F-wheel iCarbot Hoverboard Scooter – REVIEW

➜ iCarbot: http://amzn.to/2dsFAf9

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

Main Specs:
-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.

that’s so stupid you may as well buy a self balancing scooter which only cost 299$ it has bigger wheels and only two it’s faster and more battery life and easier to ride it’s way better than that.

First

fwheelscam says:

F-Wheel is a shady company that knowingly sells defective and garbage quality merchandise to unsuspecting customers. When you try to contact them and work things out with them they refuse to comply and will even not respond to you if they feel like it. Read about other customers as well as our story and how they stole thousands of dollars from us at http://www.fwheel.org

justjohnny05 says:

The battery is sent separately so that the main unit cant get into the country without customs making sure it wont explode.Did you not realize that they made too big design flaws that they could easily have avoided? 1. The drive wheels turn freely all the time they should not do this this only makes it more unstable and harder to use, get on and off of and makes more dangerous for some riders the wheels should be in a non moving fixed position and only move when powered up by the controller to do so. 2. if the rider steps or falls off the device can keep going for quite a long distance making it a dangerous projectile this could have been avoided if it had a dead mans kill switch so that the second rider weight is lifted it cuts power to the wheels and then see 1. above they would stop turning.

PHANTOMST4R says:

Ishshal Manocha says:

I’m might think of getting a hover board and do you think this hover board is better or a Xiaomi nine bot, because I want something that is good in quality. So which should I get?

AyaanSamad says:

You should get a MBS mountain board and do a review on it! It looks different
