@RK_d @Sam Ignore him, this guy is on a forum tirade. All he does is complain about what he deems to be design flaws, and how much better his product would be. He whines about how to deactivate the board. He whines about nosedives, even though plenty of us consistently ride over 20+ mph on the board without it occurring because we pay attention to what the board is telling us (or it might have been his "crash" at 0.5mph, which I'm not exactly sure how that qualifies as a crash). Now he is whining about the manufacturer warranties. Please @RK_d stop complaining on these forums and simply sell your Onewheel if you do not like it. Your not gonna be happy until you get all of these boards regulated to 12mph and turn them into Segways, thus ruining the otherwise enjoyable experience for the rest of us.

RE: Help understanding "overcharge"
RE: Why dismount requires getting off the sensor
@rk_d All terrible ideas. Shut off system is fine as is. Also, people aren’t just hopping on these boards without instruction....unless your a bad friend. I have had countless people try my board and I instruct / show them how to operate it. When I received my board, I also read the instructions (mind blowing concept right!).
As for your ideas:
nope. If I’m at a stand still and want to turn the board around 180 degrees so I could ride switch, I don’t want my board shutting down.
likewise, if I’m at a red light or crosswalk and I want to stay on my board so I am ready to go when the light changes, one naturally wiggles back and forth a bit staying balanced. Absolutely don’t want my board to shut off in that situation.
3)....this doesn’t even sound like a coherent solution.
