This is the iCarbot Hoverboard scooter from F-wheel. It’s small, lightweight and portable.
The features I like:
-Semi-easy to learn and ride, kinda similar to the old hoverboards (though turning can be difficult, see below)
-You can remotely control the scooter from your phone or tablet. Could even be used like a remote dolly for your camera shots.
-Clean, minimal, slim design. Easy to carry – fits in a backpack.
-Swappable battery pack design is a nice feature if you’re rolling for miles
-Scooter weight: 12 lbs (5.5 Kg)
-Max carrying load: 264 lbs (120 Kg)
-Max speed: 7.5 MPH (12 km/h)
-Max distance: ~ 9 miles (15 Km) (plus swappable batteries)
-Charge time: 2.5 hours
-Max uphill gradient: 15 degrees
-Waterproof rating: IP54
My major complaints:
-Driving and turning can be very frustrating and difficult. It’s the *inside foot that causes to turn to that side, while the old hoverboards were opposite to this; it was the outside foot causing the turn. If you’re confused, here’s an example – on this iCarbot, if you want to turn left, you shift extra weight onto your left foot, and you turn left. This can be quite unintuitive, and *Should* be opposite.
-Small hard wheels, easily gets snagged, caught in cracks and bumps, can’t off-road. Only rides okay on smooth flat surfaces
-During my filming, it was +90°F outside, and after 10 minutes of scootering, the iCarbot started beeping and the app showed it was overheating. I had to turn it off and let it cool to keep riding.
-Price is pretty expensive for this little scooter.
