Create a circle in sketcher, set a radius constraint;
25.4*2.5 won't work, FreeCAD will not accept a second decimal point. Same in today's master as it was then for me.

Yes you are correct. I tested the expression:
2.77 * 25.4 = 70,358
But overlooked result was not 70,358 mm but 70,358 m. But i was able to input second 25.4 just fine. I guess that comes down on different system locale being used. For example:
25.4*2.5 won't work
Both will work for me BUT result would be 254*2=508 and 254*25=6350. If i enter 25,4*2,5 that won't work (25,4*2,). Anyway indeed for now avoid expressions with . and , in sketcher constraints dialogues.
Suggestion @bejant gave therefore sounds better for now. Temporarily change units in preferences and input everything in inches and after change units in preferences back to mm.
