    Hi there!

    Wanted to give my Xbox 360 Gamepad a gyro function, so I connected a MPU-6050 gyro-accelerometer module to an Arduino Pro Micro. This is the first version:

    I’m currently trying to make it calibrate when pushing a button, for setting the ‘zero’ position on the fly.
    There is very little drift, but anyway. :)

    I’ll upload the code when it is closer to finished.

    Added the Z axis and an on-the-fly recalibration option
