Hello Josh, have you tried recalibrating your hoverboard? You might try doing that :)
You can find out how to do it here: http://www.inexpensiveboards.com/repairing-your-self-balancing-scooter-is-simple-and-easy/
The very first video. Hope that helps!
My smart balance wheel works perfectly for the first 2 or 3 minutes I ride it, but after that the left pedal senses my foot but won't move if I tilt it. The right side stays on though. If I turn of my smart balance wheel and turn it back on it will work again for another 2 or 3 minutes but it will happen again. Thanks
