  1. @Brand Don I personally don't own one, but have extensively used 3d printers at workshops and with friends. If you need a cheapo starter printer, the MonoPrice Select Mini cannot be beaten at $200 (make sure to follow the minor heating bed mods required though). If you're looking at a bit higher end, then (in my opinion), the unbeatable printer is the Prusa i3 MK3S (The Mini is also pretty sweet). From personal experience, I can say with certainty that Prusa is the leading edge manufacturer for 3d printers!
  2. Honestly. I've found that jamming the handle down hard is the easiest way to deal with the gyro issue. I haven't had any major issues with it in the past few days (fingers crossed), so I'm hoping that a small spec of something fell out of the lift sensor. If worst comes to worst, take off the case and hopefully you'll be able to clean the gap where the lift sensor is.
  3. My brand spanking new 16x just arrived earlier today. With it being my first wheel and all, I eagerly jumped on and have already logged 15km over the course of 2hrs. After a brief charging session, I was ready for a second go but to my dismay it turned on and didn't start balancing. After pulling a few hairs out, I figured out that the lift sensor is to blame (when disabled, the wheel behaves as normal and freaks out when picked up). Obviously the lift sensor is thinking that I'm permanently lifting the unicycle. The problem is that I don't know where the **Dual Mechanical Switches** are located. Can anyone please provide some help on where the sensor actually is so I can diagnose it and if anyone has had previous issues with the sensor! Any insight would be greatly appreciated! P.S. FW is up to date + EUC World UPDATE 1: Thanks for the speedy replies! I spent another two hours tinkering with it last night to no avail. However, when I turned it on this morning to resume the inspection, IT WORKED! Will continue to take a look at potential issues, but my only thought right now is that perhaps some water got in. UPDATE 2: It is now cutting in and out intermittently. More inspection required!
  4. Awesome to hear! In the meantime though, the current android app is in the .bin format. Whilst this can simply be renamed to .apk, it would be nice for other nontechnical users to have the properly created .apk file.

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    @Mike Sacristan How did you do the cool speed tracker overlay on your video? Is it an app?
  6. I know that @Hunka Hunka Burning Love is the main Canadian EUCist on the forum, but I want to get the opinions of all other parka hooded, maple syrup loving Canadians on the legalities!
  7. Wow! Thanks so much for making this video. I am currently working on getting together a large amount of information about EUC's to present to my MP and this will go right on top!
  8. Hey Guys, I just finished reading up on the definition of an electric bike in Canada, and an EUC almost fits. Here is an excerpt from the Power-assisted Bicycle Laws. Okay. Break down time! (a) The extendable handle is the steering handlebar and there are obviously pedals on an EUC. (b) One wheel is definitely less than three. (c) Technically someone could scoot the EUC like a skateboard using muscular power. Why someone would do that, I don't know! (d) (i) Here is where the problem starts. A KS-16S for example is 1200W, even the Pocket Rocket (MTen 3) has a motor of 800W. (ii) Does not apply, instead uses (iii) (iii) The accelerator controller is the gyro, so when you leans back, the power ceases and then starts to act as the break. (iv) Just lock the EUC to 32km/h in the manufacturer's app. (I know it should be factory limited but Shhhh! ) (e) Another problem, there for sure is not a label on the wheel. (f) (i) You could technically pop a power squat while riding and hit the on/off button. Again, why would someone ever do that? (someone please post a photo of this!) (ii) Disregard as it was an "or" and part (i) was used Canada is very close to having EUC's fully legal as a power-assisted bicycle! What could be some presentable arguments about an EUC having more than 500W and not having a little sticker? Any help in this research would be appreciated!!
  9. Hi All, First off, thank you guys for being such a supportive and awesome group of people. This forum is the exact reason that set my mind to buy an EUC in the first place. Anyway back to my question. I am about to order a KS 16S from Jason at eWheels and thought that it would be a good idea to buy some accessories at the same time so that I don't have to pay for shipping multiple times. Since at the very beginning of my commute there is a 15° downhill that lasts for about 2km, I was thinking due to regenerative braking that I should only charge the battery to about 80%. Should I get a charge doctor, 5A fast charger or something else that limits the amount of charge put into the wheel? Also is there anything else that I should pick up from Jason while I'm at it (spare shell, tube etc...)? Also, what pressure is recommended for KS 16S tire? I am 150lbs and 6"2' and am climbing steep roads. Thanks!
  10. Hello all! I have never ridden an electric unicycle before and am wanting too start riding! I live in a steep mountainous town (some hills are 15°) and wanting an easy transportation type to get me between town/work/home. Here are some things I would want in the electric unicycle. At least 15° hill climb, be able to ride at least 5km on steep hills, be able to go around 15-20km/h, and not easily broken (since I will definitely crash a lot) and be able to carry me (150lbs). I have been looking at buying an EUC for more than a year now and I have finally decided to put down the money to get started! I have been looking at buying the King Song 14D but I need input from the experts (you guys) not unhelpful beings (my alter ego). Also money is not a big problem since I have a part time job (but please keep it below $1500 CAD). Can anybody help me?
  11. Yes. Just found out about eucs and am definitely going to buy one! Maybe I will wait till black Friday (hint hint @Jason McNeil)!
  12. Do you know the grade the King Song 16S can climb/descent though?
  13. EDIT: I have heard people saying that you should buy a cheap EUC to learn on and then get a nice one later. I have also heard you should buy a nice EUC from the beginning and then not have to buy another one later on. What does the majority of you guys think?
  14. Hello all! I have never ridden an electric unicycle before and am wanting too start riding! I live in a steep mountainous town (some hills are 25%) and wanting an easy transportation type to get me to work. Here are some things I would want in the electric unicycle. At least 20% hill climb, be able to ride at least 2km on steep hills, be able to go around 20km/h, be able to ride in slick conditions (is this possible?) and not easily broken (since I will definitely crash a lot) and be able to carry me (150lbs). I am also 16. I have been looking at buying the Inmotion V8 but I have heard some controversial posts about it. Also money is not a big problem since I have a part time job (but please keep it below $2000 CAD). Can anybody help me?
