    INMOTION V11 (2020)

    The battery indicator appears red color now instead of white. Perhaps this is to match the new red accented pedals?
  2. Anybody know if this is the motor's power wire wrapped in a metal spring for protection? It's the first shot in this video: https://youtu.be/MxeDze9YX0Q?t=1 If that's the motor power wire, having it exposed seems like it'll be prone to damage. At least it's protected by a flipped-up pedal, but it looks like it'd be constantly be knocked by the foot. Hopefully there's some extremely durable wiring being used.
  3. I completely agree here. I was due to buy a new wheel soon and would've purchased the V11 based on its non-suspension upgrades alone, over the V10f. The suspension is just a really exciting bonus. Gotway's lack of water-resistance means it's not even on the table for me. In general, Gotway makes wheels which don't align with my priorities.
  4. The app for my wheel (E+) shows the energy flow. A negative amperage value is regenerative braking and a positive amp value is the normal use of energy on flat terrain. I've noticed that when riding down hill I can usually find a "perfect" speed which results in close to zero energy usage according to the app. I was wondering if this means whether there is a higher top speed when going down hill, since very little energy might need to be used in that specific situation. Braking from those high speeds would still be a problem, as it could easily cause an overcurrent condition. Does anybody know how wheels handle this?
  5. Speeds on all electric unicycles are determined by the capability of the machine to keep you upright. Trying to hack them faster is a supremely bad idea.
  6. Is Kuji's V11 rim already dented?
  7. Currently we don't know what can be attributed to suspension vs attributed to mechanical foot lock-in (the foot cutouts or pads). S18 has cutouts which act as built-in kuji pads to hold your feet. Since Kuji was involved in development and his physical size would be the "ideal" scenario for how well those pads lock your feet into the wheel. We don't know how those cutouts fit other people's feet, and we don't yet know if pads can be attached to the V11.
  8. Most gyroscopes come packaged alongside accelerometers at very little cost compared to the individual components. It's totally possible for manufacturers to combine the angle data of the gyro with the acceleration data of the accelerometer to detect when a wheel is being leaned while being driven around a curve. This stuff isn't any more complicated than what late-generation Nintendo Wii controllers did once they had both sensors built in. The early generation wiimotes had only accelerometers, and a gyro was added later. Once you have both, the usefulness is greater than the sum of the parts.

    Anybody have a guess about whether those dual hex screws (above the pedals) could be used for attaching pads? Perhaps they're part of what attaches the saddle to the suspension, but it seems like a possible attach point if a longer screw is swapped in.
  10. This might be partially due to a review from a retailer vs a review from an enthusiast. If I owned a business selling, supporting, and repairing these devices I'm going to have a different lens when reviewing the product. A retailer is going to see this through a lens of customer interaction, training, support, maintenance etc... but an enthusiast can just evaluate it as a consumer.

    It'd be nice if there was a large grub screw near where pedals mate with the pedal holder. By default the screw could be tightened flush with the normal bracket surface and leave the pedals flat, but the screw could be partially backed-out to give the pedal more angle based on the user's preference.

    There is zero chance they're going to cut power to the wheel on an arbitrary 5 second countdown. This is a communication/translation issue.
  13. Accelerometers and Gyroscopes are commonly packaged in the same chip because they are often used together in a complimentary way. Gyroscopes give a signal which is much less "noisy", and it seems like most euc manufacturers are primarily using gyroscopes for their angle sensing. However, there could be an accelerometer inside the wheel already as one of these chip packages, and they could poll the gravity force to see if it's still strongly pointing "downward" while the gyro says it's tilting. This combination would profile someone cruising the edge of a bowl.

    This shipping converstion is a combination of boring, off-topic, and needlessly dragging a company through the mud.

    I like plan 2. Whether low power mode has a distance of 25km or 20km is not a huge deal to me - It'd be a gigantic planning failure on my part if batteries are low while I'm 25k from home.
