How pray tell me did you do that???--- I know you GA boys have a reputation of being easily capable of destroying ball bearings with a rubber hammer. Geeze Louise how did you do that????

As you know the M7 is a tank however here's the spill.   Either it was one of my Dale Earnhardt going down episodes where the cart hit the side of a cart path and took a hard crash or possibly the time Betty Lou topped a hill and took on a full size golf cart.   😳  One of my buddies said she was humping on his golf cart like stud bull on the hunt. The good news is I sent a pic of the damaged part to Motocaddy and they responded immediately!  I sent my address and they will have the part I need delivered soon. Talk about world class customer service!  💣

I know you just could not stand it that I was the first to turn one over. You had to one up me and do actual damage. Big E would have been proud of you.

@BIG STU gifted me his Motocaddy M7 as he felt walking his course was not in his future. So I'm going to give my impressions and testing here. I can't say it enough. Thank you Stu.

So first off the unit does fold very compact and I was able to get it back to Tennesse with no problem even though the car was loaded from vacation. Three suitcases, a set of golf clubs, two beach chairs, backpack, beach bag, and a cooler. All in the trunk of my Chevy Impala.

Being excited to take the M7 out, I headed to the course this afternoon. Probably not one of my better decisions. It was 87, sunny, and humid. I'm usually a morning golfer but I had to many chores to get caught up on after being away a week. But somehow always enough time to get in a few holes. 🤣

Getting used to the controls was a piece of cake. I took it for a text drive around my yard yesterday to get familiar with it. I was zipping around the course easily. I got to the second hole and this is one of the larger hills. Shorter but steeper, if it made it up this one any doubts I had would be dismissed. 

Let me tell you. This thing will climb like a mountain goat. It made it up with no problem. Me on the other hand, well I was huffing and puffing when I got to the top. I'm in decent shape but this is a tough walking course. Not one flat hole, every hole has elevation changes.  I made it through 7 holes before calling it quits. Mainly due to the heat. My legs were fine but I felt the heat starting to get to me. I did take a video. As soon as I figure out how to get it out of my phone I'll add it.

What I learned today.

I have to figure out an easy place to store the remote when I go to the green. The built in holder on the trolly is a little cumbersome. Putting the remote in my pocket is not a good idea. I'll get back to that in a minute.

Stopping the trolly on the cart path that is inclined you can see that the trolly wants to roll backward. It won't roll back but it did creep a little. So on inclines I just kept the trolly on the grass and angled it a bit.

I can comfortably walk and keep up on level 4. 

It is best to have the trolly a  few yards or more out in front of you.  When you turn left or right it sort of stops forward motion on harder turns and you can walk into it if your too close. 

Never run the Motocaddy without the wheelie bar in place. I noticed that on climbing the hills, without it, it certainly would have flipped. The wheelie bar got a work out.

Most importantly disconnect the power plug from the battery to the motors when you get back to your car before doing anything else. I put the remote in my pocket and bent over to untie my shoes. Well the bending over motion must have activated the remotes forward motion and the cart ran into me. So now trying to get up, get the remote out of my pocket, and hold the trolly back must have been a site. I realized how much torque that thing has. Glad nobody was in the parking lot to see that fiasco. 🤪 So if this happened at the green and depending on if you were paying attention to the cart or not it could take off as you bend down to read the green.

The later version in UK came with a small cube that fits into the top of the accessory station that the remote fits onto. Pretty handy but no use if you have something else in there already. 
 

Personally I put the remote on the outside of my pocket when going to the green. That way, you can walk off and set the trolley off to meet you at the same time.

I told you that thing has power--- The remote incident you described is what I think happened to me that day when it was turned over by the entrance to the snack bar wheels spinning. But then again that day I think some of the men's groups may have messed with it because they were sitting laughing. from then on I did reach down and disconnect the battery if I went inside for a while. And if they messed with it I may have brought that on myself by messing with them. When I first got it of course there was some curiosity and when someone starting looking at it I would be in the clubhouse or up by the outside bar area and make it move. Turned it on a dime and chased one old codger with it. Even though I did not wring it out balls to the wall like I really wanted to I probably had more ought right fun and giggles with it than anyone else.

I thought I told Tom maybe I did maybe I did not--- I somehow broke the clip off the remote and I used the phone clip when I did not have it in hand.

I noticed the clip was broken off but the piece was in the unit. Luckily I work in a manufacturing facility. I'm going to make a stainless steel replacement clip in the next day or two.

LOL I actually thought of that as a "Stu Assist" but then thought knowing my luck it would go Loco and drag me to my death like a rider stuck in horse stirrup. I had also thought of like a old lawnmower axle mounted to a seat like a single horse buggy racer but figured it would burn it up dragging me around or again go Loco and kill me.

I couldn't stop myself. I got home from work and headed right into my workshop. When you take the remainder of the clip off the remote there is the one attachment screw but there are two square nubs that protrude into two square pockets to prevent the clip from rotating. I used modeling clay to get the locations and transfered the pattern to stainless steel. A 6-32 machine screw fit into the square detents perfectly. A little drilling and tapping, some bending and polishing and done.

Another round in today.

Summary:

Hills. No problem what so ever climbing our mountainous course. The Motocaddy M7 has more torque than you could imagine. I survived the walk as well (88 degrees, sunny, and humid).

Ease of set up and operation. Very easy.

Tipping. I put this through some rough uneven terrain. And ran it through on speed level 5 and it did not tip over. I found the steepest side of one of our hills and it did not tip over backwards. The wheelie bar with the wheel did its job well.

Things I have to get used to. The clip connection to the back of the remotes orientation is reverse of what I instinctively think it should be. So when mounted on your belt its upside down.

I instinctively walk to the cart and bag after a shot instead of having it come to me or meet me somewhere. That's just a change that will take a while to become ingrained. 

Now for the Motocaddy bag. Let me start by saying that I am a 14 way divider bag fan. However the compartment layout of the 14 slots is not user friendly. They tried to reduce the footprint by staggering the club slots. This makes it tougher to get clubs in and out. Especially on an angle. It also has me looking more for the club I want.  I like the rows type of design more. I have a Bag Boy Chiller. I'll still work with it for awhile and see if I get used to it. This is a waterproof bag so there is one zipper pull on the left side of each pocket. By design to keep water out. Normally other bags will have one on each side and I kept them at the top. Easy enough to get used to but worth mentioning.

... Just to add some experience. I prefer the MGI ZIP for one reason. Gyroscope. With my M7 I had to constantly re-direct the cart as it tends to wander back and forth although usually in one direction like curving to the right or left. There are adjustments you can make but they always seems to over correct and I never got it to track straight. This is really my only complaint as my M7 was durable and reliable for everything other than moving in a straight line. The ZIP never wanders or more appropriately if it hits a slope and moves a little one way or the other, it self corrects after a few yards and gets back on course. It is impossible to over state how much this matters and I would easily call it a night and day difference because set the speed and keep it about 6 feet in front of you and you never have to think about it til you get to your ball and hit stop. One other nice feature of the ZIP's remote is there are 2 buttons that turn the unit on and off. When you stop you press a red bottom and the other buttons no longer work. When ready to start again you press a green Botton and the rest of the buttons are functional again. This stops you from a "pocket" command like Tom mentioned. 

... As far as the companies, I find MGI arrogant and not very helpful if you have any problem related to weather. Get caught in a rain storm and the electronics cease to work? Too bad and you are on your own for repairs. I had a problem with the battery on my M7 after getting caught in a sudden downpour and Mottocaddy replaced it after taking it to the repair center in Aurora IL. My ZIP got wet after crashing in a lake when some high school kids demoing it lost control. I have probably helped MGI sell 20-40 units with reviews and word of mouth. I contacted them and asked for a replacement at PUD pricing since I had done so much for the company. Should have been a no brainer but they sent me a thanks for being "a loyal customer and proud owner" but nothing they could do for me. After contacting several others in the company the response was "here is a link to some refurbished ZIPs and you can pay full price. Since I already paid full price and owned the MGI Quad and the ZIP that was crashed by others, I felt selling me one for their cost was an ideal solution. Their final response was basically "Not what you want to hear but we will do nothing for you and don't care how many units you have helped us sell through reviews and word of mouth". And it was as much how they responded than what they said as they were just very condescending. 

... The above established, I bought a new ZIP when Costco had them on sale for $300 off because as much as I dislike MGI the company, if you keep your ZIP out of the rain or around any water it is the best remote cart on the market. I have had 6 different remote carts and most went out of business. If I were getting a non remote model, I would definitely go with Mottocaddy as I owned the S1 non remote and never had any issues with it.

Like you said I found the M-7 to wander some what little bit I had it on the course. I kinda chalked it up to unever terrain and also kinda like adjusting the Trim Tabs on an airplane. I had played with it enough for a while I got good with the remote.
