Ozpeter Posted June 28, 2016 Share Posted June 28, 2016 About the only problem I'm finding in using the Mini Pro is the risk of it running away on its own if you dismount unexpectedly. Or if you don't keep a hand on it after an intentional dismount. I've been experimenting with attaching a tether - actually a lightweight dog lead - to the top or bottom of the steering post, which I can have in my hand if I'm in a situation where it would be particularly unfortunate if the Mini Pro escaped - for instance, on a hill next to a major road, where the Mini Pro might end up in the traffic. Has anyone else got any ideas or thoughts on this? Of course with any tether you have to be sure that you wouldn't get entangled in it in an accident and perhaps make matters worse. It would be useful to have an optional "dead man's handle" mode, which would apply the lock mode ("no alarm lock mode") as soon as there was no rider aboard. I notice that in this mode the wheels only turn with difficulty. The device stops self balancing, but it would be better to have it stop itself and fall over than to have it running away into people or traffic.
