LabVIEW?  Not allowed in FLL. 

Rule 4

SOFTWARE - The robot may only be programmed using LEGO MINDSTORMS, RoboLab, NXT-G, or EV3  software (any release).  No other software is allowed.  Patches, add-ons, and new versions of the allowable software from the manufacturers (LEGO and National Instruments) are allowed, but tool kits, including the LabVIEW tool kit, are not allowed.  This rule puts a cap on software-related unfairness, and put a cap on what we can reasonably ask tournament judges to become versed in - thanks for your understanding

My team is in the process of programming the missions and the kids are having major difficulty using the gyro to make turns.   Turns expected to be 90 degrees stop at degrees approximately.   Any hints?
