    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+)

    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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

    Or two wheels, you know, on their bike!

    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.

    Then perhaps this black one would be more to your liking? https://www.inlinewarehouse.com/Powerslide_Skate_Trail_Finger_Bell/descpage-PWBELL.html

    Yeah, you might be right about that. My plan is to wait for some reviews to come in (and for batch #2 to get into production) for the various new wheels that are on the way out, and then make a decision. I'm leaning toward getting the V10F from Justina.

    @Boogieman, have you considered the other two options (InMotion V10F and King Song KS-18L)?

    Seeing them next to each other, I'm actually more drawn toward the V10F.
