  1. Hi I am new to this site and new to Airwheel. Can I ask does anyone have any experience with this machine? My main concern is that the electronic brake mentioned in the user manual does not in effect work as a brake, in an emergency it would not stop you? Is this correct as my supplier is telling me or is this a fault and can it be repaired? Any tips on how to descend a steep slope in safety and with dignity would also be welcome. https://www.airwheel.net/manual/Airwheel_A6s_series_user_manual.pdf
  2. Hello. Does anyone practice emergency stopping/braking? What are some techniques you use? I dig my heels like its a snowboard and lean back. I can stop within two sidewalk squares from 8 mph on a 9b S1. Are there any concerns about damaging the wheel by braking as hard as you can? I would hate to turn myself into a battering ram by pushing to hard.
  3. Hi folks, I was annoyed by running into over-voltage trouble everytime I start with a fully charged battery and have to run downhill. For some time now I used a modified charger with reduced end-voltage, but I wanted to solve the problem by its root. Together with electronics developer friends we created a circuitry that activites a load resistor, whenever a certain voltage level (67.3V) is exceeded. Such a circuitry is called break chopper. It helps breaking any kind of motor/generator drive. I installed high power LEDs (2*100W) into my KS16 as the load resistor and I am fairly satisfied with the function. I also made experiments with halogen lamps as the load resistor, what I show in the video too. Such lamps radiate away the largest part of the braking energy so it has not be spread by heat sinks. Besides the LEDs, in the second part of the first video I use 3*150W /24V halogen lamps as the load, but these seem a little oversized. In the second video I do the same track (140m descent) with 3*75W /24V lamps, what works as well as the 200W LED-load. I hope you enjoy the nerdy experiments and light show!
