Hi AllI have a sabertooth 2x32 which will run using the standard movement panel and coded scrips. This means I have no control of the speed unless I change the code or the ramps in sabertooth.When I use the sabertooth movement panel only one motor drives forward and sometimes not in reverse. I read that this movement panel needs some changes, but how to config the panel is past me.Can anyone help?

Hi, I'd like to work on the ez robot completely through C++plugins for the builder. Is there a reference of classes or other C++ plugin examples so I can learn how to access the robot features. I have absolutely no idea how to use the ez builder beyond the importing plugins part. Thank you for reading.

question
New here and am asking some questions.My project is an independent drive via 24 volt Jazzy motors controlled with a Sabertooth 2x32. My wish is to have autonomous operation and have RC over ride. I have an operational RC and operational Arduino autonomous but have not been able to assemble both. Dimension Engineering (Sabertooth) have guided me some. Apparently the Sabertooth default mode 1 will do what I want by S1 to TX on Arduino. S2 to...
question
So I am about to buy another lipo battery for the EZ VB4, the one I was using for my EZ BV4 was a 7.4V, 1300mAh and I was wondering if it is safe to use a 11.1V, 1300mAh. I have read a few threads in this community but I just felt safer in asking if someone has used the 11.1V and has not had any issues burning anything.

Hello everyone,We have 4 EZ-Robot Humanoid JD. The 4 ez-robots are 2 years old. We tried connecting via phone and it worked but the capabilities of the phone software was limited. the PCs we used and had the software recently downloaded wouldn't recognize the robot at all. But one of the teammates who had the software downloaded from the first of this year or maybe even November of last year, the software, would work just fine and connect and...

question
We've all seen it.  The Super Armatron has it, the Omnibot 2000 has it, and if you take away the head of Gypsy from MST3K, it's all you have left!  I am of course talking about those fun bits of rubber tubing that add a clean, industrial flourish to any robot.  I'm in the process of taking an old Robie Sr. and giving it the same treatment that DJ Sures gave to his Omnibot 2000, which means that the arms and head will have to be extended away from...
