Further observed missing blocks
(I got the package -kit and it looks well)

MaQueen Plus has encoders for the motors. GREAT!
But no blocks to access the encoder
Maybe

robot move forward at RPM ,<rpm>
or
robot move forward for DIST <distance> which can be a measure of clicks in encoder or full wheel rotation.

How soon can this version be available... I have major plans for this product :)

Hi, please update mind+ to the latest one and select the extensions as MAQUEEN PLUS, not MAQUEEN.
All functions you mentioned have already realized in the MAQUEEN PLUS extension.

Hello dd as instructed. Uninstall... then download and install Mind+ V1.6.4 RC10
found in http://mindplus.cc/download-en.html

Unfortunately, it is the same. Extensions does not have MaQueen PLUS in Kit options.
Are you referring to a different version? Can you provide the download link?

Sorry, I forgot to remind you to switch mind+ to offline mode first, then select a board like the micro: bit, and select shield, and you will find Maqueen Plus.
Please try it again.

Tried your suggestion and found MaQueen Plus in SHIELD
Check, I found how to access all 6 line tracing sensors
NOT OK, ENCODER is not used for both left and right motor.
Encoder gives possibility of moving while counting the turns.

But motor commands are the following

maqueenPlus.motorRun(maqueenPlus.LEFT, maqueenPlus.CW, 200);
maqueenPlus.mostotCompensation(maqueenPlus.LEFT, 200);

Where 200 is a function of power (or voltage) and NOT RPM or distance to travel.
I will need a way to USE the ENCODER automatically during motor movement.

Thank you

Can you provide an answer please?

Do you AGREE that there are NO MOTOR COMMANDS to use the ENCODER sensors?
And that you are working on an UPGRADE to this effect?
