I'm sure you've seen this, but if not, you'll appreciate this official OW vid:
I could go one better with stepin plates and hardboots
@Kielanders We don’t have anything like this in the UK , however I’ve just noticed on our change.org website a petition has been setup to at least get this looked at in parliament. For UK riders, this is the link http://chng.it/BxV6GFtHgz

FM modified their controller to no longer allow non FM apps to connect to the board.
Just found this out. I was using POWheel for a detailed readout on battery cell status . . . doesn't work now.
If they're going to go the Apple route, trying to create a consumer base of brain dead virtue signaling c##k-$uckers, locking everything down and making it impossible to monitor, experiment, upgrade, or repair your own board, I'm going to be the first one in line for aftermarket parts to build my own board. That day is coming if this keeps up. F##k with your customers at your own risk.
I write this on a heavily jacked-up 2014 Macbook Air running Linux. I gutted this thing because I got it very cheap and had it laying around, to get it to run the way I want. I'd buy new if was was stoopid enough to pony-up the dough for the insult of running what OS(u)x has become.
I'll pay a premium for an excellent product made by an awesome company that respects its customers.
I asked the MotoZoo dealer in St. George Utah if they were going to get any and they gave me the "End of August, but don't hold your breath" line. There is a list and are quite a few already spoken for. To actually get one on the sales floor??? Their only demo is a Plus since the XR's walk out the door about as fast they get them as well.
I used the same lipo 7.4 2s batt for both. I have a bunch of em for rc use laying around . The light strips are usually sticky back but I use hot glue to reinforce . I put all the controllers and connectors inside the plastic underneath . I put my little battery deep in the finger hole box. The strobes suck a bunch of power but if you just use it with simple light schemes you could get about 30-1hr . Could always get bigger batteries,
I haven't had any problems with my FS Pro - but I live in a cold climate.
What area do you live-in, and what were the temps?
I'd get in touch with one of the folks at Flight Fins to let them know.
I'm sure they'd appreciate the feedback, and be really surprised if they didn't help you out.
Orie's the guy that assisted me when I needed product support, he was very responsive.
Right there with you - I still have flashbacks from my youth going down the road on a skateboard, wanting to dodge every crack or imperfection in the pavement, then reminding myself that I'm on a OW.
@Kielanders @a1katie I ride with my right (back) foot almost at the back of the board, maybe 1/2" in, but at 90 degrees to the board. My front foot is angled with the toe forward like in that pic, but my heel is almost touching the fender, again maybe 1/2" in. This is due to my 2 nose dives while I was learning, and my desire to ease the acceleration to help prevent them. I do want to move my front foot forward a bit, but my brain keeps telling me to keep it back since I've not experienced a nose dive since I've been riding this way. Seems to work for me, slower acceleration, but quick stopping, LOL.
@robbret I personally don’t recommend disassembling board until it is time for a tire change or upgrade. I rode all winter in snow and have been caught in three downpours. I recommend allowing the board to dry for a minimum of 12 hours before placing on charger. Also FMs fender has a slight design flaw. The water ends up on the footpads and will cause the grip tape to blister/bubble and eventually peel and the wood to swell and delaminate. Floatlife fenders have addressed this issue.
God Bless Ya', if you've got a way to make 'flail and bail' look elegant (cuz that's what i'm sure I look like), let me know - that was my fallback when the 'Ballerina' (toe-lift) didn't work half the time.
I call my stop the 'F#ck It!'.
The first time I did it I was so tired I didn't want any stopping drama, and just didn't care anymore.
I knew the board could and would hurt me given the chance - so I decided to hurt it first, because that's the only thing the board understands . . . violence.
I just stomped on the rear to stop, knowing I outweighed the board, and I wasn't going to be its bit#h.
Sure, it dragged me for a second, but gave-in . . . our relationship's been different ever since.
