Testing the IMU380ZA-200

I have the breakouts in! Started testing all the IMUs and so far they each have something to say, but I want to do some more in depth testing to see if there are any failure modes. Someone mentioned to me that I might see them reset after a couple minutes, just due to the hinkiness of where I got them from: eBay. Their modules did that at least.

I am thinking I could get away with this though, just with some clever fault detection, isolation, and recovery. Integrating off a backup gyroscope for a couple seconds probably isn't the worst. But who knows. I just need to make sure it doesn't happen during a critical point in operation :)
