with cheaper 3 axis digital gyros and Accelerometers coming out like the Itg 3200 and bma180, for under $70 it would be possible to make a highly accurate digital imu. (for the prototype, around $50…Continue
"i was more thinking of the resistor and caps are they 0603.
If you are going to get the boards made get them made as a panel some thing like 5x5 or some thing like that/
I designed a rc switch that is .5x.75 and i have them on a panel the is…"
"Low cost DIY IMU? That sounds awesome. Thanks for publishing this. It looks really professional.
Up until now I've been avoiding such a project as it seemed intimidating, but I'd love to be part of a group buy."
"you could find someone to put it together in the usa for you, like a couple of diy drones members wanting to help. also did you look at my imu shield. it is my first schematic and boardin eagle besides the ftdi tutorial at sparkfun and i am looking…"

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I want to create/help create uav hardware, I like the challenge. starting with a few additions to an existing autopilot system and working my way up to a whole autopilot system. Imus are my favorite because of their complexity and decreasing cost.
