RE: 200lbs, only got 10 miles out of XR battery
How many charges have you gone through? I noticed my first charge was significantly higher than my second and third charges. I think maybe the battery needs time to calibrate its charge percentage, kinda like how cellphones do. You should give it a few more charge/discharge cycles before you conclude it's faulty.
Also, try leaving it plugged in for 24 hours so the battery can balance itself.
RE: Nosedives due to faulty sensors?
Good question. I was getting a bunch of these messages yesterday in delirium mode on my new XR but it rode fine all day. Then when I got to 13% I took a nose dive. I was going less than 17 mph on flat asphalt. I'm going to try reinstalling the app before I ride today.
edit: Reinstalled the app and took a 2 mile ride in mission mode. Didn't get any sensor messages.
RE: Low charge / low voltage nose dive on new XR?
@Glyph Thanks for the awesome reply! My conclusion so far is that I over accelerated on a low battery. I was at a crosswalk and the light had just turned green. I accelerated fine about 50 feet up to cruising speed then I got the nose dive. Luckily it happened in the city at around midnight, so there were no cars near me. Two nice women helped me up and checked my pupils for dilation but I was fine. My board was still on after I crashed. I rode it home at low speed and it felt like it was working normally.
I'll be buying a helmet today...or maybe I'll just wear my full face motorcycle helmet. I definitely want to get some Fangs but they're always sold out. Is there anyplace besides https://land-surf.com where I can buy them?
Low charge / low voltage nose dive on new XR?
Got my first nose dive today on my 4th charge with about 50 miles under my belt. No road rash, just a big bruise on my hip and a bump on my head. Happened on pavement at some speed between 14-18 mph with my battery at 13%. I was in delirium mode on gemini firmware and didn't feel any pushback; the board just died. I wasn't leaning too far forward. I always make sure to be centered or slightly leaning back. I assume I nose dived because the battery voltage was too low for the given motor load. Has this happened to any of you? I don't know how I can trust this thing to work in the future when something like this happened out of nowhere.
Edit: went to the doctor yesterday and she said I have a nondisplaced left lateral 7th rib fracture. Oh well, I love the OW too much to stop riding :)
