Light and sturdy, only one flaw...

- 21st August 2014

These wheels work great on hard surfaces and when mounted PERFECTLY level. If you are off-axis at all, then the e-clips on the sides holding the rollers on contact the ground and jump off, causing the roller and axle to come out and jam your whole mechanism. We demo a small mecanum vehicle for potential robotics students at WPI, and we lose them at a rate of around 2/hour. It happens all the time on carpet too (regardless of mounting tolerance), because the fine hairs grab the clips and pull them off. [FT: We hear you and will design a screw-end shaft set!]
