Nope, but If one showed up on my desk I would gladly do so. ;)

I've programmed a mecanum drive system quite a few times over the years,
The algorithm is dead simple!

I've also built a three wheel'd bot very similar to that as well but I
never got around to putting a controller in it.

In either case, my experiences have shown it to be very important that you
incorporate a gyroscope into your controller to keep the robot moving in a
straight line, unless you are just going to drive it around with a joystick.

All the best!
