IMU for the quad

Guys, Its time we get the right IMU for the quad, I believe some of you might have worked on quads before and know the right sensors to buy. This task involves searching for the right IMU, discussing it with the team and finally buying it. Let us all get involved and search for the same.

Thanks @Jaume and @Harsha for participating in the task.I am planning to see some codes available to get the sensor values, and later write my own code.

Have a look at the GY-80 sensor. It has acc, gyro, mag and pressure(for quad altitude). The sensor is also I2C!!
Around US$ 20,00

I would prefer this IMU is a little bit costly but I think it is more accurate for a drone

Gaurav Yadav The Eachine H8 Mini is a good micro quad for beginners. I brought it up here because it’s all up weight is only 20 grammes, including a 150 mAh 1s lipo cell. You might not want to pack unnecessary sensors or components as you’re using coreless motors.

Do note that the H8 Mini comes with a very versatile flight controller. You might want to buy it for practice and reverse engineer the board.
