Mistakes my "pupils" made
- Tims mistake was he didn't use the button to lower the
side wheels long enough. This mistake can be seen at the
end of the second video of Tim.
The sidewheels were not fully locked in their support. He was
lucky, they must have been just far enough to hold the Ecomobile
upright. Was it just a fraction less down, the side wheels would
not have been able to hold that weight upright and the Ecomobile
would have fallen.
The alarm announced he was in problems. My mistake was to not give
him that alarm info.
- Johans mistake was to try to lower the wheels too
early. He was still not within the range of the speeds
where the button can be activated. Once he knew that he found his
confidence again and continued his slaloms. :)
I am pretty sure i told him this detail. I guess it is a bit too
much to remember all on your first ride. I must remember to tell
the pupils this info while they ride as passenger. There i have
more time to spread the info over a longer time. That talk just
before they close the door is too much info on short time. I have
been teacher. i should have foreseen this error.
