Post Shaft Encorder and PID program
Is it possible to do a PID program with Shaft Encoders and a motor? If yes, please show how. Thank you very much

Of course! You can use a PID controller on anything :D
Basically, your "set point" will be an encoder value you are trying to get to, and you will manipulate the power level to get there. Depending on how far you want to move (your kP, kI, and kD), set your motor(s) to a higher/lower power level.

and also quadrotors. Quadrotors!
