Bixpy Production Update and News! We would like to take this time to thank you for your incredible support and pre-orders. We’re just as excited as everyone else to get motors into your hands and into your adventures!
Here is the latest news from the Bixpy HQ. We’re getting close!
-Bixpy Production Update and News-
As always, many things have happened at Bixpy since the last update so we would like to give everyone a quick update on our production progress and other key events.
Last week we received our first small batch of production motors! This is very exciting news, as these are finished products, bringing us much closer to the reality of delivering everyone’s orders.
This small batch was for quality confirmation and functionality testing and so far everything has been great!
From here, our production team is building another small batch of 100 motors from which we will fulfill some first orders and keep a few motors for further testing and engineering validation. We will then immediately enter full capacity production and fulfill all other pre-orders and hold some inventory for future orders.
Although we had expected things to move along a little more quickly in this final stage, the new shaft material has required more attention in machining and production than expected. However, it is not causing any significant delays and we’re optimistic that the first Bixpy Jets will be ready by the end of this month.
At the same time, we have finished the production of all Bixpy accessories. These include all the attachment kits, cables, wiring, fins adapters and other items you need for installing your Bixpy Jets to kayaks and paddle boards. These parts are all ready and sitting in our San Diego warehouse ready to ship when we have the motors.
As always, we would like to thank everyone who has supported our mission from the beginning and trusted us with pre-orders and pledges. We’re working tirelessly to make sure you’re thrilled with the product you will soon receive. All the best, The Bixpy Team

The M1 just got better. Again. We’re proud to announce the release of Inboard M1 Firmware 2.2, Inboard's biggest upgrade to the M1 yet. Over the past several months, They have released 3 performance-enhancing firmware updates for the M1, and this one by far has the most to offer. They have made adjustments to braking behavior, improved thermal management, and enabled a collection of new features accessible from the Vision App.
We’re working on Vision for Android, so if you do not have an iPhone, we strongly recommend borrowing one from a friend, downloading Inboard Vision and updating. The process only takes minutes and will add a host of new features and improvements to the M1.
Firmware 2.2 Features
For riders in warmer climates, we’ve improved the overall thermal management within the Manta Drive motors. The amount of time you have full acceleration before reaching thermal limits is now increased. When initial thermal limits are reached, acceleration is smoothed to gradually reduce torque, rather than an instant cutoff. This means you can ride longer and harder before reaching thermal limits.
This improvement compliments a feature from the previous update, where we refined torque falloff for the Manta Drive. This makes the transition from accelerating or braking to gliding feel much smoother and more predictable.
Braking has been adjusted to maintain performance during temperature limiting. This can happen during a long, continuous run over flat terrain or while riding on hot pavement. To improve safety, the M1 now allows braking at far higher temperatures than the limits for acceleration. This means that, on the rare occasion when the motors get too hot, the ability to accelerate will be limited long before the ability to brake.
We’ve added an M1 odometer feature that will start recording total ride distance from the moment M1 Firmware 2.2 is installed. Distance stats can be viewed in the Vision App. Currently the odometer feature is accurate to the nearest mile, rounded down.
With M1 Firmware 2.2, you can now switch between beginner, intermediate (eco), and advanced riding modes directly from the app. Custom mode, where the rider will be able to set custom values for acceleration and top speed, is still in development and will be available soon.
New Pairing Procedure
After installing this update, riders can use an alternative pairing procedure to pair the M1 to the RFLX Remote or Vision App. To pair, lay the board on a flat surface with the wheels up and firmly knock three times in a row anywhere on the deck near the rear truck. This will put the board into pairing mode and allow it to pair with the RFLX Remote or Vision App. If desired, you can continue to use the old ‘tap and hold’ pairing procedure
The temperature warning LED flash pattern can now be toggled on and off
The non-critical error LED flash pattern now displays for a shorter amount of time
Included Improvements from Previous Updates
Increased torque for better acceleration and hill climbing. The M1 will now utilize a steeper acceleration curve, which means riders will experience improved off-the-line acceleration and better uphill performance, especially at lower speeds.
Idle PowerShift Battery life extended. This fix addresses a bug where the M1 would prematurely drain a connected PowerShift Battery, even when the M1 was off. This fix significantly reduces idle M1 battery drain, but does not completely eliminate it. We still recommend completely removing the PowerShift Battery when the M1 is not in use, especially for long periods of time.
PowerShift Battery charge level reporting improved. This fix improves the accuracy of measuring the remaining charge in your PowerShift Battery and also fixes a bug that was generating false low battery warnings in certain riding situations.
More consistent top speed for all riding modes. This fix improves the regulation of maximum speed in all three riding modes while riding on a flat surface. Acceleration is now completely disabled once the M1 reaches the top speed for the set riding mode.
Torque falloff for the Manta Drive has been further refined to make the transition from accelerating or braking to gliding feel much smoother and more predictable.
The M1 will now run a critical hardware safety check every time the board is turned on. This will test the functionality of critical temperature sensors, motor drive circuitry, and Bluetooth components. If any critical components are found to be faulty, both M1 tail LEDs will alternate a quick flashing pattern for 1 minute and then put the M1 into sleep mode. The M1 will not be rideable in this state. If errors are found to be non-critical, front and rear LEDs will alternate a quick flashing pattern, and then M1 will operate as normal.
The intermittent issue where only one Manta Drive wheel spins when throttle is applied without anyone on the board is now fixed.
Another day, and more electrified fun. We managed to get our hands on the Camorama 360 degree 4k VR Camera and decided to write a little review on it. We’ve been in the market for 360 Cameras for a little bit and finally came across the right camera for the price and features. Other 360 Cameras usually had pretty poor quality or were cumbersome at best. When we saw that the Camorama camera was 4K (has the same image sensor as the Yi 4K camera, which crushes GoPro Hero 4; IMX377) and offered some really cool features like live streaming and control over Wifi with a remote or your phone, waterproof to 30M with the underwater case all for a decent price, we anxiously placed our order. We quickly received our Camorama unit and put it to the test. We ordered the 64GB model as it was a good price point right in the middle and offered a sizeable amount of storage. We also ordered the underwater case, tripod, selfie stick and camera soft carrying bag. The camera and accessories arrived quickly and packaged very well.
Unboxing, felt similar to opening up a flagship product like the latest iPhone, nothing feels cheap or too plastic. The camera itself is very small and for the most part light weight which makes carrying it around in the little soft case very easy. It even comes with a little clip to help things along. The Selfie stick is well constructed and feels very sturdy. I would usually attach the selfie stick to the tripod to get higher elevation shots. The tripod has a built in level for ensuring everything is nice and flat for the best shots. It’s okay if the camera is not perfectly level, you’re unlikely to see a difference unless it’s noticeably leaning.
Home screen, connect the Camorama Camera via Wifi. Follow the quick animation. Set a first time password. Afterwards connecting to the camera is fast and seamless.
View downloaded content when not connected to the Camorama unit, otherwise you will see all files streamed over Wifi when connected. This is nice as well as it won’t take up space on your phone unless you choose to download items.
View in the various modes. The buttons in order from top to bottom: Flip Lens view, if you took the image or movie inverted or right side up, you can change the view with this button. The next button Cycles the options with each press: Fisheye, Tiny Planet, Wide Screen and Asteroid. Next is the active tracking mode: Use your finger to move around or turn on the tracking mode that matches your phone’s movement with what you see. Lastly here you can enable the VR mode, last option on the bottom.
Operating the camera is a breeze, and it pairs easily with your Android or iPhone after downloading the latest Camorama APP. It was refreshing for a change to have a device work well with my Android as often times developers focus on the IOS platform and trickle down to the Android platforms eventually, it just worked all around on my phone or my Fiancé’s iPhone. The first time connecting the camera to the phone App, it’ll present a blank Wifi Password field which it’ll then ask you to change to some 8 Digit number, obviously avoid using the same digit throughout like all 1’s 2’s or 0’s while that may seem tempting, it’s really to prevent anyone else from trying to connect to your Camorama on the go. If you forget the password, you can reset it easily by holding down the reset button near the charging port. The modes included Single Shots, Burst, and Video which can all be set by the Phone App, I found it easy to set it to a mode I liked, and then just use the camera’s bigger center button to start and stop video, or snap a shot, however for shots away from the camera, it’s useful to do so with your phone app. Sharing is easy with the phone app, and you don’t even have to download the files to the phone, you can preview them streaming over Wifi which is nice if your phone lacks storage capacity. When viewing the playback, a 1 finger tap and release snaps a screenshot and saves it locally to the phone. 2 Finger tap takes a panoramic photo from a video file which can be shared on social media. There is a Windows and Mac based Camorama player softer which will allow you to view, and edit photos and videos as well as export these items to be uploaded to Facebook or Youtube for example, screenshots can also be taken from this. We did find that some features were missing, like joining video files together, and earlier version of the software would crash, but after speaking to support, they quickly addressed the issue and updated me the second there was an update available for download on the site. We’ve used the camera kayaking, at the beach, at a wedding, hopefully soon we’ll go diving with it. So far it’s worked without issue every time. We did notice it’ll get warm to the touch when uploading and playing back videos from the camera whilst connected to the computer but that seems normal. We were able to record for a hair over 1.5 hours straight. If you’re snapping photos and videos here and there, it will last longer, and lasts a while on standby.
Pros: Competitive with other 360 Camera manufactures, and you get much more features for the price. Everything feels solid, and well designed. Very easy to operate, set it and forget it. Very small compact size. Works on Android or iPhones. Sharing to social media is easy from the Phone App. Magnetic lens cover and magnetic base allows attaching the Camorama camera to metallic surfaces.
Cons: The Camorama Windows Player app while getting better with each version still has some features that would be desired. Cannot comment on the MAC version of the software. Another con is that the video clips are broken into 2 minutes, I imagine that this is due to the fact that all 2 min clips are quite large in size as 360 video captures A LOT of data, and there are possibly limitations in saving these large blocks to the storage medium (This is just a guess), but I was assured that joining clips together would not be an issue in a release coming out soon for the Camorama Player Computer app. While not really so much of a con, but mentioning that the Storage capacity is built into the Camera much like the way iPhones are set up with internal memory which doesn’t let you add more. I’d recommending getting the largest size you can afford. It will not fill up in one session, we used the Camera 3 full times now and aren’t even halfway through the 64GBs.
*Please Note: The VR viewing module on this website “pinches” the top and the bottom. The images look and are seamless in the Camorama app and viewer and when uploaded to Facebook or Youtube.
Set up for hands free action. Use the Camorama 360 4K Mini Tripod to capture your most exciting moments. Place it in a city square, on a sandy beach shore, or near a waterfall. You’ll be sure to love using this well designed, sturdy mini tripod. It can be used with the Selfie stick to elevate your captures as well. The legs fold and double as a handy grip for hand held shooting.
Capture your most memorable moments by yourself or with your friends with the Camorama 360 4k Selfie Stick. Featuring a 6 section adjustable telescoping design that fully extends to 710mm. An articulating locking ball head with quick release makes for easy adjustment when filming with the camera right side up or inverted. 1/4 inch universal mounting point on the base handle as well as the top.
Sometimes life is wet! Take your Camorama 360° camera on your water adventures too with this underwater case.

With so many electric skateboards on the market, it’s hard to find one that doesn’t look exactly like the other. Enter the Inboard M1 Electric Skateboard; a stealthy longboard with in-wheel hub motors, integrated front and rear LEDs, all hidden electronics, a quickly swappable battery, ergonomically designed RFLX™ remote and a plethora of other features. When looking up close you’d swear there was stealth fighter technology in the finish of the board’s materials. Does it sound like we’re really fans of the board yet? Good, it’s because we are! Born in Santa Cruz, California, Inboard Skate initially found success on Kickstarter and later while on SharkTank. After trying out a number of electric boards the Inboard M1 offered something different, a more refined experience, “Technology that flows” as they put it. This is Boosted Boards competition and without a doubt another top tier board manufacturer. Does it justify the price tag slightly north of 1k? Premium quality almost always commands a premium price – so yes we think so. The Inboard M1 is the kind of precision engineering and design you’d expect from a Porsche Carrera S, or more fittingly a Tesla Model S. While it may not be the fastest off the line, it just feels awesome getting to top speed without ever feeling unstable in your run. Just like the Tesla’s of today, performance can be unlocked via an easy to do firmware upgrade. In fact a recently released update improved the torque curve down low which added even more get up and go from a stand still. This was just one area we noted on a very short list along with the premium price that might not please potential buyers. Based on feedback from the latest update, many board owners applauded the newer torque curve especially those in city areas where stopping and starting is frequent.
Now admittedly, the Boosted Board V2 has some get up and go thanks to it’s belt driven system, it’s physics, but it’s the kind of get up and go that feels like your buddy slapped your horse on the rear end without warning, it’ll dump you if you’re not careful. Maybe that’s your style and that’s fine, but the feeling of getting to your top speed is consistent and unmatched. Letting go of the throttle and just coasting is such a sense of freedom as the hub motors have little felt resistance or drag, in fact you can very much kick the Inboard M1 around like a normal longboard when the battery runs low or you need to prolong that ride to the next stop. We can appreciate that the only thing we’re swapping is batteries, and not motor belts. Maintenance is next to none. The water resistance rating is a huge plus, fear not going through puddles, however Inboard cautions about riding in the rain. They laid out a simple rule of thumb, if your back wheels are kicking up water constantly, it’s time to stop riding.
Pairing the RFLX™ Remote is a breeze and the design is great for when you’re really carving serious concrete. You can relax your remote hand while riding through sharp turns and not worry about dropping the remote. If that’s not your style, simply take the tail off.
The range is stated to be between 7-10 Miles and that held true during our tests, riding conditions and mode will obviously affect range. When you’re low on battery simply swap the battery out for a fresh one in 15 seconds or less which is something other board makers haven’t really been able to pull off yet. Florida being flat, really helps too, but hills of 15% grades are no problem for the board. Riding at night is liberating and usually goes with less traffic and cooler nights, and while the headlights don’t really illuminate your path, they certainly make others around you aware of your presence making it a safer experience for all involved. LEDs can be turned on and off via remote for those needing absolute stealth on their bombing mission. The regenerative braking seemed to work well enough. When blasting around at full speed, like any other vehicle, care should be taken to allow time to stop. A common question we receive is in regards to the batteries, and concerns regarding battery safety. Inboard technologies sources their Lithium ion batteries from Samsung, and the batteries are well designed and sealed. To date they have not had any issues with any batteries. The same unfortunately could not be said about Boosted. Rare warranty claims and issues are all easily and efficiently handled by Inboard ensuring consistency in their service experience. Using the Inboard Vision™ Mobile app is a snap, and has some pretty cool features such as applying firmware updates, making support requests and can also act as a remote if your battery dies or you don’t want to carry yet another item on you. The Vision App is currently being developed for Android devices and should be released soon.
All in all, Inboard Technologies has set the bar pretty high for current and future electric skateboard manufacturers.
