  • Hmm I checked around on the error and it says the PC just isn’t communicating with the board. So I checked out the 9 axis and saw a scratch precisely on the Rx line of the 9 axis. Sparkfun sold me a defunct IMU. I’ll have to contact their customer service…

  • There seriously needs to be some step by step instructions for the 9dof which actually work. I’ve tried to getting it to work via the arduino Mega 1280 and nothing. I just bought an ftdi breakout which came yesterday and still nothing. It sends data to the serial port flawlessly. However, I can’t upload jack via the arduino or the ftdi. Now this device is very important for my project and it would be nice if it worked! the error I am getting is
    avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp0x72
    avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp 0x51
    What’s the big deal? Uploading data to this device shouldn’t be this hard!!!!

  • Sold out, when will be back in? I’m anxious to get this kit so I can learn micro controllers over the summer.

No public wish lists :(
