Does the Open4Motors block square joystick inputs?

I notice that within the VI, there is a constant labeled “Square Inputs” that is set to true. Does this automatically square our joystick inputs when we drive the motors?

Yes it does.
You can see it by drilling down through the Arcade or Tank Drive vis.


I guess this means we’ve been squaring our squares in previous years…


The important question is did your drivers like it?

They made it work, for sure, but now that I know that I’ll be sure to disable that feature from now on so we can custom tune our own curves.

Plus, I want to see what true linear drive is like. I don’t expect to enjoy it, but if I’ve never driven with it, I’m interested.
