    Frequent contributor hugof is actually/supposedly the CEO and founder of ElectricImp. We/I may or may not always be completely in tune with his frequency, but I admire his contributions and answers here on this forum. I shows how big a driver Sparkfun is and how important the Sparkfun community is, but it also show how seriously Hugo/ElectricImp take us, the Sparkfun clients. That I can only applaud : kind thanks Hugo !

    Dear Clint, I second the idea of a bidirectional current sensor similar to an aircraft ammeter. As in My application would be a motorcycle monitor, where the bettery will at times be discharged (idle) and then again be charged (higher revs with little load). I am not nearly good enough to develop one myself, so just want to convey my support to either you or Dean to implement the circuit.

    Picture shows 6A @250V, 10A @ 125V, and yes I second: round mounts easily !

    It’s a bit misleading that 4th picture with the breakout board, as that has only the 4 pins of the Red/Green rotary encoder. And on its product page, that refers to THE rotary encoder, not specifically the RG one. One could easily be confused by this and order 2 incompatible items. That said, can’t wait for the RGB rotary breakout board.

    Does this autoreset like a standard arduino whenever you open or close a connection, or can that ‘functionality’ be switched off (other than by the resistor trick) ?

    Great product, against all those asking for a higher rated version, can I ask for a smaller one : I would like to measure individual circuits (areas, appliances, lights) in the house. something like 2 amp, 5 amp, and 10 amp would be cool. Sign me up for 30pcs in total in that case.

    can this be PWM-ed with an arduino for dimming ?

    Superb experiment ! Thanks for sharing.

    Dear Sparkfun, I love the specs, but how do I get from running an arduino to managing this IMU ? What should I do/read to close the gap ? I don’t even understand how this IMU can integrate with a flying machine of any kind. Can it control servos, or does it need to be attached to another unit still ? What’s the Xbee for, can it serve as comms platform only or are its digital/analog ports accessible ? What are the configuration options of this unit, and how can it be compared with a setup based on just the 9DoF IMU stick ?

No public wish lists :(
