View Full Version : Attaching wheels to Hitec 1422 servo

01-21-2009, 06:03 PM

I picked up four Hitec 1422s (continuous rotating 422s) to use as the drive system for a small bot. I thought it would be a simple thing to find wheels which would mount directly but not so. Most of the wheels I see are made to mount to 6mm shafts. Is there a good source of wheels out there for direct attachment to servos? I like the Banebot wheels but don't like the idea a glueing a wheel to a servo, seems like a kludge.

Any ideas?

Have you looked at these (http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store/c/2713-Servo-Mounted-Wheels.aspx)? Otherwise, glueing/screwing a wheel onto a servo horn is about the only other option. Many have done that to model airplane wheels.

Those do work well. If you need wider and stickier though, ServoCity does make some hub adapters.
