I am working with the BrickPi3 and have performed software updates for both the raspberry pi and the BrickPI3 through DI Software Update tool. I received confirmation at the end that the Update was complete.
I have been successful getting the motors to turn using the broadcast block in Scratch (see note below) but when I use any of the possible options to call the position command in the broadcast block (MOTOR A position 360, M A P360, MOTOR A P5, ,…), the NXT motor goes full speed for about 5 secs and then, for a lack of a better description, shakes. I can not shut it off without running another script that does not contain the position command. It doesn’t matter what I enter as the rotation variable. Is there anything that I can try to get this working?
Note: I also noticed that if I run two motor commands with a stop in between in the same script, the motor turns in the opposite direction for the second command. Is this normal?
Thanks for your help!
