  • Got this working using the bildr tutorial very fast with the visualization. It looks great at first but has constant drift when secured to a table… yaw drifts at -1 degree per second, pitch at around -.1 degree per second, and roll at about .1 degree per second… is this normal? This pretty much makes it worthless except for very short term motion changes.

  • I was a bit concerned with all the comments about it not working but it has worked out of the box for me. I got two series-1 xbee modules, an xbee shield, and xbee explorer. I used x-ctu to confirm the modules worked and updated the firmware. Using the default settings I am able to send/receive data just fine. I am using the DLINE setting with pins 2/3 (rx/tx) and software serial to free up the uart for debugging. The only downside is the softserial is half duplex which means corruption when sending and receiving at the exact same time which is easily fixed with message checksums and resend requests for my application.

No public wish lists :(
