted for a while, comparing notes. He had been riding about a year and a half. Myself, just over two months, and out and about just under a month .... waiting for my skills and confidence to improve enough to venture away from my training grounds. After sitting for the chat, we rode around a couple blocks chatting it up some more. It was getting late in the day and he had about 8 miles of riding to get home. He wanted to ride home during the daylight, so we parted company. I have been watching for other EUC riders since that young man whizzed by me on the trail, with no sightings until yesterday. The older gentleman thought that it may have been him that rode by me on the trail. But as I think back, the trail guy must have been on a KS16X, KS18L/XL or similar because of the colorful pulsating LED string on each side. The Monster does not have the pretty Christmas tree light thing happening. The gentleman is strictly a Monster rider for now (but in the market for the MSP next) so it could not have been him. So, theoretically there is probably 3 of us in my local area now. If the EUC market is penetrating into my little town, that is good news for the industry. Typically the small towns in this area of the country are one of the last populations to adopt the latest trends or technology. Sometimes, as I ride around, I hear comments like, "Holy ____, look at that", or "Hey, that's cool". Some people slow down as they drive by while having a look at that crazy thing. Granted that 95% of the people just maybe notice it and keep on with their own business. It is hard to impress the ever more sophisticated population. Just ask the movie producers in Hollywood! Due to expense, I don't see teenagers riding around on these things unless they have unusually generous parents. From what I've seen on YouTube, it is a somewhat mature crowd (at least young adults) for the most part, riding these things. That may turn out to be a good thing, to keep the image of a EUC rider as respectable as possible. We all know that teenagers in general have a higher shenanigan coefficient! Of course, there are some that are mature beyond their years. I would like to thank the people from around the globe that responded with their welcome. And keep the YouTube videos coming. I'm watching them all. And to Mike in Sweden, if you read this, my wife enjoys your humor and the touring of your country as much as I do. I would be glad to drink a beer with you, and I don't even drink beer. Well, maybe once a year!

    Yea I agree @travsformationit's ridiculous when guys in black dresses and pointy hats can do as they want just because they believe in some invisible magical man in the sky. A lot of these people can dissuade very ill people from serious medical help by telling the sick a god will protect them. In a lot of cases these priests etc don't even believe in evolution and try to promote that message - how on earth do we create vaccines etc without a clear understanding of evolution and science in general

    Sounds like good progress. For feet position, everybody has their own style, just try to find the best stand for your comfort. For me, I find standing a little bit to the front, heals rest comfortably on the pedals, toes stick out front, is the most comfort (my shoes size 10.5, V10 pedals). Legs relax but close to the wheel body (some guys like the very wide stand), never grab to the body even when it wobbles, unless you want to accelerate and decelerate quickly. Shift the body weight between the legs from time to time, move the feet around while riding help a lot with long ride.

    Msp is such an amazing machine. The speed, the torque , the power

    I'd like to be that optimistic, but I don't have much hope. We've had sociopathic leaders for as long as anyone alive has ever known, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. What's more, we vote them into office. And even so, that's based on the assumption that government rules over the corporate world and not the other way around...

    LEDs strips and speakers are non essential, the only real issue IMO is the battery range, which is, to be realistic, about 7-8 miles. But yes like WaveCut said.. I start to believe learner wheels have to be second hand, or match the minimum use (range?) the buyer have (so to stay useful) or be skipped altogether: you can protect your powerful wheel the time it takes to learn. For many the issue is you can't know if you'll like it, so going over 1000 money is scary.. (and expensive)

    A local rider just installed the small $2 relay card from the above link to his Nikola, and succesfully removed the startup tone. The speakers connect automatically after the tone has been played. Edit: Final install location:
