What's the point in doing this with another card ? I think, you even take a chance to be slower since you have to transfer the data =P.
Wind affects it greatly
I have seen this one https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11486 which doesn't look bad.
the Sparkfun board requires 3.3V power
Yeah I have seen MPU-9150 breakout bord at cheaper prices (here for instance => http://www.drotek.fr/shop/en/home/153-mpu9150-gyro-accelerometer-magnetometer.html)Quotethe Sparkfun board requires 3.3V power I thought the Arduino had a pin "3,3V" to supply 3,3V, and a pin "5V" to supply 5V ?
Yeah, but the digital pins are able to supply only 5v which may damage the IMU.
3V3. A 3.3 volt supply generated by the on-board regulator. Maximum current draw is 50 mA.

A 3.3 volt supply generated by the on-board regulator. Maximum current draw is 50 mA.Anyway the breakout board (http://www.drotek.fr/shop/fr/home/153-mpu9150-gyro-accelerometre-magnetometre.html) can be powered with either 3.3V or 5V but I still would like to understand Another question for IMU, What is the best way to fix it on the quadcopter frame. I see a lot a people use double side tape and foam (instead of screws) to reduce the vibration induced from the motors. But can I apply directly the double side tape on the board?
