The "goes back to yellow" could be the battery voltage rising again when there's no load.

Can the battery also be charged from pedaling?

@vertigo I think you’re right. My guess is that when the voltage drops below a safe level, something locks-out the motor drive, but the gauge still displays the battery level as a function of the battery voltage which recovers some once the motor is cut.

Looking forward to taking it apart over the winter and figuring out exactly how all this stuff ticks.

No regen with the stock controller but that’s something I want to fix :)
