A perfect 3 axis Gyro, cheap as hell – Premium MotionPlus for Wii Remote (White) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Cheapest 3 dimensional gyro board in the whole world It uses Invensense's 650 series with more than 2000 Deg/sec Perfect for hacking ( Interface is I2C and is hacked, just Google MotionPlus hack)
Cons:
Almost none as a gyroscope Some complained about a loose connection to Wii Remote, but I never used it with a Wii remote :)
Other:
Buy this instead of buying gyro breakout boards from Sparkfun and save yourselves more than 80 USD !!
Bottomline:
While original MotionPlus from nintendo is reported to use IDG600 + Epson gyros, this one uses even better Gyros. Technically this should work better than the original Motionplus ! Good product !
