Love it.

I didn't have the trolley handle for the ACM16.  I tried to velcro it to my V8 but didn't work too well.

What did he use to connect the two pedals.

i like this idea since ninebot won't make a minipro with enough speed.  I am curious though on what the turning radius is and how easy is it to turn, and how well in words on a horizontal incline.

 

It also doesn't connect the electronics, which seems a bit sketch...

Would it matter in the slightest?

You are controlling each wheel separately with each foot, so the fact that they are independently controlled would be of little concern as long as they were set up closely together particularly tiltback speed and had similar size and charge level batteries.

Of course, if  one was badly out of calibration or one battery ran down before the other and went into tiltback  or you pushed them so hard that one failed but not the other it would result in an interestingly new form of faceplant- just like a Hoverboard it could throw you in almost any direction.

Definately a combination to ride with caution ?

I do have a hoverboard that I use quite frequently around the house and even outside. I wouldn't recommend anyone buy these because the steering is the same as the throttle/brake. Once you get past a certain (slow) speed then the slightest difference between the pedals results in a turn. I'd rate hoverboards up there with "pretty damned dangerous".

That's why the NineBot/Segway miniPro is genius; it separates steering from throttle/brake. Everyone complains about their slow speed (which is still pretty fast compared to jogging) but one doesn't hear of many people crashing them. I'll probably pick one up when they go below $500 as you can ride with someone who doesn't know how to ride EUCs.

Hoverboards are vicious. I've personally known several people with broken bones; one woman broke her leg, her hip, and her arm all in one go. I've personally broken furniture messing around with them, notably trying to step off towards the front (because the instructions say never step off towards the front) and had the hoverboards swipe my feet from under me.
