    Mod idea

    I saw this topic on General forum, but I would like to get into Z10 specifics. I would love to add this to my Z10, hidden underneath the shell. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_305TRACKER/Samsung-SmartThings-GPS-Tracker.html This tracker is pretty small, so I would guess, it will be possible to find a spot for it somewhere. The thing to solve, would be a charger. Z10 does not include USB port, unfortunately. So it's not super ez-mode. Questions to forum - does this makes any sense? And where would be a good place to put the tracker, and where to get the 5/12 volts for the charging? Thank you.
  2. As people know it is hard to find a way to lock a KS. This is my solution. I drilled a 3/8" angled hole through the pedal from the bottom . The hole is angled so that it come out the existing pedal screw hole. When the lock is in the hole it blocks the screw hole that allows you to remove the pedal. Technically you could still remove the pin from the other side but it would not be easy trying to suck the pin out. I use a full size 10 foot master cable lock so that I can lock two bikes and two EUCs but you could also use a regular full size lock. ( As you can see this is a learner wheel. Five people have learned to ride on this wheel so far. )
  3. Good day to all! Since recently, I became a lucky owner of Rockwheel GT-16. This wheel is a dream for quick ride and all is fine. But after I had to carry the wheel on myself hoping for the last blinking led i found that the battery indicators must be improved. In stock these 10 led indicators that can't objectively give you battery level information. On my previous wheel Firewheel indicator showed level and percentage of battery remain. So i decided to do same small upgrade of indication on my new Rock. Long thought and tried where to place it. But last moment i decided to keep original design and install new indicator in place of one of the stock indicators. I had to cut the body inside, replace the dark plexiglas with a transparent one, shorten the standard display board. Here is my result. Everything took about 2-3 hours + about 3-4 $ for the indicator. I bought it from Ali. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/12V24V36V48V60V72V84V/32845700146.html I will be glad to hear your stories. Who changed something in wheels?
  4. I'd love to see your creation's. Whether it's about looks, add-ons, modifications, enhancement or just for pure coolness.
  5. Here’s my DIY ‘suspension’ cushion to make the ride smoother
  6. This forum post has a ton of researched information and links about the interaction between a battery, ESC, and motor, particularly the role of the power-filter capacitors. The takeaway is that shortening the battery wires will always be better for the longevity of the electronics, as well as potentially improving performance. I may be wrong about this next part, but I also think that most EUC's would benefit from larger power capacitors (in the range of 4700-10,000uF; as opposed to the ~2,000uF found in most) I expect it would be better for the batteries to experience less "stutter" between charging and discharging while the unicycle starts and stops, and that the added buffer of power could actually help it handle bumps better, by providing an extra 10-15 amps in parallel with the battery pack. It'd also be important to pick capacitors with a low ESR or they won't be able to make use of their capacity. I'm considering adding a couple more on to my msuper v2, just on top of the ones already installed. Fortunately the roomy electronics compartments lends itself to this, compared to more "packed" unicycles.

    Padding Mods to avoid pain!

    Hi all, I wanted to share with you the mods I've done to the two electric unicycles I've had for the moment by adding padding to avoid the leg pain we all experienced at the beginning, mainly when learning. Some may have got used to it, however I never did as after a while not being able to keep learning due to the pain, I found the solution, adding good padding (not the one that comes by default, not enough). So on my first electric unicycle, a generic one, I added 2x "bike seat gel protection" (3 Eur each, cutting the part that attaches to the seat), using mounting tape (double sided tape would have been cleaner), here the result: I think it may be the most comfortable I've tried. However, the pedals could not close completely and one got soft after some time and would not stay up. My next padding mod was when I got my IPS Lhotz, again it was painful as it only has a bit of padding on the top of the side and it is not very soft. This time I used the EPE Foam that came on the shipping box of the unicycle, some red plastic from a bag/folder for documents and double sided tape. The result, also comfortable, but not as much as the gel seats. From the video I've on YouTube: Here the state of it after a year, dirty and falling apart: Both the mounting tape and the double sided tape I used were hard to remove, so you better try it a bit before carefully putting it together Now I was looking for a new padding, I found two new options: work knee pads and knee-elbow soft guards/pads. The work knee pads are not flat, so could not really use them and also were not comfortable enough. I decided it was time to try the knee-elbow soft guards/pads as the were comfortable. The result is pretty good and they are comfortable! Let's see once I use them to go to work or for a long MeetUp ride how do they feel. Let us see your padding mods!
  8. Hello, I bought an Inmotion v5+ about two months ago. Now It has already 500km. I'm writing here because I'd like to increase the speed of my wheel but I don't know what is the procedure. Please, someone can help me? I heared that exist an apk to do that, but I would not be able to figure out how it works.. Thank you
  9. The battery of my unicycle died, so I decided to test it. It worked perfectly with Xiaomi's ninebot mini battery. I'll test the range on the weekend.
  10. Just created a DIY Stand for Electric Unicycle v6.0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6mTUHKUFXA
  11. I'm trying a new way to change the cells of my wheel. I bought these cases for 18650 because I do not have a soldering machine. Remove the cells and raise another possibility, which is charge them separately or for easy health check up. The first test without BMS: it works but low power, does not go up hills. Three of the cells are of poor quality, so maybe that's why. Next tests I intend to connect the BMS in the cases.
  12. Here is the parts list (total cost less than $10USD): 1. 2x flat nylon washers (about $1 for 6) 2. 2x flat steel washers (about $4 for 100) 3. 1x 6" section of 5/8" self-stick corner guard (about $3 for 4-8') 4. stubby screwdriver - BYOT See the video linked here and discussed here. The instructions are embedded in the photos. If you have any questions or comments, just ask.
  13. This thread and the companion tutorial (separate topic) are for all you Ninebot One die-hards out there, as well as new riders who have purchased, or still intend to buy One. I realise that many visitors to this site started on this model but have (long) since moved up to bigger/ faster wheels. I'm still holding out for a compelling reason to upgrade, mostly because the NB1E+ still meets most of my needs. It's reliable and durable, and for me, it was inexpensive (RIP @FORWARD california ). Even with two spare batteries, charger adapters, battery cases, spare rims, tires, tubes, torch/headlamp brackets, vinyl wrap, and four helmets, I have barely spent $1000.00 in the past year. That's real value for money. For the areas where I ride most (rough sidewalk, side streets with lots of road damage), it's nearly fast enough and well suited to the terrain, but the range with a single 320wh battery was a problem. So, over the last eight months, I purchased two spare OEM battery packs. I was inspired by the mods published by @SuperSport et al., but wanted a more secure solution. My implementation keeps the battery cover securely fastened top and bottom with all tabs intact. I have been testing this solution for the past month and know it to be durable and effective. A visual tutorial has been posted in the Mod section. Here is a short video demonstrating how quick and easy it is to swap out the battery now.

    Gotway Pcb in a Ips motor

    I have an IPS 101 with the PCB damaged, Is possible put some Gotway pcb in a IPS 16" wheel?
  15. Have recently been bitten by the EUC bug and puchased a Ninebot One E+ couple of months ago. As I'm getting more confident, I am getting bored of the 20kph speed limit I'm getting from the Ninebot One E+ and was thinking if it is possible to swap the control board with this one: https://reseller.alibaba.com/product-detail/16-electric-unicycle-Controller-with-bluetooth_60288223259.html?spm=a2700.7724838.0.0.VsHfbJ Have seen other threads where other users have been swapping their control boards with the one from Microworks purchased from Alibaba. Also wondering if the motor for the ninebot one has to be changed to this: https://wholesaler.alibaba.com/product-detail/2015-New-Products-brushless-motor-16_60237639861.html?spm=a2700.7724838.0.0.XfG3kt What do you guys think? Any other peripherals that have to be changed as well like hall sensor connectors or the like? Or if this hack is even possible? Appreciate your comments. Cheers

    Frankensteining in your C+ into a E+

    Well pretty sure my C+ has a 500w motor, kind of says it on the wheel, noticed it while messing with the controller, Controller it seems is ver 1.3 the same as the E+. Thinking of getting a 320WH battery for the C+ which I like best go figure rides better, for more range, and carry the smaller battery extended trips with the C+ or E+. Now I know I will get the E+ range with the new battery, just wondering if I will get the speed and power of the E+?
  17. As you may have already guessed, this is the Raspberry Pi corner of this forum There is a new board out there that can fit inside the innards of our EUCs with ease.. The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B I have already intergraded two devices into my house, one inside the electrical panel that controls my water heatsink and other stuff using OpenHAB and the other one sits on the livingroom connected to my tv as a media theater system (kodi former xbmc) but doubles down as a seedbox (rtorrent+rutorrent). And now to the thread subject, are you guys up to some geeky mods using a raspberry and our EUCs?? Before attempting to get into the raspberry wagon, there are some things need to pointed out : A way to power these little beast of machines using a pico-psu and/or others. A way to interconnect it with other devices, modding the case for ports, using wifi-dongles, bluetooth or cellular, etc Extra things attached to the Pi so the EUC gets extra functionality Known connectors for data transmission thru the Pi, storage and others. This is by "far" the best subject of discussion if you are up to modding. In my honest opinion i don't just do stuff by hand, a friend of mine does most of the wiring etc but i do the setting up, programming, etc. I'd like your honest opinion on the matter, and if you are interested please leave a comment. cc. @esaj i think you'll love this mod thread And forgot to mention the little brother of the Raspberry Family, the model "ZERO" The little guy that also packs a punch and can fit almost everywhere.. Just look at that comparison guys.. Now start imagining the possibilities..
  18. I'm looking for someone to repair & modify my two Ninebot One+'s. They've been rode hard but I know they can be fixed up. Just a couple of new batteries, pads and tires along with a good cleaning. One of them did get a good solid wreck, nothing serious though. I do want them both modified to the max as well. I'm also looking to get skins made for them if possible. I own a bar/restaurant here in Key West and I want our bar logo put on the sides. Anyone out there up for the challenge?
  19. Hey Guys, Thought I would share. 3D printed a body for my Fasion Micro Works Motor and Controller. I had to print the parts in smaller segments and hold things together with nuts and bolts but so far it's been working great. I took a couple of spills as well and it didn't do too badly. I've recently changed my design a little bit and am in the process of reprinting. Hopefully soon I'll have the new one together. My newer version is a bit easier to put together and is a little less wide for more comfort when I ride. Hope you all like. I can share the STL files if anyone whats to have a go. You just need to make sure you print everything with the Z axis as the direction of least force. So most every part on it's side. I was also running out of filament so the prototype ended up looking like a Jamaican Flag. Regards, Mo More Pics..
  20. Picked up some electroluminescent tape (red & white) from Tinkersphere in Manhattan. Ran the wire in the frame and connected to the existing LED power lines with a 12V inverter and some soldering. They are on when the LEDs have power, but can be turned off. https://youtu.be/_43grjw-YKk

    Vinylwrap my 9bot1

    I had vacation this week and after a weekendtrip abroad I spent the rest of the week at home. I didnt ride at all and I kinda felt the itch to do something with my wheel. So I imagined myself some printed vinyls to stick on the bot. I had a few Ideas so I sat down and had a long talk with GIMP to get some mock ups of designs... I ended up getting something abstract but with color.. Strip it clean it: Roughly cut the vinyl into shape Wrapped and almost back together Thats how it looks tonight Still not decided what to do with the outer ring. Wrapping is very complicated, no straight surface. I think I'll end up getting some plastidip for the outer ring and once its available I'll get a semi-transparent one. Whaddya think?

    Battery pack

    Hey does anyone know where to get a battery back that hooks up to the back of a ninebot one? Something like what's in the picture, which I believe is a battery pack.
