393 motors

Can you tell which way a motor is going to turn by looking at it and the program?

The default direction for Vex 393 motors should be counter-clockwise unless the code tells them to do otherwise or they are plugged in backwards on a motor controller or ports 1 and 10.
If you’re looking in your code: motors programmed with a negative number will make it go clockwise.

127 makes a motor spin counter-clockwise at maximum speed.
-127 makes motor spin clockwise at maximum speed.

An easy way to test which direction a motor is going is to plug in an axle with a gear and give it a spin.
It’s a lot better than having to squint at the small black hole on the motor, haha.
