V5 Lag Issues

While testing out the new motors using the V5 controller and brain, we realized that there’s a slight delay between between pressing the button and the motor actually running (maybe about 1/6 a second), and it’s very noticeable.

Is anyone else having this, or is this just something that comes with the V5 equipment?

How are you controlling the motors? I would guess its actually the velocity control loop ramping up not lag. Try with direct voltage control and see if its better.

The motor was run by connecting it to the brain. I’ll try your suggestion though and see if it works out.
