I am currently working on a project where i have a model glider that i need to stabilize while its landing in a gliding fashion. I have to have some kind if lateral stabilization and what i thought of was the IDG300 GYRO, and then using the readings from this to obtain the roll angle and use that to control the ailerons.
But im now realising that this might not work. i basicly want the angle and the IDG300 rate sensor could be used with some succes but due to the drift and the fact that the GYRO does not know when the glider is leveled i dont think it will work very well, especially when considering that the glider might not be leveled when i launch it.
So i was thinking if the ADXL320 accelerometer might be what i need, but i am not sure how it works exactly. I read in the ADXL320 datasheet something about obtaining the tilt from the g readings. Is this something i could use?
Hope someone can help
