Foot sensor failing on V2
I've noticed that every time I ride I'll get a warning on the app about a failed foot sensor at xx mph. Also when I come to a stop and wait for a green light or what ever, I can feel the motor cutting in and out and sometimes will drop the board on me even when I have my foot planted firmly on the sensors.
Anyone else experiencing this issue?

@jefflynn I also get a fair number of notifications saying my foot disconnected from the sensor, but have not had any issues with board performance and it hasn't cut out on me. If coming to a stop, your speed goes below .5mph (EDITED) and your foot is not on both sides of the sensor, the motor can turn off, that's normal. Misspoke earlier.
It shouldn't be normal to cut out if standing firmly on it while sitting still. I've even had it drop on me after hopping on and then trying to take off. I went flying forward of course.

@jefflynn - I agree with you. IF you are firmly planted as you say, it should not shut off while idling.

in my experience (OW+) it is not common to get warnings or motor shut offs when standing firmly on the board. I have never had the motor shut-off inadvertently while idling.
in fact, it's probably a little more "stable" in that regard than OW, which is why so many folks had slight difficulties with the dismount.

@jefflynn I had a similar problem on my v2. Check the connectors from the pad to the board. Mine were loose causing intermittent problems.
@SkyPilot Good idea, I'll check those out.

@jefflynn Yeah this sounds wrong. If the connections seem fine, you probably have a faulty sensor.
