Your best bet might be to find some example code for your sensor and try loading it up on an arduino.

Also, be aware that, if you're trying to set this up on something like a minimOSD, you'll have to solder directly to the MCU pins in order to access the i2c port on the ATMega.
No I bought a board from someone ( designed by dennis) I had designed my own but that one will be done later with imu and bmp soldered directly

I do have an airspeed sensor I could mail to you.( one used on a DOSD) I was thinking of using an eagle tree airspeed sensor since they already give sample code. which i could buy one of those and mail to you. Which would probably be easier to implement.
pseudo code airspeed address is 0xEAA

byte data[2];
signed short reading = 0xFFFF;
i2c_start();
// select sensor in write mode
if (!(i2c_write(SENSOR_ADDRESS | I2C_WRITE_BIT)))
{
// send "read data" command to sensor
if (!i2c_write(0x07)) {
i2c_restart(); // perform I2C restart
// select sensor in read mode
if (!i2c_write(| SENSOR_ADDRESS | I2C_READ_BIT)
) {
// read two bytes of sensor data
data[0] = i2c_read(1);
data[1] = i2c_read(0);
reading = *((signed short *)(&data[0]));
}
}
}
i2c_stop();
