Onewheel XR stranded me at the park

  • No gunk in the power socket that I could see before it went back to FM. Good thing is they already fixed whatever problem it had and my board is due back to me via FedEx 3/23. Blazing fast turn around, can't wait to do some more riding.

  • @danner Bummer about the issue but glad to here FM did their best to quickly address!

    Happy shredding or floating, which ever it is you do.

  • I have to say this is the fastest I have ever had anything repaired and returned to me. Board seems to be working as it should now.

  • @jonnyk
    Nice pun! Get it! Pushback....

  • @fruitygreen I have to agree about QA testing, my experience is 5 out 16 OW+ "died" within minutes of being switched on and only solution is to send back to factory. Seems crazy when FM has to pay a lot to ship them back to the factory and then back overseas when fixed. If they just invested in some QA testing it would save them a fortune and make their customers much happier.

  • @mrbrett131060 use the search in the onewheel owners group on Facebook. Much discussion on this. Links to buy them in different countries

  • @danner I'll bet 5 burritos that you were on the old firmware and didn't update it before you rode. The first few boards that shipped out had an error in the firmware that would overload the controller module if you stresses the motor too much. They'll give you a new controller module, update the firmware, and your board will arrive back as good as new.

  • @jeffmccosker Well you just lost 5 burritos because I was one of the first to receive mine and there was no firmware update at that time. The good thing is that the OneWheel team took care of it right away and they also took care of a Bluetooth issue I had. Everything has been smooth sailing since then and no complaints.

  • @danner you owe 5 burritos. The bet was that you were on the old firmware...NOT that you failed to update. Since you stated you were one of the first to receive and their WAS NO firmware confirmed his suspicion. Enjoy your date, you two! 😂

  • You guys, I'm so pumped for this burrito date!

  • @capodeltoro Actually, you forgot one of the most important words in that first sentence, AND. I'll let it slide though, I'm having so much fun on my Onewheel I'd probably buy you both a burrito just for the hell of it. I have a wife and kids though so we need to keep this whole thing platonic.
