  1. Review by Ben verified purchaser

    Works fine for what it is. At the time I didn't realise that a 6axis unit will suffer from yaw drift. After calibrating it it detects pitch and roll fantastically. But on power up the yaw seems to be random within +/-30deg and drifts approx 1-3deg/min.

    After researching online this is an issue that will occur since there is no reference to what 0 yaw should be. The only reference it has is gravity. To get an accurate yaw you need a unit that includes a magnetometer.

    So, this unit is fine if you understand its limitations and can work with that. If you want to know how fast you are turning you can get that, but you can't accurately get which direction you are facing. (Posted on 2/10/2018)

  2. Review by Nigel verified purchaser

    Worked straight out of the box! Busy now refining codes that can truely unleash a cheap but power module! (Posted on 14/08/2018)

  3. Review by Haidar verified purchaser

    it is a 6 Axis Gyroscope not 3. (Posted on 4/09/2017)

  4. Review by Neil - Cool product worked as expected. verified purchaser

    Now flying great in my home built quad copter. (Posted on 7/07/2014)

  5. Review by Justin - Must have! verified purchaser

    This is a great little accelerometer well worth your money. This I2C unit packs a 16bit ADC the capacity to operate a slave I2C bus plus many neat programable features. This unit seems a must for those into robotics. I have used this unit in vibration measurement. This unit is a must have in your box of sensors. (Posted on 25/10/2013)
