That doesn't sound good! I left it charging for about 30 hours - but haven't had a chance to ride it since.
I'll have to take it out for another blast and wear down the battery to see what happens.
It'd be a right pain to send back for repair if I have to.

RE: Pushback at about 15% battery?
Pushback at about 15% battery?
I had my OW out today for the first time in a few weeks.
My wife was walking the beach with my daughter in her pram, and I was skating along side them. (Along a concrete path - not on the sand!) The total distance is about 4.2 miles, and I've done this several times before.
Most of the ride, I was just doing a fast walking pace... and on the way back, I was pushing the pram!
As we were nearing the end, my OW started sloping backwards - like it does during pushback. I checked the app, and still had 14% battery. When I leant forwards, it would push backwards - until the back was almost touching the ground. This was at about 3-4mph.
I stopped and started again, but it still did the same.
I then switched it off and on again, and it went ok for a minute, and then sloped back again.
Any suggestions as to what happened? As above, I've done this same run at the same speed several times before without any issues. I've got it on charge just now, so will try it and see if it's ok at full charge.
RE: Why is pushback even required?
I've been riding my Onewheel for about 5 months now, although have only covered about 100miles so far. The downside to a new baby is I rarely get out apart from going to work. I live in Scotland, so it's usually pouring rain and freezing when I do get a chance!
When I first get on the board, I'm very careful... but after a mile or two, I find my feet and start going a bit faster.
Pushback to me is simply a warning that I'm going to fast. The nose raises and tells me to slow down. It doesn't unbalance me or change anything... I simply feel my front foot lifting. At that point, I lean back, and I slow down a couple of mph. From this point it might happen several times through my ride - as I just cross over the safe zone.
I know there are guys out there who fight it and carry on accelerating... but I'm too scared of eating the pavement!
If pushback is making you fall off, then you're obviously doing something wrong?
If you push through the pushback and then fall off... then it's your own fault 😂
RE: At the least there's one thing constant in the world today.....
If anyone told me a year ago you'll be out of Europe this time next year and not only that Donald Trump will be President of The United States I would have politely asked them which asylum are you from? Let's get you back there before you say anything else that sounds more bat shit crazy than that!
We're out of the EU - not Europe!
Over 47% of Americans voted for Donald Trump... so although you're shocked by it, almost half of America is thrilled by it!
There's always going to be an unhappy 'half' with these elections.
I was happy that Scotland remained part of GB, then unhappy to leave the EU.
The Trump thing is almost comical that a billionaire buisenessman with no political experience can become President of the USA 🙈
RE: Firmware rollback?
@thegreck I started snowboarding properly at the age of 30, and as a result still have fear. When I get up to 40-50mph I start thinking "what if I fall"... and slow down.
I've been on BMX's since I was about 5 years old, and still do downhill mountain biking. With that I have no fear since I've been doing it since such a young age.
Unfortunately the OW falls into the same category as snowboarding. I have fear!
