TROTTER: technical review

TROTTER: technical review


2 rubber plug for the front drive contact The rubber plug are equipped with a nose and trigger under pressure contact of the underlying sensors. The function is contactless. The welds on the aluminum frame are all neat and clean executed In the rear driving contact plate two rubber plugs are also used, which triggers the rear sensors of the TROTTER. The sensor board are screwed below the contact plate. All four sensors activate the driving contact. A SAMSUNG battery with an output of 48 V 4.4 AH is built into the TROTTER. Under the front driving contact plate is the sensor board of the front driving contact screwed. The control plate is installed in the front part of TROTTER. At the same location in the back the battery is installed. This part of TROTTER is protected with a sealant against water penetration. I have now switched on the TROTTER. The driving process is triggered when both driving contact sides are pressed. Forward weight triggers the driving process from the front and vice versa. Here you can see the absolutely solid framework of TROTTER. The wheel is on the left side of TROTTER slightly recessed to accommodate the tire fill. The rim on the right is manufactured very nice and under the outer cover is the driving motor. By unwanted descents from the TROTTER, it develops little scratches which aren’t very noticeable. The front and rear bumpers are well manufactured and fitting in the frame. As a wear and tear part is not the bumper, but behind an inserted single metal plate. The axle is inserted from below into the frame and secured with a fitting and 4 screws on each side. This gives a clean look of TROTTER because you can’t see the suspension while driving. I have unfortunately filmed the power supply upside down. The data is later displayed. The connection box for the charger is located on the TROTTER’s back. Just opposite to the on-off switch. Here, the light flashes red and green, which refers to a charged TROTTER. After switching the Trotter on, 3 light flashs and 3 beep tones signalize the readiness for use. The start of the TROTTER is somewhat bumpy in the beginning, since the board immediately switches to the driving mode, when both driving contacts are triggered. The TROTTER has excellent carving properties and tight curves make fun. Removing the feet of the driving contacts stops TROTTER.

Hello friend, I got this onewheel as well. Do you think it would be possible to alter the settings to allow it to go faster???

Hi, just got my trotter today. Switched it on, tried for a while, but i just can't switch it off… Keep pressing the only switch on button. Does it switch off by itself?

I have had mine for about 7 weeks ,
I love it so much i get more than 40 mins ride on it per charge .
but i always charge it at 40 mins to keep the battery in peak condition as using battery until over 80% to 100% can deplete the battery life recharge cycle ,,
i took about a week just learning how to get onto it ,
and where my feet should go ,thats the hardest part .seriously this guy makes it look easy no way was it easy for me ,ITS SCARY AND EMBARRASSING TOO
BUT
ok once you can get on to it as shown in this video , its easy really ,it just takes that leap of faith .which i did not have ,I DO NOW THOU I JUST GET ON IT AND GO NOW ,lol

ok the function of the totter ,you lean so slightly forward and it goes ,a tiny bit more it goes faster.i have not been at its fastest speed yet ,i have been riding it about 6 weeks .
I STILL AM BEING CARFUL AS I DON'T LIKE BEING THROWN OFF IT ,

Apparently it has a low battery indicator ,where the front lights which are normally white ,when travelling forwards become red and begin to flashing red ,right well i use mine in day light .and i can not see the lights as there on the very front so you can not see these lights when you on top of the board & especially as i am 6'4 tall.they should have put a light on a corner in a up right fashion so you can see it ,also it bleeps when its battery is getting low ,but the bleeper is inside of the metal body of the trotter and you can not hear it when you are on top of the trotter ,also not a good design .they should have put it again somewhere where it could have been heard
also the bleep sounds just like birds churping which there are hundresd of birds here ,so i either think its low battery all the time ,or i think i CANT HEAR IT ,
but i hate things that bleep at me ,so i am very happy about this error
and in my book this is a good thing ,
I LISTEN TO MY HEADPHONES TO MUSIC ANYWAY
so i always carry a tinY kitchen timer and when i get on it i set it for 40 mins
I CLIP IT TO MY GLOVES SO I CAN SEE IT AND when the timer goes off its time to ride it home about another 8 minutes away to charge it up

ok it has thrown me off 4 times all of these times were wHen i was accelerating to go faster ,and 2 of those times were when i was also going up hill by only a 20 degree climb
i have been up 30 degree climbs with no problems going very slowly ,
IF YOU TRY GOING FASTER UP HILLS IT JUST STOPS ,
i have been down hill 30 degree no problems ,
it takEs about an hour may be 1.5 hours to charge it full
to turn it off ,you have to press the button two timeS quickly .BUT then touch the foot pads
if no lightS go on its safe to say it is off
how ever now to the biggest fault and faults of the trotter board .

ok its very heavy ,there are no little wheels to pull it like a luggage bag would have ,so you cat drag it
so you have to pick it up .
there are no handles ,anywhere
so you have to pick it up from the inside of the wheel where you would pump the tyre up up ,right! this is the most dangerous thing i have ever seen !
as if you did not really check the trotter was off ,by touching the pads both ends and making sure the lights did not glow red ,
say for instance you picked it up from this wheel indent and the power was on and the wheel span .it would SERIOUSLY RIP OFF YOUR FINGERS OFF AS THE VALVE WOULD SUDDENLY BECOME A VERY NASTY ROTATING FINGER CHOPPER ,.THIS REALLY IS A SERIOUS FAULT ,TO MY MIND ,..
BUT IF YOU MAKE SURE IT IS OFF ,AND THE FORGIVE THE POINT THAT THEY HAVE PROVIDED NO HANDLE TO CARRY IT ,AND THAT YOU CANT HEAR THE BLEEPS OR THE LOW POWER LIGHTS ,AND THAT YOU HAVE TO CARRY A TIMER TO AVOID BEING THROWN OFF IT RISKING LIFE AND LIMB -COS AFTER IT WOULD GO INTO LOW POWER THAT'S WHAT IT WILL DO !
PLUS AS IT DOES NOT HAVE ANY THING COVERING THE WHEEL YOUR TROUSERS CAN GET CAUGET IN THE WHEEL AND THATS ANOTHER VERY DANGEROUS THING TO MY MIND ,PLUS IF YOU RIDE IT IN ANY MUDDY PUDLES IT SPLASHES ALL THAT UP TH INSIDE OF YOUR TROUSERS LEGS ,AND ALSO ALL OVER YOUR FACE TOO NOT NICE AL ALL ,AND YET AGAIN A BIG DESIGN FAULT.
BUT
i have to end this review with itS the very best fun ever next to the
ninebot mini and the
benchwheel skate board and the
gotway msuper v3 all of which i have and seriously love ,

make sure you always wear full body armour ,helmets and all other rist ankle and other braces and pads you can find ,at all times ,
with all of these things .
watch out for the pot holes go SUPER slow where there are dogs birds kids
THERE SO UNPREDICTABLE ,and gravel or sand never travel through mud ,
YOUR EITHER GET COVERED IN IT OR YOUR FACE WILL HIT THE CONCRETE
these are my tips ,UP TO YOU IF YOU DON'T HEED THEM
ENJOY THE "TROTTER LAND SURFER" THAT'S WHAT I CALL IT ,ITS AWESOME !
SO MUCH BETTER THAN THAT OVER PRICED ONEWHEEL ,
EXCUSE ME HOW MUCH WERE THEY ASKING FOR THAT ONE AGAIN THAT MADE MY EYES WATER .LIKE EVOLUTION BOARDS GREEDY GREEDY ,SORRY I WONT PAY THAT SORT OF CASH FOR A TOY

where would you buy a new battery? I have the feeling mine is loosing capacity now. Can't ride as far as i use to. Thanks for your feed back.

would u also recommend the dandan d1, it's kinda popular too for around the same price, and not gonna lie, it's a little more aesthetically pleasing, but if someone could please, try to get one and make a review, for there aren't many reviews of these devices that aren't the onewheel itself
