GPS_Gyro vs internal accelerometer.

Post by Canyonfive »

Does the Mk3 Racecapture Pro capture the GPS_Gyro data in Yaw/ Deg/ Sec and log it? Or is what is currently logged from the internal Gyro?

I was reading this from an AIM guy in Italy and I would like to implement the channels in RaceCapture.

For best performance, RaceCapture/Pro has an actual 6 axis IMU on board, with 3 Accelerometer channels and 3 Gyro channels; we don't rely on synthesized Gyro data from GPS readings.

Hope this helps!
