I noted today when breaking really hard, that I got the 80% power beeps from a fully charged EUC. As I've had two instances when the 80% power warnings have led to tilt-backs, I wonder if that could happen while breaking? I really hope it can't... @Yi Chen or @陈小杰 is it possible to get a tilt-back (tilt-forward?) while breaking? If so, I would suggest changes in firm-ware. If you're breaking hard enough for the alarm to trigger, you're doing it for a reason. In my case it was a BMW-driver that came into a roundabout about 15mph faster than legal, almost moving me down in the process. Only fast reactions and power-breaking put me behind him rather than under him... I suppose it isn't an issue, just checking.
skullforger posted a topic in General DiscussionHi, This week, I bought an IPS 121/T350 from GoWheel.com (excellent service btw). It is my first EUC. After a couple of hours of intense practice (steep learning curve!), I am now able to ride it more or less ok. The only thing is, I seem to hit the tilt-back and beep limits quite soon (flat and smooth road, no hills, low speed). This may have to do with the fact that I weigh 120 kg, but I'm not sure. From what I've read on the forums, the max speed of the IPS 121/T350 is 19.9km/h. Is this for a person with normal weight, and will it be lower for a heavy weight guy like me? Also, does the tiltback and the bleeping start when a certain current is drawn, or a certain voltage drop is experienced (which would be safest), or is it just speed-based? Also, what is the difference between tilt-back and beeping. If I get the tilt-back, I can still push a bit harder until the beep. Is it safe to just stay below the beep-speed (which seems at least 5km/h faster then when the tilt-back kicks in)? So how do these things work: 1- heavy people just reach the limits sooner and can't reach the normal max speed of 20km/h because everything is limit based? 2- it is speed based and tilt-back kicks in at predefined speed and then bleeping also at max speed of 19.9 km/h Thanks a lot.
