Center Leg Axle Mod
I ran R5 into a slightly misaligned elevator gap.  It broke his stock 3D-Printed Axle.  I was able to move it to the rear and epoxy it in place and it lasted the next day.  However, by the end of the day (12 hours of use) both axles had given out. Editorial note the red on the wheels is a 3D Pen applied ABS to fill gaps and reinforce the wheel frames).

So, designed printed sleeves for 4-inch (10-32, I think  Basically an M4 bolt) screws with nylock nuts and washers. I used the standard axle mounting hardware, just printed extra copies (I will put these in my R2 so I have an extra set.  That's why there are four axels and mounting brackets).
