TL, DR : What is the method(in terms of sensors and algorithm) to get the roll, pitch and yaw of an aircraft at any instant.
I am planning to build a hobby aircraft. I am so confused about which kind of sensors should I use and how to use them in order to get the roll, pitch and yaw angles of the aircraft.
I think I also have some problems about understanding the concept.
What are the ways/methods/agents to get the orientation of an aircraft at any instant?
In some sources there is something going on as the importance of order of the application of roll,pitch and yaw. But I cannot understand why this is related.
I have used accelerometer values by inputting them into some formulas on the internet(which everybody uses but nobody explains well) to get the roll and pitch values. However could not understand how to manipulate them in order to meet my requirements.
I also have basic understanding about what a gyroscope is.
Thanks in advance.
