Hi,I suffered a pretty bad crash last week and since then I can't get my compass to work anymore. However, I am not sure if it's the compass that's actually broken or maybe my IMU board.The compass…Continue

Hi Jan,

If you have some questions about DCM, post them on my comment wall. That way it won't clutter up the forum, but if anyone else is interested in the answers, they will be able to see them. I think that is what the comment wall is for.

Best regards,

Hi Jan,

I am not familiar with the ArduCopter implementation. Jason Short would probably be the best one to ask about the ArduCopter strategy for accounting for acceleration in roll-pitch gyro drift compensation.

You have to account for the effect of acceleration on the gravity reference vector used in the roll-pitch gyro drift compensation calculations when the average value of the acceleration in the body frame of reference is not zero over a significant period of time.

Best regards,

Hi Jan,

You asked me about sampling gyros and accelerometers under low sampling rates. Unless you are doing "dead reckoning" from the accelerometers, (I assume that you are not) get as many gyro samples as you can. Your suggestion of getting one accelerometer vector and as many gyro vectors as you can in each communication pass of the I2C seems to be the best approach.

Best regards,

Bill Premerlani
