OneWheel suddenly dropped to the ground...
I was riding in Extreme mode.
I was going very slow down a flat sidewalk, I decided to come to a stop, slowed down, and was nearly stopped and the nose of the OneWheel, suddenly dropped to the sidewalk and I went flying.
I thought I did something wrong getting off although I had yet to even start to get off...then a few hundred feet later...again in Extreme mode and going SLOW on a flat sidewalk, the nose suddenly dropped all the way to the sidewalk and I went flying again.
I was NOT going fast enough for 'push back' I was not turning or carving, I was riding VERY slowly.
I have monitored the speedometer while riding (not recommended although I did a few times), and the board always gave push back at 12-13mph. I was no where near those speeds. I have emailed OneWheel and expect a response. I LOVE riding the OneWheel. And if it occasionally suddenly has a software error and stops auto balancing...well any of us could get killed. I want a response from One Wheel.
What I want is feedback from OneWheel...PLEASE do not make random comments, assumptions, guesses, etc. If you have had the same experience please post. If you know a solution or have heard from One Wheel please post an answer. If OneWheel has responded in this post among the 80+ responses, someone please tell me where. I can't stand reading all the typical forum BS.
Thank you and Ride On!!!
Sounds like user error to me..at low speed you need to be on both sensors .. High speed only one but I still recommend staying in them both..
sounds like your battery died?
I had the same issue, it is not a speed problem, it is a basic OW technical malfunction. From all the stories I suspect the sensors to be the source of the nosedives...
Agreed with @njcustom - this sounds like user error - i.e. foot losing contact with one (but not both) of the sensors. Once speed was reduced below the single-sensor threshold, the board shut down as designed.
Did you wear the same shoes as always?
