    THE HELMET THREAD

    Well, the battery on my V5F+ has more or less given in, so I use my bike instead. Actually kind of like the huffing now that my fitness level has become decent. I've been tempted to deploy it just to test it but once you do, you'll have to buy a new one. If you find yourself in an accident your home insurance company will more than likely cover the cost of the replacement, depending on the circumstances, but if it triggers because of a false positive it might be more difficult to get them to pay up.

    THE HELMET THREAD

    I have one, and use it every day on my bike, but I would not wear it on an EUC. Unfortunately, Hövding is tweaked for bicycle riding and might not properly detect a crash if you're on something other than a bike. In fact, the company expressly state that the device is not for use on unicycles. They shouldn't even be worn by children on regular bikes, because a child's riding style differs from an adult's. The exakt quote is: "Hövding är endast avsedd för stads- och landsvägscykling. Ej BMX, Mountainbike, enhjulingar, tandem- och trickcyklar mm." --> "Hövding is intended exclusively for road and city cycling. Not BMX, Mountainbike, unicycles, tandem, or trick bikes, etc." Would have been awesome to be able to use it, but I certainly don't want to take the risk.

    Totally agree, alliterations are awesome and absolutely amazing! Anyway... nice write-up, @Marty Backe, keep it coming!

    InMotion V5F just powered off?

    Hello @Heroine Smith and welcome to the forum! A spin-out might seem scary, but is generally nothing to worry about. It is normal for the wheel to turn itself off when it reaches a certain speed, so nothing unusual about that. It is, however, weird that it won't turn back on. Have you tried to turn it on again a little later, after letting it rest for a while? That it won't charge is also weird. Too bad on such a great little creature - it's a great beginner wheel IMO! (I learned on the V5F+)

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    I like your reasoning, and I also like that the tiltback is related to remaining battery power instead of some fixed speed. 👍 Another way of controlling the turn speed of the tiltback, however, might be to use a low-pass filter on the input data stream. By designing the filter correctly, one could make sure that temporary short bursts of power don't trigger tiltbacks unnecessarily as well.
  6. Ok, I guess that could be something that Jason at ewheels did before sending my V5F+ along. Or maybe they (InMotion) have changed their routines between then and now.
  7. Or do what InMotion does: disable the wheel before shipping, requiring the customer to press a tiny reset pin hidden inside a tiny hole in the body before the wheel can be turned on using the power button.

    Sorry about all the question marks in that old thread... they are supposed to be emoticons! Something must have broken on the site at some point.

    That's a very good point. I once read an interview with a rock climber whose finger was "de-gloved" (that's what they call it) in a fall because it got caught in a carabiner. The pictures of the guy's hand were quite horrific.
