I got my start in robotics with LEGO Mindstorms, so I'm glad to see continued sensor development there. Here's the latest: a 6DoF IMU from Dexter Industries. No word yet on what kind of software support it will have for sensor fusion.

So now I will steal the legobox from my son to make some 10'' test propellers :)

This post made me regret selling my NXT. The lego approach is just wonderful in the sense that you don't have to worry about the hardware and you can fully concentrate on the design and programming (not having to do tons of soldering and HW debugging). But even this sensor won't change the fact that I'm never going to fly with an NXT onboard any of my planes ever again... ;-)  *covertly knocking on wood*
