    It's going well on the flat, the only problem I'm having is hills. Going down is a bit scary at the moment and I'm struggling if I have to stop when going up a hill as, depending on how steep it is, it can be a bit tricky getting going again.

    Is it just practice or a bit of lack of power? You don't look as if you are heavy :D

    Do you have a speed control on it, going down hill just put it on the lowest speed and you should be OK. going up hill if you stop, put on a higher speed and it should be OK, that's how my scooter works.

    It's just practise, I forgot that when you start on a hill, or if the hill gets a bit steep to lean forward to give the front wheel more grip and, as Happy Paws2 says below, to increase speed.

    Yes, I have speed control, thank you, I forgot that you need to increase speed on hill starts.
    On one steep downhill bit I just rolled down, using the break when needed, just something else to learn :)
