Do large battery (1,300wh and up) EUCs require special rider handling?

I bought a 1,600wh Gotway Monster recently. On two occasions while either walking it, lightly holding it or 'parking' it the EUC fell out of the upright with subsequent wheel spinning and (conservation of momentum) and body/shell spinning (plus some bouncing) in the opposite direction before turning off. A WheelLog entry says the wheel hit >50 kph before the EUC turned itself off. Damage was limited to a few new scratches.

On more than one occasion while stopped and controlling the EUC with one foot it tended to start to tip itself over, requiring that I grab it quickly with one hand.

As a result of three unexpected tip oversĀ  I use a more deliberate and firmer grip (than on my first few rides) while walking it or parking it against a surface (EUC turned on) and I'm more conservative with one footed control when stopped.
