Mten3 First Impressions / Review - BUY ONE NOW!!!

The point of this "wheel qoute" was to point out that (as you correctly said) there really isn't a good, sound reason for the beeping when a wheel falls on the side.

This is one of those typical things that people do/implement because "they think it should be like that", aka "you make an error, so an error sound must play", without thinking it through. I don't think anyone has ever had a wheel drop on its side without them realising it.

I'm going to collect my ongoing thoughts about this wheel on this page. I just finished my range test and feel that I can offer some solid opinions about this wheel. BTW, I'm somewhat of a Gotway fan

Although I have not had the chance to do a full range test yet,I think I have to concur with @Marty Backe's take on this wheel,this thing is freakin awesome.Although it is a little bigger than the ori

I got my Mten3 today and rode it for about 20 minutes. My impression is very good, I support all the Marty's statements about this wheel, although I can't say that I'm as exited as Marty   What I like

Yep, the "Gotway dance" spinning certainly can't be missed. One possibility (like I mentioned in the bad post) is that it's some kind of standard feature of their hardware, so they just use it because it's there and everyone else does.

Marty, it seems like you are running the little guy a little faster than before.  I was beginning to do the same before I had that unfortunate encounter with the pothole.  I might have to start wearing a little more armor after I get mine operational again.

I am riding it faster here, thus I"m wearing all of my protective gear. If the road/path conditions are good this is a fun wheel to book along on :D

You're still waiting for a replacement tube?

Yes, it's killing me!  I love that we can get these incredible cutting-edge products from China, but it hurts my heart that American enterprise hasn't stepped up and we have to wait for weeks every time we need parts.

This is my endurance test with mten3.

25 km- avg.20 kmh-stop around 20% of battery. 70kg "pilot"

Top speed gps 28kmh (app 35,1kmh!!?)

Cool log. That's a big journey for a little wheel. 

Do you own any other larger wheels? If so, how was the ride compared to them. There is much debate about the mental concentration required to ride a 10" wheel over long distances. Was it harder work? would you do it again?

Thank you. I use the wheel mainly as a recovery when landing away from the car with paragliding (we call this ROLL & FLY) as well as for fun. Over 20 kmh requires a lot of concentration, better driving less than 20 kmh. Of course I will do it again.

Hove not bigger wheels because is a problem to fit them in my harness (for flying).

As a newcomer to this thread ( I.e. I just now read it) I too was momentarily taken aback by @meepmeepmayer response to @Psices  question about lying down beeps ( a very good question btw.)

but then I got it and genuinely laughed out loud.  Very clever.  My wheel tells me that ALL THE FREAKIN TIME. Even funnier in my head,  as @meepmeepmayer is German and every German man Speaking English sounds like Arnold Schwarzenegger, in my head.

So, "hey, Asshole  Stop doing that" as Arnie is even funnier.  Infact, if we could upload speach files to our wheels, I'd Have that as my, completely unnecessary, " you've dropped me on my side again" message.

@Psices. If this forum was an actual place, I'd be here 24/7. Generally the nicest, most helpful bunch of guys on tinternt.  I mean where else will someone make a custom video just for you? Way ta go @Marty Backe. Even though he MADE me buy a Pebble watch. ?

@Psices stay, enjoy, chat, learn, teach, assist. It's all good in da hood.

That's too much???.  I think I pulled a muscle in my side listening to that.  ???

i especially like the "too fast " message. If I'm not mistaken, that was Arnie himself wasn't it!  I'm visualising all the Gotway riders who have been thrown down the road when they blew through to top speed limit.  Imagine hearing that, just as you get launched into ultra low earth orbit ! ??  not to say that other brands aren't suitable lunch vehicles ?

PRICELESS !! I want It, but I don't want that two wheeled wheelbarrow 

 

come on manufacturers, give us ALL The ability to modify our warning files.  I can think of a few replacements mother warning horn ?

@meepmeepmayer's foul language :P was his attempt at humor (I got a laugh out of it :D). He was simply translating the annoying beeping into words, if the wheel could talk. I guarantee you that he was not referring to you.

 

He kinda sounded like an asshole when he used the "I'm a <x> year old retired <job> and <I deserve respect>. I see that a lot with older people, the idea that respect should be given to them because they've survived 60 or more years on this earth and not through any present skill they have.

I respect @meepmeepmayer statement of "hey asshole, stop crashing" because it is precisely correct. This is not some woman's website where we talk about our feeeeelings being hurt 'cause of what someone did, ow ow; EUC's are quite dangerous, and so when @meepmeepmayer tells you to stop being an asshole, he is absolutely right; your past experience counts for nil when your wheel (and your face) hits the pavement.

You need to be able to post something and people like @meepmeepmayer call bullshit on you (he has to me, several times, thank you kindly) without even the slightest trace of emotion, 'cause it's just feelings compared to the rock-hard physicality of hitting the pavement.

And those goes for the rest of you; I'd expect any man here to call me an asshole when I am being an asshole (which I probably am being on this post, yes yes I know).

You can always count on @LanghamP, our resident asshole, to provide an unfiltered response. ;)

That seems consistent with mine. I've gotten ~29km at 15% battery and my riding weight is ~70kg.

That is a very cool use for the wheel. It actually seems perfect. Have other paraglider pilots seen you like this, and has it made them want to learn how to ride an EUC?

Great video, all those cuts to different scenes really gave a good feel for the ride.  More dynamic feel compared to just using a stick, and the long shots are interesting.  Cool U-turn also:)

At present, only one friend does roll & fly but all my flying buddies have shown interest. 
Some of them have also tried my wheel.

 

The wheel always catches a smile

My V8 also allows this.

In theory ...

In practice it's so buggy that I never managed to replace any sound.

Want to see the roll&fly :) 

Saw some gliders last week when I was on a mountain in Switzerland. On the Niesen mountain if you happen to know that one.

This guy carries a ninebot with him.
