I know, I know, in general I'm very risk averse, but I thought it just wouldn't realistically do that as long as you're in control. Thanks for your answer.

sharp turns on OW+
I'm new to OW+, had it for some 20 miles and today I was practicing carving at some medium speeds and as I lean forward and backwards (to turn left and right, i.e forward wrt to the body, not the direction of movemebt) I can do it, but if I try to make sharper turns, my phones starts vibrating that I'm loosing pressure on the footpads. How is one supposed to do that?
Also, I'm right handed and seemingly right-footed (when I slide in socks I have my right foot forwards, when I play soccer I play with right), but I just find riding goofy much more natural. It was what I instinctively did when picking up the board for the first time and yesterday I tried for a while the other way and it just felt very weird. Should I be worried?
Flying off OW+
I had ow+ for 3 days now and today was my first bad fall. I had it on mission, was going some 10 mph on a completely flat pavement, put the front foot down to accelerate fast and then the thing just stopped with me flying off. Is it possible to lean forward so much that the motor can't keep up, the nose touches the ground and you fly off? Because I could not find any other explanation for this, there was no bump and I had my front foot firmly on the pads.
