  • When the gyro is not working, maybe check the AZ. This input should be low. When you do not control this input: there is a pull-up resistor to the high side (Vcc) inside the gyro.
    Important: the directions that are marked on the break-out board (positive rate for X and Y) are WRONG. I measured negative signals where I expected a positive rate! I checked with the spec sheet from InvenSense and the specsheet confirms my findings. Be aware when you use the gyro for control!

No public wish lists :(
