I've assembled a quadrocopter and now I'm going to design a flight controller for it, using Arduino. I can not use any of flight controllers, which you can buy in the store, only hand-made. So, I really want to find the EASIEST hardware solution for it.
The only gyro I've found at local stores is digital
LSM303 DLH. But I doubt hardly about one thing. At my local store it's being sold in QFN package. I've found this gyro being sold with a breakout board. I don't get it, why are there some other components on it? Can I just connect wires from the chip to arduino and read the values?
Or maybe you can advice some other gyro?
