I recently got a new fangled phidgets spatial 3/3/3 but am getting relatively noisy readings on the gyro. Interestingly, this only occurs on my linux platform (Ubuntu 10.4 32 bit). On my mac, the gyro readings appear quite stable.
As an example, when the gyro is completely stationary and using the Spatial_simple test application, I am getting angular rates (x axis) ranging from -1.69 degrees to 1.903 degrees PER data packet. Is this normal?
Would appreciate any help! Thanks!
