Interpreting Accelerometer Readings
I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for how to interpret accelerometer and sensor readings in general for the CoDrone Pro. From the docs, I'd expected the accelerometer to report "9.8" m/s when dropped. Instead, what I get are large numbers in the thousands which also do not seem to be a scalable multiple of 9.8 (which might've instead indicated an issue with units). Is there a conversion factor I am missing and, if so, are there also conversions that need to be made with the readings from the other sensors to get interpretable results as well?
Thank you much!
For reference, in a 5-second action comprised of a takeoff - hover - landing, I get the following data from the accelerometer.
