"Hi, I have been successful in making this work on Arduino UNO.  You would probably need to convert to cortex, though.  Can you show me a small snippet of stm32 code?"

"You are welcome. You stated that you are making a motion-based transmitter for multicopters. Does that mean you are creating a hand held unit utilizing the IMU to output roll pitch which will be transmitted to your multicopter via an RF link like…"

"Andrew, the element14 link did not work for me.  BTW, the ArduImu has a 3-axis accelerometer, 3 axis gyro and a 3 axis magnetometer.  Everything you need to get roll, pitch yaw orientation of the board. Once you have this board spitting…"
