"Thanks Mike, you're a prince.  I've been out of the RC game for some time. My current money pit is tuning an old BMW I picked up recently, so I have to limit myself until the project car is complete. In the mean time, I am going to…"

Cyrus Abdollahi replied to Dr B Holt's discussion Can acceleration in global coordinates be calculated and exported via DCM?
