  • Hi everybody!

    I’ve bought two MPU-6050 evaluation boards and started using them with the code provided by Jeff Rowberg (btw really great work), namely the example to get raw data. what happens is that keeping the board still i get x,y,z acceleration values around 260, -92, 24216, respectively…when i turn the board so that gravity vector appears on x and y axes i see the value 16300 on each axis, which was what i expected since it corresponds to 1g. What i dont get is the 24216 on z axis. When i try the same code on the other board this doesnt happen and the values are just like expected.

    Does anyone have any idea why this happens? Is one of my boards broken?


No public wish lists :(
