I have an EV3 Home edition. I have made a tribot. Two main motors for the wheels and a caster in the back. To complete a full turn in place I need to set the rotations to 2.32 or 835 degrees. enter image description here

Does this seem normal to you? I am using The Art of Lego Mindstorms EV3 Programming. The author gets his tribot to turn one full turn in place by setting the degrees to 425. I am just curious why my setting are almost double. We are both using home editions.

  • Actually I have answered my own question. 425 is for a 180 degree turn. Doh! – john5023 Jan 4 at 2:36
  • Glad you figured it out yourself! But just for future reference, it's actually very easy to calculate how many wheel degrees you need for any robot rotation. See this post here. – MindS1 Jan 4 at 3:27
