    I just got the 9DOF and neglected to realize that the FTDI breakout that I have does not bring out any of the control lines. Can I still upload new sketches with only TX/RX/Gnd ?
    I am able to interact with the demo code just fine and test the sensors, however when I use the Arduino IDE it fails to sync up with the board.
    I read that I would need to reset the board and have tried hundreds of times, with no luck.
    I was thinking that perhaps the software waits for the board to throw its DTR high or something. This is my first encounter with the Arduino, so go easy on me :)

No public wish lists :(
