What is a 6 Axis Gyro Quadcopter?
A quadcopter is supposed to fly stable, particularly in a windy environment.
Engine speeds, Gyro and Accelerometer are the core pieces of information that are transmitted in a negative feedback loop to prevent the drone from going into unwanted oscillations.
The gyro is in charge of resisting side forces maintaining a reference direction in the navigation of the drone.
It allows the calculation of orientation and rotation, providing stability to the flight.
The original gyroscope is a wheel spinning around an axis which is independent from the rotation of the mounting.
The evolution of technology brought several modern gyros such as electronics, fiber optics and quantum.
The 6 axis gyro system, adopted by most modern quadcopters drones, consists of 3 more accelerometers in addition to the three standard orientation sensors.
Having six sensors makes easy to detect both unusual attitude and a fall.
