Hi guys, me and a couple more guys at http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/imu-3000 we are orginizing a group buying of stuff from invensense.com.

They sells pretty cool things like IMU-3000, ITG-3200 and lot more. See http://invensense.com/mems/products.html

They have an online shop but unfortunately the shipping costs to Europe are crazy like 53$ or something around that.

So, we are trying to organize a group buying. One of us makes the order and receive all the stuff. Then he'll mail them to the other people with regular EU shipment which will be pretty cheap.

If anyone here want to join us simply contact me: fvaresano at yahoo dot it.

Thanks,

Fabio Varesano

For those who don't know what an IMU3000 is, it's essentially a three-axis gyro that has sensor fusion on-chip. Paired with a three-axis accelerometer it becomes a complete IMU.

Invensense is selling evaluation boards that are essentially complete IMUs for only $60. Product page is here: http://www.invensense.com/mems/gyro/imu3000.html

There are distributors in Germany and UK, see bottom of - http://invensense.com/mems/distributors.html - or do they have "European" prices? (eg 1$ = 1€)

Back in September I wasn't able to find any EU distributor. But, as you pointed out, it seems there are some now. I'll getting in touch with them, I'll write here what they tell me.

Thanks for the head up.
