Mounting/ orentation imu - FabianT - 2020-07-15

I am building a new tinypilot and wonder about the orientation of the imu. Can it be mounted in any way i wish? I have a mpu9250. In the mpu documentation the x y and z axis are definned. So i wonder if i should mount it so that x of the compass is poiting forward? Or is everything solved during calibration?
