Angular velocity callback verbiage
« on: October 08, 2019, 17:59:06 »
Using the angular velocity callback for the IMU2, it appears that returned values are in degrees TIMES 16 such that to see angular velocity, one must DIVIDE the returned values by 16. 

The website states the callback: "Returns the calibrated angular velocity from the gyroscope for the x, y and z axis in 1/16 °/s." which is not what I am seeing.  Am I missing something?

The documentation states that if you get a value of 1 back it corresponds to 1/16 °/s.

So you have to divide the value of 1 by 16 to get °/s. I think the documentation is correct?
