Been lurking for months. Received label for 903x late last night/early this morning. I was afraid it was going to be mid June after that last post about delays and almost cancelled my order, but hopefully the wait will be worth it.

RE: Onewheel+ just got better. The new Andromeda is here
@future-motion Very uncool that you would release this on one platform before the other. Why not wait for it to be ready to launch an Android before dropping the update? I think we deserve to know the date it will launch for Android, refreshing the Play store every hour is gonna get real old, real fast!
Learn some patience. Do you have any idea what goes into the creation of these apps? How does holding the iOS release until the Android release help you in any way? That's the most selfish thing I've ever heard. Chill out.
RE: Nosediving +
@JacoNZ I don't want to discount what others are saying as I have had my board nose dive a couple times (luckily i was able to run out the crash without falling) as it sure does suck when it happens and does hurt your confidence for sure.
That said, I'm 90% certain the first time this happened to me it was related to my stance. It was day two or three of owning my board and being used to skating downhill a bit, I took an agressive downhill longboard/skateboard stance with most of my weight on the front foot. I think I simply overpowered the board that time. It'd need a Diesel engine to produce the torque needed to keep my fat ass elevated with all my weight on one side so that was probably my bad.
There was another time that it did the same thing at slightly lower speed and I managed to run it out as well. It's still possible that this was related to my stance, but i know i wasn't attacking it like the prior time.
Both times this has happened to me I have noted the message related to the foot pads not being activated for 5 seconds on my iPhone, so having read these posts, I think I'll check my sensor connections and suggest others do the same. I've been making a conscious effort to stay flat footed and steer with my rear foot.
I wonder if there are "cold spots" on the sensors or if the sensor area as drawn is larger than it is in practice.
I'll end by saying I'm really enjoying his thing and while I'm less than stoked about the thought of it ejecting me again, I have enough fun on it to accept that risk.
RE: Tried Delirium yet?
Been giving Delerium a try in the back yard. It really smooths out off-road by preventing the nose drops like others have mentioned. My guess is that the software is detecting vertical acceleration and preemptively applying throttle as it seems to know it's about to hit a bump, which is exactly what it needed for off-road (I've done a lot of grass riding in mission). In any event off-roading feels a lot more like snowboarding as a result. Turns at slow speed feel a hair different as it keeps the nose up a lot more so it feels "stiffer". I'm really excited to take it to the park but have some stuff to do first.
