Why do the wheels lean. We couldn’t fix it so we go out of the borders of the robot please help us!!!
Post a picture please.
Sometimes, it’s because the axles don’t have enough support. Most of the robot builds use plastic axles with heads . The axles go through one structure piece, a spacer, then the wheel and a shaft collar. As the shaft collar gets looser, the axle and wheel have more room to bend.
Some things my team does to make it steadier:
- Use metal axles
- Have structure between the wheel and the motor AND outside the wheel
- Put a 2x2 lock plate inside the wheel so it wobbles less
- be sure to add a shaft collar on the axle that holds it in the motor
Hope that helps.
