1st message and 1st mistake : I was posting in Chris Anderson's blog !! Repaired by this new discussion ...>>
First, felicitations for a such interesting forum, and happy new year 2010 !
I am a futur new 9DOF-razor user, from France.
I will be a brand new IMU user, but already familiar with airborne electronic equipments (my job !) and with flying hobbies (20 years of practice -and crash !!!- in gliders, F5B, engined & electric helicopters, ...)
I 've just bought my 9DOF-Razor board and waiting for it (*) , with its FTDI basic breakout 3.3V interface, and a Locosys LS20031 GPS.
My preliminary goal is to learn its sensors way of work, and pratice step by step their associated algorithms.
In a second time, may be an "home made" quadrocopter, with flight plan GPS assisted, RTH, ....
But I already have few short questions :
1. I have equipped my PC with AVR studio :
==> is it compatible with the FTDI interface for code download ?
2. I have started to compile the code provided in SparkFun 9DOF-board page. Few libs are missing
(types.h , defs.h , i2c.h , ...)
==> are they standard or attached to another compilation tool (arduino, Win AVR, ...)
Thanks a lot for your help, and best regards,
(*) I have just received the boards !!!
So my gift for the New Year : a picture of my equipment... (scale is cm, and 1 euro coin)
