Post Motor sensitiviting?
I currently have my robot set up with just a simple "motor[motorD] = joystick.joy1_y1;" and "motor[motorE] = joystick.joy1_y2;" command, but they're overly sensitive. When I'm not touching the control the Y-axis on the controller is at -1 or 1 sometimes and when it is my robot goes crazy. Is there a way to make it so that the motors don't start moving until the Y-axis on my controller is at 5 or -5? I apologize if this sounds like a real novice question, but this is my team's first year competing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. :wink:

What you want is called a deadzone. If you search on this forum for deadzone you'll find what you're looking for.
