    Impression:Nice part;

    Pros: This part is a cheap sensitive digital MPU you can buy for your Arduino.
    Cons: You need the library from http://www.i2cdevlib.com/devices/mpu6050 to use it properly.

    Other info:
    I described the method I used and shared the code here for usage with 2 axis servo motors.


    I couldn't find an alternative good code. Just managed to modify the below code from original Jeff Rowberg version to do the motion simulation task. Currently the two axis servo motors follow MPU-6050 breakout motions. Good news is that it is smooth and it does not jitter. I just share it because I could not find a better code.

    There are many applications for this part: Camera head tracking, Camera Gimbal, Segway style 2 wheel vehicles.

    Connection is done through I2C :

    GY521 Arduino connections

    VCC 3.3v or 5v depending on your GY-521 model
    GND Ground
    SCL A5
    SDA A4
    INT D2
    Servo X D9
    Servo Y D10
