Distance Sensors on bottom



  • @djinn Also, it's not really about tilting the board as i mentioned in order to describe what i meant, it's about changing what is considered the "neutral" angle, and what is considered "user command" (for lack of a better term). What would be changing is not the board tilt angle per se but how the boards interprets tilt angle as user command. In other words, it would only change the tilt angle reference depending on the slope you're riding. Makes sense?



  • @djinn Can't control two orthogonal parameters with only one actuator, though. With only the motor in the wheel, I don't think every possible mix of tilt and torque is possible.

    So I agree with @ggould but was just saying for the current motor on the board, having the board tilt from ~level would only cause further limitations in speed and ability to help you balance. @djinn has your board been delivered yet?



  • @ggould Well, as long as the motor is able to generate the required torque, it should be able to tilt the board. Or have I misunderstood you?



  • @skyman88 No I haven't!
    Alright guys, let's postpone this discussion until I've got experience with that thing...



  • Got my board this morning (stoked!) and went for a first ride outdoor. :)
    Met that situation we're talking about on my very first ride: uphill with obstacles (roots, rocks...), can't climb it because i cannot tell the board to try harder without grinding the nose. Does not feel like the motor is out of power, only that i can't tell it to try harder because of the lack of nose clearance.
    I believe i was in Cruz or Mission. Perhaps Elevated would have helped, or even Delirium if it's more sensitive to board angle...



  • @djinn Definitely try Elevated - that is what it was designed for (uphill pitches). The problem is going down on the other side - you have to switch modes to Delirium or similar as Elevated will now cause a tail drag on descending slopes. With my Andriod app taking forever to reconnect, it is not practical to switch during a ride as I have to stop, wait, etc.



  • @gadgetrider Exactly. That's why I was proposing some sort of auto-elevated mode that detects up and down hills and help level the board with the ground... :)



  • @djinn don't use cruz or Sequoia, at all. They're considered to be dangerous by many of us and make hill climbing more challenging.



  • Delirium, all the time. No problem 🙂
