Hello Kurtis,

The code in "arduimu" is the initial release that adapts the arduimu to paparazzi. If you have followed the steps in the readme file it should have worked. Also, the tiny_2 and the Twog are basically the same board, so it's not the source of your problem. The "arduimu_basic" is a version of the same code that I have modified to get rid of all the unnecessary parts. You can use it with the module "ins_arduimu_basic.xml".
If you have a way to test it (oscilloscope, logical analyzer), check that the data on the i2c bus are correct.

The IMU seems to be doing its calibration sequence as before (blue flashing lights, then stops).
I have just been bench testing and do not have GPS, but this was never a problem before. The servos and PFD would move when tilting the IMU, even without GPS. Was there a code update that requires a GPS lock before it will start working?
I also found that there are three separate folders of ArduIMU firmware in the "firmwares/non-ap/arduimu_Firmware_WithGps" folder:
- "arduimu"
- "arduimu_basic"
- "s joyce Feb2011"
Which of these should be used? I tried flashing each of them to the IMU, but I'm still having the same problem.
I'm not sure what to do next...

Does the blue light on the arduimu flashes on and off or it is off after
the initial calibration is done?
During calibration all 3 leds blink at a fast rate but when calibration
is done the blue led blinks at ~1Hz to indicate GPS does not have a lock
yet and then it stays solid on when the gps locks.
