1. How easy to use hoverboard?
The best hoverboard only requires a little training to be perfectly mastered. Balance is the only concept you need to manage to be able to use your hoverboard. Once lit, all you have to do is put your hoverboard on the ground and climb on it. By leaning your body slightly forward, the gyroscope will move the device forward. As you lean back, the hoverboard will recede. In general, it only takes a few minutes to get the hang of it. The responsiveness of the most modern quality gyroscopes provides a more comfortable feeling and a more intuitive device response. No physical effort is required to use your hoverboard. You can buy the Go Kart Conversion Kit for Hoverboards to convert normal hoverboards into hoverkarts, before buying, you should read the article “What is a Hoverkart?”.
2. How to use a hoverboard?
It will only take you a few minutes to learn how to master your new means of transport. When you receive it at home or buy it in the store, the first thing to do will be to fully charge its battery. Most devices fully charge in 2 to 3 hours at most from the mains. Don’t worry: all models are sold with their connection cable.
Once charged, your hoverboard is ready to take you on an adventure. Place one foot horizontally on the chassis, leaning well in the center of the foot space. Keeping a position parallel to the ground, put the other foot on the other side. Slowly tilt your feet to press the front of the board, the sensors will sense this measured and directed pressure, and the hoverboard will begin to move forward.
By applying more pressure, the speed of your machine will increase. If you put your weight on your heels, and therefore on the back of the chassis, your hoverboard will follow your directions and go in reverse.
To maintain your hoverboard, and increase its life expectancy, it is best to avoid roughing it up or dropping it. Clean it regularly with a damp cloth and an old toothbrush to prevent deposits of residue and dust from damaging or obstructing the rotation of the wheels. A carrying case is an accessory that will make the transport of your hoverboard more practical, and limit the risk of scratches.
3. How does hoverboard works?
The hoverboard, also called a gyroboard, is made up of a body that will support the feet of its user. Two drive wheels are installed on either side of the central chassis, supporting the user’s weight while allowing movement.
These are sensory sensors placed on both sides of the hoverboard that will detect the presence of a user, and will control the speed and direction of the machine according to the dynamic balance that you will apply on the device.
After learning to master this dynamic balance, you will be able to move your Segway forward by leaning slightly forward, stopping the device at a red light without going down while staying straight, feet in horizontal support. Although it is advisable to train in a free and safe space, do not panic: mastering the hoverboard is developing very quickly. Some skillful people can control the device the first time they use it.
To initiate a turn and turn with your hoverboard, you simply have to maintain the pressure of the foot located on the side where you need to go, while reducing the pressure exerted by the other foot. Thus, the sensors will receive this pressure difference, and adjust the speed of the motors accordingly. The lower pressure motor will slow down, and the Mini Segway will be steered by the faster wheel.
4. How to ride a hoverboard?
Hoverboarding is very simple.
The first thing to do is to turn it on by clicking on the “Power” button (its location depends on the brands and models but in general it is located below or on the front of the hoverboard). For the models which have LEDs, you will see that the hoverboard is switched on because they light up. Some models also emit sound.
Next, to get on your hoverboard, you need to place your feet on the platform. The hoverboard will detect your weight and start up. To steer you, it works like a surfboard or skateboard: you have to lean in the desired direction. To turn right or left, transfer weight to the right or left leg. The LEDs can be used as a flashing light to indicate to pedestrians and other vehicles that you are turning.
To accelerate, lean forward, and to brake or stop the device, lean slightly back. Finally, to get off the aircraft, wait until it has completely stabilized.
