    Ever Buy Stuff That You Probably Don't Even Need?

    Not a problem for me personally but some of the people that were "flying with me" did feel a little bit uncomfortable. But what helps a lot is that they can use headtracking to control the camera gimbal - then it goes much better for the most part. I prefer to seat steady while using them goggles.

    Can't turn off speed limit

    Forum is a great source of information indeed. And mini pro ninebot is a fantastic little champ, enjoy it!

    Way to go! The limiter is a nasty show stopper for sure.

    Sharing and downloading of DIY light effects

    Yep, no luck for me either in loading extra patterns besides manually punching them in...

    Ehm… just checking… hehe. And to be on topic here, I've recently got DJI Goggles RE to match mavic better colourwise and to be able to watch some movies on long hauls. The white original ones did bother me with the "wrong" colour… Now I'm really trying to convince myself that I don't need a new mavic

    @Dai Morgan, just take it outside already and turn the limiter off of course! It won't kill you! The tiltback feels much worse with speed limiter on.

    Ninebot one shutting off while riding

    Sounds definitely like some of the individual cells in your battery pack are below the needed charge rate (or even plain dead) so when BMS cutting the motor out it is because them faulty cells rendering the whole battery unable to deliver enough juice... Did you try to leave your 9b1 on a charger for a couple of hours longer after the red light on the adapter goes green? That could probably level the cells out by charging them at low rate.

    New Inmotion V10 / V10F

    Almost the same thing I've been through a couple of years ago! My fault, low speed (even too low), no damage... Paying too much attention to people around me. Newbie fault at that time for me. Glad you're OK!

    New Inmotion V10 / V10F

    Fair enough. Don't get me wrong - I am not saying that a couple of hours of training before the first ever ride is not impressive.

    New Inmotion V10 / V10F

    Not that unusual, is it? I've been practicing about 20-25 minutes a day spread over the five days before I took my first proper ride to work. That way I've avoided the worst bruises and such.
  11. @GrAnd as I said, "known to be dangerous", like i.e. 1.2.7 (?) Not to mention the security breach in all fw versions prior to 1.4.0... (can't find the link right now) The Segway miniPRO scooter has a critical vulnerability. 1.1.7 is surely a popular version or so it seems.. at least among the early adopters. But not the safest one as there is a greater potential risk of being thrown off the minipro and the fact that in case of stepping off it (unintentionally) while moving, the minipro will proceed without rider pretending like nothing happened… On the plus side - It is probably sometimes marginally faster and starting more swiftly from standing still. Not too many pro's for users looking for safe and reliable ride. Latest FW version is safer by giving the user all the important feedback (both audible and tiltback), is easier to maintain cruising speed on, providing better range (lower battery consumption than on 1.1.x and 1.2.x). Remember we are talking about safety and most users reporting here got latest version of firmware on their minipro's.
  12. Ok, but anyway, the minipro's shouldn't be judged just by a single failure, without mentioning the circumstances like firmware version and possible overleaning etc. Owning 3 of them I can stand by them minipros being reliable and safe. Not running them against the beeps and tiltback and not using early versions of firmware known to be dangerous, of course.

    Rusted footplate?

    Try some CRC Freeze Off. Great stuff and works every time. I prefer this over WD-40. Soak the middle part of the bar for a good 5 minutes and hammer the bar out. The problem is that the bar could be bent so it's not just rust that holding it...
