When I changed from hub 3 to hub 4 (then hub 5) I noticed that the design had changed: rather than the enclosed hub, 4 and 5 have a row of vents running along the top.
So what I'm wondering is - does the new vent placement create the faults; including the intermittent faults; due to dust getting into the inner workings?
Dust has no obstacle to falling straight down into the hub; no matter how much cleaning goes on; and it's not safe to cover the vents to try to protect it.
Would we be better with a hub which is sealed along the top?
Also the thinnner shape coupled with the tiny legs may cause it to fall over more easily; could we have a small squarish design with a rounded dome sealed top? (shaped a bit like an owl?)
Ok I like owls, grin, but you catch my drift yes 🙂
