Actually i am trying to write my own Flight Controller for Quad-Copter that is controlled by Remote over radio signals.So for a flight controller i have to buy a inertial measurement unit(IMU).So problem is that i visit a two different sites both selling a MPU6050 Triple Axis Accelerometer and Gyro.But both sites name it same but it's look different IMU unit that one is buying from hallroad.org.and that one is buying from spartfun.is that same IMU or different if they are different what is difference b/w them?Which is best for Quad-Copter Flight-Controller?

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Robotics user3699039, but I'm afraid that shopping questions really aren't a good fit for a stack exchange site. We prefer practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Take a look at How to Ask and tour for more information on how stack exchange works, and the Robotics question checklist for details of how to write a good question. $\endgroup$ – Mark Booth Feb 8 '17 at 14:26
  • $\begingroup$ @holmeski but that i think its valid question about products and actually my question is that which is best imu unit both them for flight controller $\endgroup$ – user3699039 Feb 9 '17 at 9:48
  • $\begingroup$ Whether you ask "which is best", or "what should I buy", you are still asking for answers which are primarily opinion-based. These answers are limited in scope to a particular price point, market and point in time, so are unlikely to be useful to future visitors to the site, so they are considered off-topic. If you were asking "How do I evaluate the suitability of products for this situation, given these constrains, using these two products as examples" I could see that you might get answers which would be as valid a year from now as they are today. $\endgroup$ – Mark Booth Feb 9 '17 at 16:19
  • $\begingroup$ @MarkBooth actually you didn't understand my question i was asking about which one IMU unit can be used in Quad-Controller for Flight-Controller development purpose $\endgroup$ – user3699039 Feb 9 '17 at 17:19
  • $\begingroup$ That may be what you intended to ask, but it's not what you actually asked. If you edit your question so that it isn't primarily asking for an opinion, we can re-open this question for you and tidy up (delete) these comments. $\endgroup$ – Mark Booth Mar 20 '17 at 11:39

Both products are based on the same chip - MPU6050. I won't be surprised if passive components used in both modules will be the same too. That means, that from performance side, there will be probably no visible difference. The only thing that differs those two is their interfaces - the red one has two additional pins. Check what they do, and think if you need them.

  • $\begingroup$ i got your point but in red one there is z axis is mention but in second one there is not mention of z axis.one more thing the blue one can be used in quad-copter for writing flight-controller purpose.i am very thank full @mactro $\endgroup$ – user3699039 Feb 8 '17 at 14:07
