@poppavein And - in the washington law - it's defined similarly:
"NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. A new section is added to chapter 46.04 RCW
7 to read as follows:
8 "Electric personal assistive mobility device" (EPAMD) means a self-
9 balancing device with two wheels not in tandem, designed to transport
10 only one person by an electric propulsion system with an average power
11 of seven hundred fifty watts (one horsepower) having a maximum speed on
12 a paved level surface, when powered solely by such a propulsion system
13 while ridden by an operator weighing one hundred seventy pounds, of
14 less than twenty miles per hour."
I wanted to do a test today and see the difference between air temp, motor temp, and battery temp (at the end of the ride): Ride 1: air temp 72, battery 95, motor 94. Ride 2: air temp 75, battery 104, motor 102. I'll continue to watch this at the end of each ride but for now it looks like the battery and motor temps seem to be similar and both are between 20 to 30 degrees higher than the ambient air temp. I live in Phoenix so I'm not sure how this will work for me in the summer. If I'm out riding when it's 110 that would put the battery and motor possibly as high as 140 (I assume that's not good) This might mean I don't get to ride much in the summer :(
@owpete for the last problem, if the board is too wobbly, relax. Don't try to over correct the board just move the board in the way you want it to move, I'm 17 and have been riding the first One Wheel since it's release. When you over correct the board, it wants to then correct itself and move under you. Then you correct it and then it reverberates in this frequency, if you want some tips ride on a rooty trail nearby. It is super technical and it strengthens your ankles, along with your connection to the board.
This is really true. In flying, it's called PIO - pilot induced oscillations.
Looks like your connection to Onewheel Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
