I had been thinking the crawl mode would help with that. In other words, I would not try to operate my zx1 near the edge of the Grand Canyon.

    You can reprogram the controller for better turning control, making it less jerky, Triumph. Pat redid mine but it was too slow in the turns so he sent the programmer too me and I reprogrammed it back.


      Thanks, Patrick. I did have a DME use a programmer to make the slower movement less jerky and it seemed to work for a while, but now back to jerky at very slow maneuvering. May get it done again.


        Interesting to know. Let us know if you experience any negative situations from doing that.

          Further to the discussion about "crawl mode". I notice in the manual it is mentioned as safe mode. Even though it is not stated that I can see, the commonsense purpose of enabling crawl mode when you have the wheelchair wheels raised above the ground would be balance. No doubt Spinergy's intended purpose I believe.

          Now having already gone over sideways in a bus I can understand its purpose but as I still have my tyres touching slightly it is of little use. You can however imagine the rocking and rolling effect created going around corners if the wheelchair wheels are raised to their highest point.
