I'm looking to buy a single axis gyro (can also be 2 or 3, but only need to measure the Y-axis) that can detect up to 1200 deg/s (it's for a device which has an 'arm' and can move only back and forth, but quite fast. Sparkfun's Accelerometer and Gyro buying guide is not helpfull as most of the products in there are not updated and not sold anymore.
Anyone has any suggestions? Oh, and bytheway: does it really matter which axis' are measured? i can just position the gyro differently right? or does that really not work? if not, then i need to measure angular velocity rotating a Y-axis (the arm moves straight away from you).
Thanks for any tips or gyro's i can buy!
