Choosing a VR Headset Gyro/Accelerometer

I am working on a team project at school for a 1440p VR headset for a competition in Gillette stadium. I was told about a giveaway on Instructables for MediaTek LinkIt ONE. If I get selected, I’d like to know if this new board is compatible with Sparkfun’s 6DOF gyro/accelerometer. Or is there a cheaper solution for an accurate gyro/accelerometer that doesn’t drift?

Please let me know,
