Post 4 Wheel Omni-drive help
The Setup
We are looking at programming a drive system that consists of 4 driven omni wheels. One on each side of the robot. (see attached diagram) This allows forward, backward, left and right slide and rotation left and right.

The Problem
When we add the code for rotation the motors do not run smoothly, it seems to stutter as it turns.

The Program
#pragma config(Motor, port2, RightMotor, tmotorServoContinuousRotation, openLoop)
#pragma config(Motor, port3, BackMotor, tmotorServoContinuousRotation, openLoop)
#pragma config(Motor, port4, LeftMotor, tmotorServoContinuousRotation, openLoop, reversed)
#pragma config(Motor, port5, FrontMotor, tmotorServoContinuousRotation, openLoop, reversed)
#pragma config(Motor, port6, RightArmMotor, tmotorVex393, openLoop)
#pragma config(Motor, port7, LeftArmMotor, tmotorVex393, openLoop, reversed)
#pragma config(Motor, port8, Bucket, tmotorServoContinuousRotation, openLoop)

task usercontrol()
// User control code here, inside the loop

while (true)
//Move forward and backward
motor[port2] = vexRT [Ch3];
motor[port4] = vexRT [Ch3];
//Move side to side
if (vexRT [Ch1] == 0)
motor[port3] = vexRT [Ch4];
motor[port5] = vexRT [Ch4];
//Turn left and right
if (vexRT [Ch1] != 0)
motor[port3] = -vexRT [Ch1];
motor[port5] = vexRT [Ch1];

Take a look at this tutorial that Cody made over on the VEX forums:
