    V10 pads too thin?

    You will get used, when you ride more you will start driving more with the feet than with the calves ;-)

    Inmotion V10 fire.

    As far as I’ve understood I should be in the middle case but he told me i’m Ok...

    Inmotion V10 fire.

    My serial is 126...we have no info here about such problems, according to your info should I also worry and start working to seal the battery etc?

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    Well I must say that this is quite a good point ;-) I thought that in order to work without "power gyros" the acceleration ramps of the wheel should have been much higher, on the fairs of robots there are several demos of robots keeping balance and they are really much quicker in the accelerations than our wheels...but probably with our wheel this is just ok! Can any of you then explain me why both my V8 and V10 when they receive a shock (the V8 riding over a hole on the street and the V10 walking it down the stairs) start shaking like hell? With the V8 I also fell...I thought it was something related to the gyros loosing the angular momentum but I wouldn't know now... I had 12 Wh/km with the V8 and 15 with the V10F, strange....

    I know what a gyro is, it's a device with a double function, it can be used only as a sensor, so with almost 0 power consumption and it gives you a feedback on the position, without being affected by the inertia forces, the bigger brother on the other hand can also be used to stabilise things, so other than giving you the feedback of the position it can also actively influence the stabilisation of the object where it's mounted. (of course the bigger the angular momentum, the better is the stabilisation, here is my assumption that the V10F has some over-dimensioned gyros) As far as I understand the functioning of our devices, I cannot believe that the motor alone can do the job to balance us with gyros only working as sensors, it is only my assumption (I work as engineer in the field of vehicle automation), that's why I'm asking you if you have any specific document saying that on our wheels the motor alone is doing this job. So, I might be wrong because it's only an assumption, but 100% of the physic of our wheels is leading me to make this assumption, are you doing an assumption yourself as well or do you actually know for sure what you are writing? If you know for sure can you please share this with us? ;-)

    If it's as you say of course, gyros for signal use insignificant power. But if it is as you say when you lean forward the acceleration of the wheel should be much higher than what it is to balance you with the inertia. Do you have any evidence of the fact that there are no "power" gyros? From what I know os physic and engineering it ssems impossible to me but of course these are just personal speculations, if you have any data I'd be interested, thanks! ;-)

    I doubt that the motor can do such a thing without any "power" Gyro, the gyros you are mentioning are only for the signal, like the ones used to stabilise the electronic cameras, but I doubt that our balance on the Y axis is just kept with the motor...

    It seems that the efficiency of the V10F is lower than the expectations of a lot of people and also lower of many of the competitors with similar batteries...what can be the reason? I think that most of the main manufacturers use equivalent components, could it be that the V10F has some over-dimensioned gyros? Given the attention they are putting into safety (and also the fact that the wheel goes in self protection very quickly) I could expect something similar... A nice experiment would be to go over a bump or a hole on the street with several wheels at an increasing speed and see which one resists better in keeping us vertical vs a face plant; quite an annoying test to do ;-) but I'd bet my cent that there is where all the missing energy of the V10F is going, in some very big gyros...

    This is a bit disappointing I must admit

    2.2.28, I installed it and it worked for a while, then suddenly stopped working...

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    I have the same problem!
  12. Zeno74

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    I had imagined exactly the same, I expect my wheel to have the "quick and dirty" patch with the silicon but not yet the final solution with the battery case...I would like to have an official statement from Inmotion on the situation...

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    That’s what Ialso had read, I just received my with serial 126... I thought I was ok!

    How can it be? how can we keep the balance forward backward? If you have only sensors you have the signal of the inclination but here you need also some power to balance us...

    Sorry guys but tell me if I'm wrong, a wheel has 2 major sources of power consumption, one is the motor and the other are the gyroscopes to keep us balanced. Now the motor needs power to accelerate, to climb hills etc, the gyros need more power when the terrain is rough or when we push hard on the pedals, in my opinion bigger gyroscopes are great because guarantee a better stability in case we ride into holes or bumps, I'd be happy to have bigger gyros, even if very likely they consume more energy. At the end, when we know how many kWH we use per kilometer that we ride, do we know how many are used by the motor and how many by the gyros?
