After a downgrade or a firmware upgrade
When I did the update to v1.2.8 version after driving under the incessant beeps, I restored to factory settings and I found that it was a "little better".
After, I came back to the v1.1.7 version and then I did the same. Why?
In fact the Mini saves the user driving attitudes, as you can see from the screenshot of the product description
When you fall, or lose control of the Mini, the Mini continues on its way, I advise you to learn to jump back and try to catch it
The Mini's algorithm collects your driving habits, it is necessary to reset to update its analysis.
A friend's daughter recently just had an accident with a Mini.
How to avoid this?
Here's what I recommend :
1 / First know the route in advance allows you to prepare for obstacles such as deformation of the roadway, sidewalks, traffic problems
2 / The child's weight is important, in fact, the Mini is based on the weight of the owner adjusts the driving function, you need to do is go into the settings and reset at each change of users, the factory settings to "erase" the memory of the mini data about your weight and driving attitudes.
3 / With Ninebot application, limit the speed between 6 and 10 km / h for the first 20 minutes of ride, that the Mini stores attitude and weight of the child.
4 / helmet, elbow pads, knee: Remember protections 😏
5 / Finally you always hold back the child to help anticipate obstacles by your advice
6/ Don't forget before use for yourself your Mini to restore again factory settings
The Xiaomi Mini is highly resistant to shock, but scratches on the fender and wheel covers are common, protect it with adhesive door protectors
Pavement, packed dirt, slopes ＜15°, obstacles ＜ 0.4 in (1 cm),gaps ＜ 1.2 in (3 cm)
You have to adapt to the MINI, and the Mini will adapt to you
You must restart the tutorial
You reset the factory settings, because the sensors recorded your previous driving and also remember your mistakes, ride your first mile quietly, cool, gentle, do not beep the Mini.
Then, after unlocking the speed, start driving slowly, avoid obstacles, bumps, drive a little faster by monitoring your speed on the application, without causing tiltback (beep alarm and braking if exceeded with tilting back of the platform so you do not continue to force on the supports)
You must start driving your first 50 kilometers with caution
You have to understand that speed does not seem fast when around you, bikes, cars go faster
This gives you stress and the urge to go faster
You must understand that driving is intuitive, with your feet and your center of gravity
You have to bend your knees, find at every moment the position of your body, adapt it to driving
You must anticipate obstacles
You must observe sidewalks, which you can climb without causing alarm beeps
To understand the force exerted by your feet, put two fingers on the pads
Put pressure everywhere and see how the MINI speeds up, back and forth, reacts.
You must feel with your fingers the strength that your feet must transmit to the pads.
Do not insist when it is beeping, do not force with your feet, you can be ejected forward, because it will lock and bend
When you are familiar with your speed, your behavior and the logic of the MINI, you will feel a lot of pleasure in driving it
Between your orders that you transmit to the MINI by the pressure of your feet and the position of your body, the MINI has a calculation time shifted almost a second.
Riding faster, but...
Do you want ride faster? (me too, but...). Well
1/ don't look the cars (except for security)
2/don't look bicycle (except for security)
3/ look only walkers,
and you will feel go super fast.....
Like me, i ride the night, in countryside of Bordeaux, and with only 16km/h i feel really be fast
no much cars
but no walkers
Only rabbit in the camp join you to your alone ride in the night and bats are flying over you .... many time you can see fox accross the road at the horizon....
Really, riding by night is very quiet and you feel really 16/18km/h are good
Would you crash with 30kmh like speed , like EUC?
Me i rather prefer be crashed at 17/18km/h because i can jump safely from my mini and landing my body like a super hero AVENGER :)
Our mini with runaway issue imagine it after a crash at 30km/h 😭😭😭😭😭😭 loose money, research spare parts, imports parts, wait delivery....
