How to Recalibrate / Reset your Hoverboard or Swegway

How to Recalibrate / Reset your Hoverboard or Swegway HoverGlide

So we get asked this question, so so many times we’ve lost count.

‘How do I recalibrate my hoverboard?’

And when we don’t get asked that particular question, we get asked to repair swegways with the following symptoms:

-Flashing red lights

-One side is vertical and the other one is flat

-Shaking hoverboards


The best approach to any hoverboard problem should be to recalibrate it first. This procedure is sometimes referred to as resetting.


For the geeky ones out there, it simply resets the altitude gyroscopic sensors by setting a new 0 i.e. defining a new 90 degree between the HoverGlide and gravity.


Anyway, if you have followed our recalibrating procedure explained here and are still confused go ahead and check out the video below.

Any questions? We would love to answer them.
