+1. I had my board shoot off into the street (from the sidewalk) on my very first ride! I was very surprised to find out the board could drive away without pressure on the foot pad. Unfortunately, my board got ran over by a car, and is all damaged now. The first freaking time I ride it! OneWheel ignored this when I brought it up to them. I sent it back to One Wheel to get fixed. they fixed it. I haven't had a problem since, but I definitely have a trust issue with the board, and always dismount with the board facing a building, or a fence, or something besides people or cars.

RE: On it's way back home (For those who ever have to get repairs)
Good to hear some have had good experiences, mine hasn't been so good.
I ordered mine in November. It came about 6 weeks later. It worked for a day, then died. Completely un-responsive mechanically. Sent it back. Now we're up to 3.5 months since I ordered, still don't have a working OneWheel.
I got to say they put salt in the wound this morning when they sent out an email saying they were now shipping immediately from stock. So I would have been better off waiting 3 months to order, really?!?!?
Hopefully I get a working one soon.
