Has anyone seen the latest eway atlas video. They are calling it tank mode. Tuning the board on the spot. Nice to see a company innervating, We might all be rideing with this mode one day.
Yes. It’s the thing I don’t need that I still want very badly. Exway is no joke.
Baja has had this function for years… funnily enough its called tank mode as well.
Honestly impressed with the atlas. Won’t buy it, but impressed.
If you use a remote like the mini with a steering input it should be possible to drive a diy board like an RC car.
I thought this while having to carry heavy thane builds up my rocky driveway.
i wonder how much heat the board will generate with a person on the board spining around
Couldn’t this be done with two separate esc’s and some code?
Big pharma is mad at exway for curing billy’s ED.
Yeah, run the signal into an Arduino and parse that out into signals to separate ESCs in duty cycle mode or just pwm
Where’s that video?
Only if you have enough torque to break traction, that would depend on what terrain you are on, on mud should be pretty easy
Won’t this be very bad on your wheels?
Why would exway care? More wheels to sell.
I feel like this would only be useful for driving your board in RC car mode. If you stand on it this wont really work. The only way i could see it working is on a mountainboard with very wide trucks on dirt. But in this case you can also just jump on a spot.
Actually pretty cool. The rocket, sweet. Think they could have used a better actuator to make it work automatically. Spoiler alert.
yeah my thinking was something that could reset itself would be really dangerous whereas the spring it is very clear that there is a dangerous amount of energy contained that could go off anytime.
I saw one really cool comment about using a gyro effect to make it self kickflip. I actually really like that idea because any of us could make it and try it out. Basically spin up a flywheel and stop it suddenly when in the air and use a gyro to self correct and make sure it lands flat.
relevant video to that idea:
Forget the kickflip. A turbo jump actuator, self resetting. With bindings of course, like an ollie from hell. Fucking thing turned in to a 64 Impala real quick… south central here we come
like a extra set of 4 wheels that pop up from below to launch you into the air?
might need to move into a “self launching skateboard” thread in not too long
