  1. [Split from "Questions about new BT announcement by KS"] Dear @Jack King Song, Would it be possible to disable the confirmation "beeps" for example when starting app, changing wheel settings etc. ? Will there be a possibility to mute beeps? I'm sure many KS users would love to make their wheel silent.

  2. Please read the following information carefully: This thread started in spring 2019 and has almost a hundred pages! This means that much of the information it contains may be out of date. In the meantime, the EUC World application has been greatly expanded, new features have been added and many of the old ones have been changed or improved. For this reason, this thread no longer serves to help EUC World users and you should not ask questions about the EUC World application and service.

  3. My Dears, it was brought to my attention yesterday that there have been quite a few negative reviews of the EUC World app on Google Play. I'll honestly admit that I haven't taken the time to follow these reviews until now. Recently, not counting professional work and family, the remaining time I devote largely to the development of the EUC World project. This means not only preparing a new release of the application, but also a lot of changes on the EUC World website. I am convinced that you will be very pleased with what I am preparing for you. But let me get back to the point. Look

  4. There is a similar topic on the Russian EUC forum, and it is gaining popularity due to the frequent contributions of outstanding EUC artist - @Дед62. I got his permission to re-post his work here in the hope that it may inspire other artists and will extend the gallery of our favorite gadget. I believe you will enjoy this creative work.

  5. As you may have heard there are some rumours being spread. When a private chat is screenshotted and taken out of context it becomes a very dangerous situation. I'm here to help clarify a few things that have been spreading. 1. The King S20 Eagle is still 126V. There were NEVER any plans of making this 100v. 2. The second rumour is that Kuji is going to get the S20 Eagle for review this week, this is also not true. I do not intend on using my good friend Kuji as a test dummy. When we are at that stage we will confidently send Kuji an S20 for video collaboration. We will however be

  6. This is by no means anything "official", or complete, and everyone's welcome to chime in to propose new/missing/alternative terms and/or corrections. The point is to explain and make the terms less ambiguous and to help with understanding especially some of the more technical topics and discussions here. The usual term used for the electric unicycles has usually been an "EUC" (for Electric UniCycle). John Eucist has explained the reasons for using this term pretty well here: http://forum.electricunicycle.org/topic/119-why-am-i-calling-electric-unicycle-euc-for-short/ , so I don't see the

  7. This is my comprehensive account of All that is likely to be involved in fixing each of the known and some Newly discovered issues with the King Song S18. I would like to preface this write up by saying that I was fully aware of the can of worms the early batch S18 can pose and during my pre-order period I had plenty of time to opt out, especially given the disdain from some quarters that has been aimed at the S18. My opinion is that this disdain should really be aimed purely at King Song themselves and Not at the wheel! Added to that, it has been very difficult to get any specific clar

  8. The story of how I and two fellow wheel riders became lost in the mountains and lived to ride another day. As I begin this, it must be said that I'm the one with poor judgement in this story. Well intentioned, but... The Cogswell Dam, as I've previously written about, is a gorgeous area to ride an EUC. It's basically a canyon ride on the northern side of a mountain ridge. I've ridden it twice before. Throughout this region are countless trails, large and small. One of the most well known is a four wheel drive capable trail called the Rincon Shortcut OHV Trail. It stretches along the

  9. I agree to be honest with everyones point and really its all about finding balance. As you know if you've been in the EUC community or worked for any of these companies, these companies including ourselves sometimes have the difficult position of launching a product because we are 4-5 companies fighting for the clients in the same client base. This results in as you saw last year rushing to release the S18 because Inmotion V11 was launched, and we were scared it would impact our sales. I was hired last minute and was simply just told few days prior to organize a launch for the S18. Every

If you are planning on travelling to China & having access to your Gmail, YouTube, Drive, etc, the one thing you can depend on is that these sites will not only be inaccessible, but the days of circumvention through VPN is also effectively blocked across the country, making it a real pain to stay in contact with the rest of the world.

  11. This is the information we have so far: The Wheel had 7000km, in 9 months, when it was sent in for repair in late November It had sustained multiple crashes (David had written this in an earlier communication), destroyed inner-shell, chew-up motor wires, which also destroyed the controller; it was a unique specimen of a damaged Wheel. We have a good documentary trail for this repair. When it was sent back out, everything was changed except the battery pack. There was no visual indication, or other evidence that anything was wrong with the pack at that time. Assumi

If somebody can do better - use original http://electrotransport.ru/ussr/index.php?topic=51168.msg1199893#msg1199893 P.S. The recall company for Gotway is not included. Therefore, statistics on the Got are slightly larger in reality.

  13. No I drew that by hand. I should have stayed home after that. Unfortunately I decided to take the GW1600 out for a ride and ended up crashing. The wheel went into a uncontrollable wobble at high speed. I just returned from the emergency room. I suffered a fractured humerus that is going to require the Humpty Dumpty approach ( screws and plate) to put me back together again. My employees are terrified that I cannot work. Being the only practitioner in my practice I’m terrified as well. So this ends my riding days forever. Thank God for helmets. The extended jawline protected my face

As some of you may know from my first post in Inmotion thread, I have recently bought my first wheel - Inmotion V5F+.

  16. The Z10 is in the house Today I received the Z10 from Chooch. I am going to give him a hard time, but only because he's causing me some unneeded work and stress. It's all in fun though, but he deserves it As you know by now, the tire valve access is via a port on the side of the wheel, and requires a long (~4-inch) valve extender to access for filling. As shown in his video, he didn't care too much for the one that ships with the wheel. So he opted to use an existing one that he had from an earlier Ninebot wheel of his. I guess he decided to throw away the one that comes with th

  19. After two weeks of being held up at Customs, the long awaited pre-production 18XL turned up yesterday For some context & background: I received one of the original 18L pre-production Wheels back in April; the packaging foam wasn't properly thought out, so that the power button came into contact with the foam, causing it turn on & burn-out the control-board before even taking it out of the box. This time round, KS have really taken this issue seriously, so that the foam is positioned below power button, & if it were to somehow turn on, the Wheel is shipped with the software l

  20. This viewpoint is not correct. Mickey has poured a great many hours in creating his channel content, I doubt anyone has worked as hard, or shown the level of commitment that he has. Whatever compensation he has received through referals, product, is in no way commensurate to the time, energy & expertise invested. I can only surmise that this video was intended to invoke the polarizing strong reactions that it has. My personal opinion is that it oversteps the boundaries of 'pushing the limits', relishing danger-for-danger's sake. This might have an appeal to <25% of the general aud

  21. Yeah, no worries @US69, go ahead and keep that video. In regards to the video not being identical... yeah sure, but out of the ~15 runs i did, i assure you that i did at least a few runs that were just as hard as the one that caused the bobble failure. As for the throttling, i didnt feel it. Just got a little annoyed with the beeping (couldnt disable the beep at 30kph and double beep at 40kph). So... anyways, i feel much better about this firmware update and have regained a fair bit of confidence in the wheel. Time to go ride and do some crazy stuff for the 16X review video coming up.

  22. So to help clarify from my side, it is limited to HARD acceleration followed by immediate braking. Ive cruised at top speed followed by hard braking without any problems. So, braking isnt the issue, its the hard acceleration (much more preventable). Kingsong has been pushing out new firmware updates and made vast improvements to the motor control in the last month, so i believe that this will be a simple firmware update soon. A hard hill climb demanding the same power didnt result in this problem. Other than this motor control problem, the 16X has been a blast to ride.

  23. Why I Think The Nikola Is The Best Wheel At This Moment I’ve ridden it about 100-miles since Monday. I’ve taken on my first mountain test (picture above), climbing 5100-feet to ~11,000-feet. I’ve ridden it on tough rocky trails which demonstrated to me that it has superb low speed power (torque). First, if you have a MSX, KS18XL, etc., I’m not saying to necessarily run out and buy one. My commentary is for those of you who want to move up and have been torn as to which wheel to get. You can now safely skip the MSX, KS18XL, etc. The tire. It’s huge like the MSX. It’s wonderful li

  29. Since receiving the V10F about two weeks ago, I've put on 200km distance on the machine & have to confess I simply love it! One of the first things an experienced Rider will probably notice, is that between the 2.5" wide tire & high pedal height of 17.2cm (6.7"), it has the feel, & many of the ride qualities, of a 18" wheel. For additional control, hugging the sides of the Wheel with your calves feels very comfortable, probably the best ergonomics of any other Wheel.

After seeing the pictures I parked the wheel until I could find the time to tear it down and inspect the control board (good to have other wheels to ride ). A long career in electronics design and manufacturing made me suspect that this was an assembly "innovation" not a one-off quality slip. Before disassembly my Nikola was riding flawlessly showing no signs of a problem. (By the way this wheel is WONDE
