Hi guys, I'm new here, hope you could help me
I'm setting up a Quadrocopter (Arduino controlled self-evidently
) and for this purpose I need a PID controller.
I already got my gyro L3G4200d (not the one from Sparkfun (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10612), but one with the same chip (http://www.play-zone.ch/de/elektronik-kit-zubehoer/sensoren/drei-achs-gyroskop-breakout-l3g4200d.html) yeah it is in german
My problem is, if I'm reading values (or controlling servos with it) it sometimes suddenly stops transmitting data or (even worse) gets stuck with random values.
I don't want this to happen sometimes in mid-flight, so I hope you could help me fixing this problem.

is the power supply stable?
r there enough capacitors near that chip?
u could ask the manufacturer, what may cause that fünny behavior...
