Experience with UNI-SUN 6.5 inch Hoverboard
I can pretty much summarise my experience with this board by saying it’s everything a low- Cost self-balancing scooter should be simple, effective, reliable, and good-looking. Out of the box, it might not have the most eye-catching design or ultra-premium finish. Nevertheless, it’s a handsome piece of kit and really bursts into life when those LED lights are activated.
What really surprised me about the board was the feeling of power, performance, and stability it had while in use. Budget boards have a tendency to feel a little wobbly or flimsy or at least stutter from time to time when there’s an incline. We (myself and my daughter) tested this thing all over the place, and it performed like a dream. I’d say the manufacturer’s estimated top speed of 9.3mph is a little optimistic it’s probably more in the region of 7mph.
