Post Gyro drift
I'm using Lego Mindstorms Gyro Sensor with EV3 and i have very often problem with drift(this i can see in the PortView mode). I want to write a program, that will check gyro sensor and, if it has drift, resets gyro sensor and
remove drift OR find a function for drift like drift_angle(seconds), that will compute and check angle including drift(for rotations of the robot, etc). But i can't reset gyro sensor - it does not work. Firstly I used 4(or more) commands resetGyro(...) or sensorReset(...) as first commands in main task(may be i should add command sleep(1000) before
first command to wait some sys inits?). Secondly I used something like this:
SensorType[S4] = sensorNone;
SensorType[S4] = sensorEV3_Gyro;
sleep(500);(like pragma
config but in main). I read that changing gyro mode Angle->Rate->Angle(or more steps) can solve the problem with removing drift, but i know only sensorNone and sensorEV3_Gyro variables. How can i change gyro mode in way Angle->Rate? Now the best solution i have found is to disconnect and connect again the gyro sensor, but how to remove drift in my program?? And where can i find info about function, that "computes" drift? May be there is
one in ROBOTC or where can i read about it? Who knows another solutions of this problem? Thanks

I used the following program for about 10 minutes and noticed no drift. Can you show me what it is you're doing?

#pragma config(Sensor, S1,     GYRO,           sensorEV3_Gyro, modeEV3Gyro_RateAndAngle)
//*!!Code automatically generated by 'ROBOTC' configuration wizard               !!*//

task main()
  while (true)
    displayCenteredBigTextLine(4, "DEGR: %3.2f", getGyroDegrees(GYRO));
    displayCenteredBigTextLine(6, "RATE: %3.2f", getGyroRate(GYRO));
    displayCenteredBigTextLine(8, "TIME: %d", nPgmTime);
