6050?  I see an ArduSomethin attached to an I2C IMU. 

I made progress and added GPS to Martin's code and I've got it sending GPS and attitude to the Ardupilot in binary.  Ardupilot even shows a solid blue light now and is smoother with GPS added.

Martin Crown deserves a huge thanks for publishing his code. 

Some of the stuff I was trying might work with his code.

I've flown my Legacy and IMU once this summer.  There's a thread about using DMP on the IMU which has me playing with it again.  I managed to get the IMU talking to the Ardupilot and stabilizing using the awesome DMP.  I also have it outputting to the ArduIMU Test program @38400 nicely.  The DMP reduces the program size to about 1/2 the original size.

I made another use profile, I found everything installed much better on it and runs smoother too

Me too Charles, borrowing the APM though.  Computer keeps crashing and burning which is slowing me up a lot.

I'm still keeping with this project too tho :D
