Controlling VictorSPX and SparkMax with CAN

Hi! I have a question on controlling VictorSPX and SparkMax simultaneously (using arcade drive)

Question: Is it possible to use 2 VictorSPX and 2 SparkMax to control a 4 CIM motors drivetrain?
I’m planning on controlling 2 left motors with VictorSPX and 2 right motors with SparkMax.

Thank you,
Stephen.

There shouldn’t be any problem doing it, but you won’t be able to use follower mode across manufacturers; you’ll have to set both motors manually.

Thank you!
I tried using DifferentialDrive for the 2 motor groups, but it didn’t work.
Can you show me how I can do it manually, please?

You’re going to want to be more specific if you want useful responses.

Sure! This is the problem:
The constructor DifferentialDrive(VictorSPX, CANSparkMax) is undefinedJava(134217858)

How can I fix that?
Thank you so much.

Your problem isn’t related to mixing VictorSPX and CANSparkMax, but not using the VictorSPX correctly with the WPI drive classes.
