Issue Details

I would like to expand two motor arcade drive to four motor arcade drive in LabVIEW for FIRST Robotics Competition(FRC). How should I go about this?


To switch from two to four motors, replace the two motor open VI with four motor open VI by following these steps:
  1. Open the Begin VI inside the Robot Main code.
  2. Now replace the open two motor VI with the four motor version.                                                                                                                                                                               
  3. Finally, wire the corresponding motor PWM signals into the open four motor drive VI.
