Last week i bought the MMA7361 accelerometer for my tricopter. (http://www.ebay.de/itm/MMA7361-Accelerometer-Sensor-Acceleration-Angle-Sensor-Arduino-SE05002-C52-/271388569518)
The accelerometer works very well, when the 3 Motors are shut down. But when the motors are spinning( which makes some vibrations) the accelerometer flips out and allways send really unusable data. I read some threads here and fixed the accelerometer on different kinds of foam with no good result. The vibration/noise from the motor isn't really heavy, but it seems to be heavy enough, to let the sensor freak out. I heard, that there is an other opportunity: The MPU6050( https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11028 ). My Questions to you are:
Do I propably have better results with the MPU6050? I've heard from a low pass filter in MMA7361, how do i use it? Is there some kind of "stabilization filter" or -algorithm (maybe kalman filter)?
I have to excuse, because I am an beginner in this field and really need some help. :cold_sweat:
thanks in advance, :) diiaf
