  1. I finally have the whole family riding and I created a new YouTube Channel called Wheeling Family Robinson where we ride EUCs. I uploaded several videos so far and more are in process uploading, check 'em out:
  2. I bought the Insta360 One recently since it was on sale for only $199 and this was my first time taking 360° video. I didn't really do any research but I figured it was a good starter. But, so far, I'm disappointed in the video quality after using Free Capture in the Insta360 Studio 2020 software. It's not nearly as sharp and crisp as I thought it would be. For anything that more than 4' away (in other words anything other than myself at the end of the selfie stick) it is a blurry mess. I took a ride with my family and you can see them there, but you can't make out their faces or anything. I have so much to learn! Am I doing something wrong in post editing? Or do I simply need a better camera? What do i need to do to be able to upload 4K video to YouTube like Marty and Chooch and these other guys do? I created a new YouTube Channel called Wheeling Family Robinson where our whole family of four rides EUCs. (Oh, I exported the video again using the Remove Grain function in Insta360 Studio 2020 and it is not as blurry as before) I uploaded several videos so far and more are in process, check 'em out:
  3. It's smart to always bring the essentials when out riding...you never know when you're going to need them. Some people take chances and don't bring anything with them; but I don't go anywhere without my toaster. Just wait until they need it...then who'll be the dumb one?!
  4. I recently bought a brand new KS16S for my wife from eWheels. According to eWheels site, the KS16S "Maximum cruising speed has been increased from 18.6MPH to 22MPH." However, the maximum speed in the app only goes to 21 MPH. Does Darknessbot need to be updated to allow for the faster speed setting?
  5. I've had Darknessbot for about 5-months now; but I just recently got a new iPhone 11 and an Apple watch series 5. Does the iPhone have to be connected all the time or is their a way to only use the watch without carrying your phone with you?
  6. Are you saying any 100v Gotway? As in either the 100v MSX, or Nikola, or Monster, are all good for people our size with no problems?
  7. Thanks for that link! One thing I notice it's missing though is the 100 volt Monster. Those ranges for the Monsters listed also seem way higher than advertised on eWheels site. So are the speeds for that matter. It would be nice to have a new wheel show up on the market that beats everything to date!
  8. I finally got it to work today! It took me constantly turning on and off the music switch in the KS app and then returning to my iPhone General Settings and Bluetooth section and eventually the "KingSongMusic" station eventually appeared! I don't know why it was so problematic to appear before, but it is now there and I was very happy with using it today on a long 48-mile ride. (Also, apparently you can connect to both the wheel "KS-18L-5100" and the "KingSongMusic" "devices" simultaneously...)
  9. Thank you so much for the very seasoned and sensible response. I will take it heart. I have relatively jam-packed as much experience as I can into this "sport?" over these first 6-days of ownership, and last 6-days of Holiday time off; and I return to the grind of the work week tomorrow. I had a super ride today on a dedicated biking trail on a beautiful clear blue sky, cloudless, day between 55° and 59° Fahrenheit. I logged another 48.27 miles. I started at 100% battery and ended with 20.72% battery left over. 191.35 miles now officially logged through first 6-days of ownership. My skills are definitely improving. Now I can heal my soreness during this coming week of work. After hitting 25% battery left the ride is basically over because of the throttling. I can definitely see the advantage of owning more than one wheel in the future (different model): To always have another ready that is fully charged. I envision a Gotway in my future. What do you'all heavy guys think about the Ninebot Z10?
  10. Bridgeboy is because I have actually built a lot of bridges for a living. I've had that nickname since the Internet started gaining traction in the mid 90's after I had helped build a couple of bridges by then. I'm more of a bridge man now, lol, but I still keep the name.

Another bonus is that I FINALLY got the Bluetooth speakers to play music. I've been struggling to get that feature working for the past five days. The 18XL with the new 2,200w motor is whisper quiet, actually completely silent...I hear nothing at all but the rubber rolling on the ground...and rolling up on people with no music playing can really startle them (I slow way down when doing this...I don't zip by them).
  11. Thanks for the experienced advice! I'm thinking what will probably end up happening is I'll keep it, and after sufficient expereince, I'll ALSO buy a 100v Gotway. I've been eyeing the 100V MSX and also maybe and/or the Monster. I've also been considering the Ninebot Z10 with that big fat tire. I just read that this KS18XL was a good starter wheel for a beginner. The Gotways currently scare me a little because of their (lack of) safety history. Is your expereince on a KS18XL with a new one with the newer 2,200 watt motor?
  12. It's been confirmed by @december11 that I have the latest version of DB, V5.5.1 Do you have the new 2,200 watt motor and KS firmware V 1.0.0? If not, then that is probably why the app works for you and not for me. I don't know Brandon Sanderson but I wanted to get in some good experience riding an learning the EUC while I had time off from work. I plan to go for another long ride today, then back to work tomorrow . I am sore in many places...using muscles differently than I'm used to. I think I'm the first and only person in my town with one of these. I have never seen anyone else on one of these locally. There may be someone, but I have never seen them before and nobody else who has seen me has either. Some of the looks I get are priceless I have no speed settings in DB app:
  13. Another 41-miles today Now I'm at a total of 143 miles for my first five days owning the KS18XL. I checked speed and alarm setting and everything is the same. The highest I can put the "warping" is at 31 mph. So apparently this thing really was unlocked from the beginning; or at least the KS app allowed it to be unlocked without any distance requirements to be met. I now ride with one alarm at 28 MPH and the tilt back at 31 mph. I experienced the tilt back once so far at 31 mph). A little scary feeling. I pull back myself if I hear the alarm at 28 mph.
  14. I also have a KS18XL and I have yet to figure out how to play music through the speakers. There is no "KingSong Music" station listed in discoverable Bluetooth devices under settings on my iPhone. There is only "KS-18L-5100" which is, of course, my wheel which it must connect to in order for the KS app to work. Even if there were a "KingSong Music" device shown, the phone can only connect to one device at a time. While connected to "KS-18L-5100" and having the "Bluetooth Music Switch" turned on within the KS app, still no music with play through the wheel's speakers. Music played on my phone simply plays through the phone's speakers. See screenshots:
  15. Well now the forum is letting me drag and drop files straight into posts (see below). That feature must have been disabled before until I had more reputation here.
