  2. Hey All, I have recently made my first EUC purchase of a Solowheel Glide 3 (a week old from Newegg). After some bumps and bruises learning how to ride (both me and the EUC), I feel like I'm getting the hang of it and I'm very happy with my wheel. Unfortunately, a couple of things started happening the past 2 days. For some reason, it seems like powering on the wheel is a bit inconsistent. Sometimes I can short press the power button and it will work, sometimes I have to long press the button and it will work, and sometimes short pressing the button several times will result in the battery icon flickering for a second and then eventually powering on after a couple more tries. My second issue started happening at the same time. I can make changes on the Inmotion App like max speed, pedal horizontal tile, volume and that works fine until I power off the machine. As soon as the bluetooth disconnects from the wheel, the settings are gone the next time I power it on and it appears as though everything is back to factory defaults. I don't believe this was happening when I first got the wheel, but I wasn't making many changes at that time. I plan to contact Inmotion support, but wanted to know if anyone had anything for me to try. I'm pretty comfortable with electronics and up until now, I have tried removing the side casing and disconnected the two cables I found, hoping removing the battery for a bit would reset everything and solve my issues. I look forward to being a part of this community!

    V8 + Dog + Squirrel = First Crash

    So... backstory in an attempt to justify my bad decisions I've been rollerblading for the majority of my life and about a month ago decided to buy a Segway miniPro to commute to the bus stop. After getting the hang of it, I decided it was just too slow to meet my needs and a bit too awkward to carry on the bus. Fortunately, I found a better use for it. It was the perfect speed to teach my Husky to jog next to me so she can get more of a workout than our usual walks. This had been going extremely well and the Segway's balance and control made it easy to control her 'personality'. After doing a ton of research, I decided to purchase my first EUC (V8) and learned how to ride in a few hours. After the second day, I felt comfortable enough to ride from the bus stop and back. After a couple of weeks of riding, I was starting to feel extremely confident on the wheel. Around the same time, I had been taking my pup to the park and Segway'd around a low foot traffic area to tire her out. Again, this had been going really well and I was very proud of my girl. Naturally, I realized 10-11mph was not enough to get my pup running and now I had all this extra power with the V8 and I was confident in my riding abilities. I had already taken her on a short ride with the V8 around my neighborhood at a slow speed and she acted the same as on the Segway. After a few laps around the park on the Segway, I decided to take her on the V8 to really get her running and to tire her out (only wearing my wrist guards). She was doing extremely well and we were almost done for the day when I decided to take her around the park for a final lap. At this point she was trailing behind because she had already gotten a good workout in. And then... a squirrel ran across the sidewalk in front of us and my pup kicked it into gear and sprinted toward the squirrel which gave me a huge yank to the left going around 15mph. I held onto the leash for dear life and unfortunately overcorrected and fell off the wheel on the right side and skidded several feet on the sidewalk. Luckily, because of my rollerblade experience, I bent down when the instability hit and fell forward. My wrist guards took the brunt of the fall and I managed to escape with a sore knee cap and a scrape on my forearm. Lessons learned: Wear full protective gear, especially when you're doing something new or have something like a dog that you can't have full control over. When taking your dog on your EUC, ensure that at minimum they have a good call back in case you need to let go of the leash to save a crash. When she took off after the squirrel, I should have dropped the leash then called her back. Running your dog on your EUC is a bad idea unless you're willing to put in a ton of time to train your pup and yourself. Otherwise, this is a danger to you and your pup. There were many times during training on the Segway she wanted to walk in front of me and stop, which could have resulted in getting hit if this was at higher speeds. If you're like me, you'd rather hurt yourself than your pup so you end up taking spills to avoid hurting your pup. At some point during my fall, I let go of the leash and my pup went after the squirrel. Attached is a photo of where she ended up after I dropped the leash.

    Where is ride data stored?

    Hi, this may have been asked before, but not seen anything. Where is the ride data stored, is it stored in the V8 or do I have to use the inmotion app while I'm riding to be able to analyse it later? Thanks.
  5. Today I was riding my V8 on my daily commute like I've been doing it for 2 months. I was around 15mph on asphalt flat terrain, when suddenly the inmotion v8 gave up and I went body against pavement. It didn't play any different warning sound it just suddenly didn't do anything. As I've had a couple events where the wheel slowly titled completely and now gave up totally, is there a data logger where I can retrieve the wheel facts of the issue ?? I really want to know if something failed, overheat, frozen, over-speed. I can't really trust it, this thing might be trying to kill me. Maybe it has a buggy firmware, this device must have a log memory that logs every event and then later be retrieved, just like a tesla car. Facts: As I dragged myself to grab it out of the road I noticed the blue lights were still on. Temperature this morning 30 degrees Fahrenheit. About -2 celsius. Battery was probably around 92%. I do full charge at home and I had only ridden about 1.5 miles. I've set its max speed to be 19mph so the wheel beeps at 16mph and start tilting back. Not sure if it's even possible to go to 19mph as it plays the warning sound and tilts back. Yes, lots of cuts, lacerations and pain. Lucky is winter and I was riding with a big jacket. Not sure if I had any major complication as I'm still waiting for the pain to go away. Please let me know how do you guys troubleshoot falls, if I can retrieve logs it will be very useful.
  6. Hi, I'm looking for a way to transfer sound effects from the application to the vehicle but the actual application only allows voice recording. Someone knows if there is a way to do that with the application or another way to communicate and transfer files to the unicycle? Thanks in advance, David

    The V8 and the heavy rider

    eWheels has the V8 at a tempting price. I get the feeling, however, that it might be problematic for my 245 lbs riding weight. I currently have a Ninebot one E+ and it does everything I want except a little more speed. I would like to cruise at 15 mph with no tiltup. Also a little more range than the 8.5 miles I can get commuting with the E+. I have no problems climbing the hills I encounter on the 500w E+, so I was thinking the V8 with a 800w motor should at least do as well?? I get the feeling, however, that might not be the case? Jason? Any V8 riders out there at or near my weight?
  8. I am slowly starting to begin my EUC training on my Inmotion V8, but I really like suggestions to protect my wheel. I got some foam to pad up the wheel to avoid the wheel to get too damaged. But I am struggling to understand where this foam will do the most good, Obviously, you could cover the hole wheel but, in the end,, I don’t have that much foam and it sort of obscure the pretty design of the wheel. The other part why my learning curve is extended to be a bit longer than normal is I have medical condition (psoriasis arthritis and osteoarthritis) with my lower back, hips, knee and feet that have put me off sports and general exercise. I has come to a point I have to start thinking: going to work, home to tv/computer and then sleep, repeat cycle, have to change. Hence the EUC comes into play. I am pretty sure the EUC over time, will help me achieve what I look to get out of my EUC. And on the up side I can use it to commute to work (only 1.5-2km each way). So back to the original question: protective rookie foam. I have the original cover too, but I am thinking to put foam on the red markings. As for a laugh, here is the result of 5-10 min training in basement, This is practically my first ride on it: http://youtu.be/c1nr3l52HI8 Note: I found it was easier without the baggage strap attached to wheel, but I don't have a video of that. suggestion clear pic you can draw on if you like

    New to EUC

    Hi Guys, I need your help deciding on a wheel. I am from Australia and I have been researching this for quite sometime now. I can't seem to make a decision. Gotway seems to have the best capacity in the market but the worst quality control. With all the reported incidents on youtube; I do want to get the best, sturdiest, off-roading, long rage, highest wh out there but I dont want to die. Now I have seen many people on youtube crashing with Gotways without even reaching half its speed limit... ACM 2 giving up at 15mph after hitting a minute bump on the road. I sense a lot of frustration in many videos with gotways (ACM 2 with a wrong footplace installed). I need someone to give me an honest opinion on what is the best and safest out there for what I want bearing in mind that I dont plan on going any faster than 45 km/h - 96 kg weight
  10. Im three months new and riding fairly confidently, i am moving towards riding on one foot. But as soon as i try to lift the foot. I get the wobbles

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT

    Thank you for your support, all guys! Inmotion team devoted to the new euc since Feb, 2017. We planned to release before 2018, but we found something need to be correct, sorry for making you waiting for a long time, our new euc will release before next summer, thank you every one!
  12. I went back to the automotive proving grounds today and spent 2 1/2 hours setting up drones and cameras while riding up and down their 20% grade hill. I took along the whole family of wheels that included the Gotway ACM 1600, KingSong 16S, Inmotion V8, Inmotion V5F+ and my little 10" Gotway Luffy. I have never went down the 20 % grade, only up it a few weeks back, so I was a bit nervous at first but after practicing dozens of times on the ACM 1600 earlier in the day it became natural. I was able to transverse both the 20 % and 30% grades with the ACM that allowed me to gather temperature data that I will share later. The ACM 1600 did outperform the other wheels ( including Luffy ) but that was to be expected given the excellent torque and power the ACM possesses. I apologize for the background noise during the first few minutes as they were cutting grass on the complex.
  13. A few months ago, I decided to sell my Gotway 820wh Msuper and ACM to upgrade to the 1300 ACM and the MsuperV3s+. I put my order in at ewheels and have been eagerly awaiting their arrival. A few weeks ago, I started reading about all the drama with the Gotway problems you all have read about I'm sure. With these safety concerns, I really started getting worried. I learned to ride on a Kingsong 14c and wanted to buy a ks18, but they weren't available at the time. I opted to buy the Gotway wheels and really enjoyed them. I have 3 of my children that are proficient riders and we enjoy our trips together. Not wanting to put my kids on wheels I knew were having issues, a week ago I decided to cancel my Gotway order and Jason was kind enough to let me switch my order to the KS16s 840wh and KS18s 1680wh arriving in a couple of weeks. Reading about @Marty Backe and his latest problem and fall on his Msuperv3s+, I'm glad I made the switch. (Marty, I hope your wrist feels better...makes me mad that Gotway puts out this stuff and lies about having it fixed) I know Kingsong is not perfect, but I figure it was time to make the switch. I'm sure I'll miss some things about Gotway, but I'm looking forward to giving Kingsong a try again. I'll make sure I give my opinion on How Kingsong is treating me. Matt

    Inmotion v8

    someone wants to buy a used inmotion v8 2.5 month, and warranty ...
  17. I shot a 4 minute video of an interview I had with Echo's Dot today just to see how smart Alexa was about electric unicycles. I asked a few off the wall questions first just to warm her up Sorry but I could only conduct the interview in English! She did not know what an electric unicycle was but did know about the Segway. She also had a funny comment when I asked her about 'Tilt back' and 'Idling'! Questions if you can't hear: Alexa , Hello! I have a few questions for you: 1. ALEXA, WHAT'S THE MASS OF THE SUN IN GRAMS? 2. ALEXA, WHAT is the 3 rd law of robotics? 3. ALEXA, WHAT is Firmware? 4. ALEXA, WHAT Is an Electric motor? 5. Alexa, What is a battery? 6. Alexa, What is Tilt Back? 7. Alexa, What is an electric unicycle? 8. Alexa, What is a segway? 9. Alexa, What is a Self Balancing Unicycle? 10. Alexa, What is Idling? 11. Alexa, what is a gyroscopic? AlexA, Goodbye!
  18. As some of you might know I recently started my EUC adventure. After some consultation with you guys I ended up purchasing the Inmotion v8 because it combines an 800w engine (I'm a 90-95kg guy) with a decent battery pack (480wh) and still relatively light (14-15 kg) at a good price point. Short version (2 main lessons and conclusion): Respect low battery, really take it easy when battery drops below 20% Don't try to show off to friends by speeding away Awesome wheel that also works for EUC starters. Long version: So keep in mind this is my first wheel ever. After packing it in the sleeve and adding some extra protective padding I started learning inside my house for about 10 minutes going backwards and forwards trying to get the balance on the wheel. After that I moved outside with some more room but still have something to grab on to to stabilize myself. Within an hour of practicing like this I managed to keep driving slow rounds on the machine and feel confident enough to take it for a small spin on the bicycle path. Here I noticed that when I was going faster the wheel started wobbling from left (\) to right (/), as it turns out this was mostly due to inexperience. After gliding like 50km it's already noticeably less and I'm quite confident that with time it'll disappear completely. The next day I took the wheel into the city center and some grocery shopping totaling another hour and a half of driving. Still some wobbling but already getting better. Everything went very smooth and I'm quite content with the way the wheel was handling the urban obstacles like speed bumps, cracks in the road and (slight) bridge inclines. I don't have a frame of reference for other wheels but the acceleration is still great for a guy my weight. I must admit that after these rides my calves were telling me to take it easy, probably because I'm not used to EUC yet but I also think the hard plastic pads on the v8 are partly to blame. I actually added some extra padding here to make it a bit more comfortable to ride, and even though it helps a bit the jury is still out on whether or not I'll be comfortable on long rides. During the weekend (total distance ~25km) took my wheel out for a small spin, when I left it still had 23% battery, so I thought I'd drain it a little bit more before charging. As it turns out this was not the best idea ever. After driving for 1,5 km I started getting warning sounds from the machine, so I decided to turn around and head back home, stood still to check the battery and it was still at 19%. I didn't get my cellphone out to check the battery % when actually driving (stupid me) so I figured I would still be fine to get home. But apparently the v8 thought that I was leaning foward too much and decided to do aggressive tiltback to force me to stop. Still inexperienced as I was I slowed down but because of the aggressive tiltback I actually steered a bit right at the end cause my wheel to leave the asfalt and fall of a 10-15 distance to the grass but not before getting scratches on the pedal on one side. The protection I put on the machine did not prevent this, so yeah first scratches are the hardest, so better to get them in fast, right? Basically shouldn't have pushed the machine so much on the empty battery because I managed to drive back the 1,5km without any problems whilst going 15 km/h. Learning curve, when it starts warning you on low battery really take it easy . During the weekdays I took out the wheel for a number of testdrives, it turns out I can actually get to the trainstation in less than 7 minutes, which by bike takes at least nearly ten minutes without actually putten the bike away. Very promising for my commute starting next January. Yesterday I took the wheel over to some of my friends since I was so enthusiastic about it. And I couldn't help myself showing off the awesome acceleration of this wheel. So even though I should've known better I leaned forwards more than I usually do ending in.... as you experience guys probably know.... a cutout of the machine (without warning). I was really happy to be wearing wrist protection and very unhappy that I thought I wouldn't need knee protection (as they are now pretty banged up. So especially to the starting drivers a note that showing off your wheel to your friends is cool, but nearly faceplanting definitely isn't (is cause for a good laugh though). Overall I'm really happy with this unit, the learning curve, top speed and stability for a guy my weight is awesome. One thing I haven't mentioned is the amount of attention people are giving me, EUC are not that common in the Netherlands but a lot of people turn their heads to see what's going on, ask what I'm doing, make sounds of general approving the awesomeness of driving this wheel. So be warned, driving this unit might get you attention . I also just received my charge doctor, so I'll be showing you some stats from the chargecycle and mileage soon. I'll also keep you guys posted on how the next 100-150km goes and how it works out in my commute from January.
