Gyro turnrate + drift measurement

Postby WillM » Wed Dec 19, 2012 4:10 pm

I'm about to purchase a DL-1 Mk3 to replace my current DL-1, and am determining the additional features I need/want.

Is the gyro turnrate + drift measurement something a typical club racer would find useful? I'm not 100% clear on what information the gyro logs (pitch? dive? yaw? other?) and how I would make use of the data.

Does anyone here use it, and to what benefit?

Thanks,

Will

It is simpler and more accurate to look at tire slip angles (simpler than inferred methods with steering angle and math). You get to know if you are using all the grip the tires can offer.
