  1. Outstanding! A simple solution to a big problem for some. Thanks for sharing your skills! Edit: Sorry to be a pain but I can't get the Crydom or Amazon relays in the UK. Would you be kind enough to select the correct relay from this page please? The filters really help but I have no idea where to start! https://www.mouser.co.uk/Search/Refine?N=18383526
  2. No problem my friend, thanks! Just wondered if I had missed an update
  3. Hi Seba did you manage to correct the Tizen mileage issue yet?
  4. Only just uploaded this vid I did a couple of weeks back. Not a patch on the usual quality/content you find in this thread and perhaps a little monotonous but I am so excited I had to share. Eucs have created a wonderful and massively fun pastime that I can share with my daughter and we are enjoying our time together immensely, exploring and having new experiences in a way that we would never have done before the wheels. God bless the euc! She is really getting confident now, using her knees more and is gaining speed to the point that since this vid we are now armoured up and she uses a full face helmet. Lots for both of us to learn still but it has been amazing seeing her progress from those first hops in the kitchen a few months ago to where she is now. I have a feeling that this summer is going to be awesome My thanks also to all on this forum, you have helped get a new and exciting relationship to a father and daughter
  5. Follows ruts/grooves/raised edges in the road. The Z is particularly bad imo because of the wide tyre having a greater contact patch with anything that touches either side of the centreline. The wheel wants to steer into whatever contacts the edge of the tyre. You can feel tramlining on the Z even over painted white lines in the road. I dont get this at all with the V5. You get used to it to an extent but it never goes away. Sometimes it can be quite violent. Pumping the tyre up to maximum (or even over) reduces it but the ride is then rock hard. Its the only thing on the Z I dont like (but love the rest of it).
  6. Hi Lukasz, I sent you an email a few days ago to order some Z pedal openers. I didn't get a reply yet so thought I would post here. Hopefully we can get an order arranged. Thanks.
  7. I'd be up for changing the voices. The one that really annoys me is when hooking up music. "the Bluetooth is connected successfully' is in such a bad accent and so loud that it drives me crazy!
  8. Anyone have good knowledge of the Z battery setups? I believe that all the Z's use the same motherboard and power board. Certainly, the power board on my Z6 visibly appears to be the same as the Z10, and I also have the 2x power plugs which exit on the battery side, one of which is not used on my Z6 battery which only has one output plug. So the question is, could I make a straight swop of my Z6 battery for a Z10 one? I see no reason why not, but thought I would ask. Possibly I would need to run Z10 firmware so that the motherboard can 'see' the dual plugged Z10 battery? If all else fails it wouldn't be hard to splice the two Z10 batteries together in parallel and run them into the single plug currently used. Voltage would remain the same, the only issue with this is that the app/firmware wouldn't pick up the doubling of available Wh which would reflect in the remaining shown battery percentage. I could work with this though. And yes I could just buy a complete Z10 but I really don't need the speed nor the rest of the wheel except the battery
  9. Pretty much as I suspected. 99.9% true, but don't forget that the dude who had his wheel seized a while back (a Gotway I think?) presented a mobility insurance certificate to the police and managed, by an utter stroke of luck, to get his wheel back because of it. So in his eyes, probably the best £70 he has ever spent.
  10. I'm around 90kg and I get 15 miles from my 530Wh Z6 so you should be good for 30 miles from the 995Wh Z10
  11. I thought that these type of capacitors had a sort of fibrous material inside them, not fluid? I believe the board is also plasti-dipped (mine looks like it is) so it's unfortunate that any non-pressurized surface fluid would get itself into any electrical connections.
  12. I cant help feeling that the underwriters have made a faux pas of sorts. I would love to be wrong on this however, as my wallet would be ready.
  13. I'm still trying to work out how 10+ people have this insurance yet its still not a done deal and of those 10+ people we still cant clarify exactly what is and isnt covered and under what riding conditions (the small print)
  14. Ah OK mate I thought it was already a done deal. Be good to see what the final outcome is. If, and this is a big If, the company are indeed prepared to honour any 3rd party claims whilst the wheel is being used on a road, it still doesnt negate the requirement for a driving licence in accordance with the vehicle. Not to mention that without SVA or some sort of roadworthiness approval there will be numerous Construction and Use offences. Easily a ban on your licence for that lot. Being insured is, as you know, the biggie though so if we can at least get that it would certainly ease the pain if involved in an rtc.
  15. Ok I will hit this from a different angle. All mech prop vehicles need to be registered, bar certain exceptions stated in law (which an EUC isnt). If its not registered then any insurance you have obtained for said vehicle isnt valid. Neither is the vehicle traceable which is quite pertinent in the event of a serious rtc make-off. What have the insurers got to identify it as your vehicle? Its a bit like building a kit car, not SVA'ing or registering it and giving the insurers some random index (this is hypothetical as insurers have index databases) and obtaining insurance. The certificate may well have your index on it but the paper wont be worth a light. Im not knocking anyone here at all, and anything that might fool plod at the roadside and show that you have at least made an effort to get imsurance is all good, but it wont fool a traffic cop and certainly not a court.
