ArduIMU V3 ready for pre-order and check our new color!

Hi there! Finally you can pre-order the ArduIMU V3 here.. You can find more info abut it in my last post here

The final version of the board for full production is here, I'm expecting to start shipping them this Friday or Monday. 

We are still working on documentation and giving the final cosmetic touches to the example code to have it ready before you have one in your hands and at the same time we are shipping samples to developers to do a full DCM integration.


From now on our new color will purple! All our new products will feature a Lilypad style look! 


(Note: this is a stand-alone IMU, and is not designed to be a replacement for the "Oilpan" IMU shield of ArduPilot Mega.)

@Gerry Those gyros are very accurate. We are preparing an example code that includes sensor fusion. Mag data is fused outside...

@Eric, good post you actually beat us to it! I'm adding a tutorial that we drafted for anyone out there working on their arduimus, glad we could help out!

@Harry Yes I think a few people will produce some code over the coming weeks. To do the job properly and neatly will take longer than a quick hack because it can be adopted for the ap core. That way any changes will be carried through to new ap versions.

I'll remind myself of the v2 code and add a note over the weekend

If I remember right the pitch and roll are in degrees -180 to +180 but I might be wrong. It is documented somewhere but I haven't got a month spare to hunt through the wiki :) Even then it might be out of date.

For what it's worth, the "whoami" message is also a 0.  Is there a piece of mpu6000 code I could put in to reset something or is it totalled? 

Comment by AVS on December 9, 2011 at 4:09pm

it's interesting that you get that because I got all zeros sometimes when i tested the board. It was only sometimes and worked after a reset. Have you reset the board by removing the power? Not got a solder short? Not holding the board by any of the pins when it starts?

Comment by AVS on December 9, 2011 at 4:13pm

re: whoami. I guess the mpu6000 might be totalled but that would show that some extra protection is required in the hardware design. The arduino chip and the mag are still working.

Try a clean start by pluging usb into pc and without touching the board.

Are you sure you have not altered the test code?

Harry, what do you mean? You shouldn't have had to pay a penny to have the bootloader reflashed. Please PM so we can clear this up.

Again, if anybody needs the bootloader reflashed, 3D Robotics will do it for free, including all shipping. If you choose to do it yourself, it may damage the board and will void the warrenty, so we really recommend that everyone take advantage of the 3D Robotics offer.
