question about motor movement in simtools output testing

    My Motion Simulator:
    2DOF, 3DOF, DC motor, Arduino

    so while waiting for my motor to arrive, I am playing around with Simtools just to understand how it works by using smaller RC motor.

    I notice in Axis assignment when the direction of the motor set to same direction, in the output testing you can see the motor will move at the same time.. but if I change the direction one of the motor, in output testing I can see the the motor will move one by one.. for example, motor 1 will move up to 30% then between 30% to 60% motor 2 moves..and then motor 1 again and then motorr 2 again..

    Is this something that is expected? i have tried using motomonster and cytron controller.. both give same result..my motor connected to same PSU..

    the reason I ask because i think in the game, for example for surge,only one motor will move upward and the other will not until it reach up to certain percentage of amount of axis to use.. so your rig will incline to the right or left instead going upward...

    I have put the video to show what I mean...
