Hi! Is anyone able to tell me how to set one motor to the speed of the controller joystick?
There have been quite a few requests for instructions on how to use motor groups and creating a drivetrain with more than 2 motors in VEXcode. I’m going to discuss these classes a little and provide a simple example.
What is a motor group ?
A motor group collects two or more motors together and allows control as if they were a single entity. Just about all motor class member functions (by that I mean spin, spinTo, setVelocity etc.) are available on the motor group class. We introduced motor…
Also look at the 2nd comment which shows how to set up the speed of motor with joystick.
When controlling multiple motor with one joystick you have to make a variable that’s outside the while loop and make the variable equal the joystick value
Then put the variable inside the motor speed.
Do I write it like:
ch1 = controller1.axis1();
It said it had problem called controller1 axis 1 doesn’t have a call operator
How to solve this?
You must append .value to that. So it would be
You also don’t necessarily need to use a variable, you can insert that directly where you would put the variable/value for motor speed (in motor.spin)
You can take a look at this example from

Hello there! Our team, 1961Z, is planning to post a few coding support videos alongside building tips and tricks for new teams planning to do VRC alongside any current teams wanting some assistance.
In terms of coding, our coder (Avi) will be posting tutorials and basic code models through VexCode. For the building tips and tricks, both our main builder (Nitin) and our 3D designer (Ayush) will be focused on the multiple types of building techniques, bracing concepts, and more.

This summer, I am developing a series of VEXcode V5 Text tutorials to help all VRC teams. I am a graduating senior. Since I have used VCS and VEXcode since their initial release, I’d like to pass on my knowledge.
I would like my tutorial series to be as useful for teams as possible. I have outlined a 29-video series. My goal is for each video to be about 3 minutes long. Ideally, new programmers (with minimal experience) could watch the entire series and acquire a solid grasp of…
