I have paid careful attention to the cold weather warnings from users and FM by not ever leaving it or charging it outside. I rarely ride in the cold for periods more than 20 minutes. I haven't had any problems. However, in this thoroughness of making sure the board was ok I noticed last night that the app was showing the battery, motor and controller were all 32 degrees (F) after a ride. Thinking this must be an error, I waited overnight before charging. There was no change. I then charged it to a full charge but it still reads 32 degrees. This can't be good, no?

RE: Footpad sensor sensitivity to atmospheric pressure variations
I had a problem a while back with the foot sensor. I thought it was user error but it kept happening. I called FM, ran some tests, then sent it (footpad) back and they ran test and concluded it was a faulty footpad.
RE: Low charge / low voltage nose dive on new XR?
Hi bryanhayn I wouldn't necessarily pin it to the low voltage. It could very well have been your riding position or over acceleration but keep in mind it also could have been the front pad sensor. I see a lot of people giving advice pinning this to user error but I had this same thing happen (not on low battery though) to me a month after I got my board which really shook my confidence. So I paid much closer attention to not over accelerating as everyone had advised. My advice on that is stay <16 mph and no Delrium- I don't trust it, at least with my riding style. However, after a while I noticed bizarre engine cutoffs while idling or very slow speeds which I would have written off as beginner's error had I not been riding for a while at that point so I started to pay very close attention to the front footpad sensor. One time I got a warning message on my app that said my foot had been off the front footpad for 9 seconds while traveling 10 mph which freaked me out since I only saw it later after the fact. I got some video of the engine stalls and when it got the point I didn't feel safe on it, I called FM. They had me run some inconclusive tests on it so they had me send that footpad back so they could test it. It turns out it was defective and they sent me a new one. It is SCARY to think that there are potentially more of these defective footpads out there. Knowing this now, I am still not sure if it was me pushing the board to far on that day of my big crash or the foot sensor but I haven't had similar problems sense; either random stalls or nose dives.. knock on wood.
