Thoughts on MinIMU-9 v2 Gyro, Accelerometer, and Compass (L3GD20 and LSM303DLHC Carrier) sensor package



At $40 USD it is not cheap. There are however working examples of interfacing to the beaglebone in python. Curious if anyone has been eyeing other alternatives.


the price does not seem that bad compared to similar products on sparkfun(i havent looked in-depth on this)

it would be really nice to get a IMU integrated, a compass is really nice to have on a ROV, you can easily loose track of direction when decending and in unclear water.
