We are setting up our new controller and was wondering if there was a way to run our two speed controllers so that the throttle and steering work like an rc car would on this controller?

V-tail mixers are just a plug in and go device. Once it's correctly installed, there's nothing else to do.

Ok really struggling with this controller...can not get it to failsafe for the life of us. We had to switch back to the old controller for prelims and have spent the past week or so trying to solve this to no avail. It has to be in the v-tail mixer but I am not sure at this point. Frustrated beyond belief.

Have tried it with both the SR3300T and the SR300
Yes we have the controller in the positions we want it in and when we power it up the bot starts moving

Yeah we thought it would be a good way to ease our team into using it this year with the idea of designing a bot with a weapon next year. However our team is really dejected about this at this point as we are struggling to figure it out.
