@Lauszus

Thanks for the reply!

And offcourse for the samples.

I''ll be using some pretty strong servos which i'll be using inside brackets to hold the force and weight.

Thanks,

Niels

This is awesome, and probably just what i need!

I'm planning to create a gyroscopic platform on which i will mount a GoPro camera or a Contour camera. I will be mounting this onto a motorbike on an actual race track, so it will go through some pretty intense forces. Then i want to compensate the camera angles using e few servos. I only need to compensate for the pitch and roll at this time.

I have experience with arduino's and the coding but im not familiar with the gyro and accelerator sensors.

I do have a few questions:

Offcourse the first question is; considering the forces applied on the sensors by putting it on a motorbike. Will this still work?

and; is using a gyro and accelero enough to fully remove the drift or will i also need the magnetometer (i need the platform to remain absolutely level to the human eye)?

and; are the resulting values usable to compensate using servo's?

i will probably be using this board with my arduino:

Thanks in advance,
