How do I choose sensor for compas
#1
A good compass is the basement to build a satisfying autopilot.
Many different IMU sensors are available on the market, mainly addressing the drone applications.
My question is : WHICH IMU should I select ?
  • It needs to be in the list of those compatible with Pypilot ;
  • It should have the best dynamic ;
  • It should have the best S/N ratio ;
  • to keep clarity in design, the module (breakout) should NOT combine with other sensors (environment)
  • of course it should be affordable (a few tens of roros!)
The above considerations take me to this point : Dev. team, please tell us what is your preferred IMU module for Pypilot  ?

I will have more questions regarding physical on board installation...
