Wii motion plus, Flybarless stabilazion for Heli.

Ok, ive searched the internet and cant find anything. I would like to turn a Wii motion plus into a Flybarless stabilazion for a heli. Nothing fancy, i just need 3-axis stabilazion. Copatible with Anolg servos, HS-65hb if it matters.

The gyro in the WiiMotion Plus is only 2-axis, not 3.

The gyro in the WiiMotion Plus is only 2-axis, not 3.
All the documentation on all the hacking sites say it is 3-axis.

Inside WiiMotion Plus is two 2-axix gyros => combined 3-axis.

I stand corrected.

search the arduino site for projects which incorporate it.
There are quite a few, though most are limited in their ability to stabalise effectively (ie they tend to float around about level). I know they are there somewhere because i've just been doing a university project with the nunchuck and motion+ mounted/controlling a climbing robot.
once you get i2c working with the devices its quite easy to ascertain the data, the hard part is using it correctly.

otherwise go arduIMU, better developed code base to work from, and a quicker turnaround to have things working.
