  • Maxbotix XL-MaxSonar-EZ0 High Performance Sonar Module
    Simple to Use
    Review by Nathan
    Initially, I had purchased this device to work with my APM 2.5, but later found that APM firmware does not yet support range finders. To date, I have not been able to establish proof of concept. The unit was easy to assemble and appears to be functioning correctly with good accuracy.

  • Maxbotix I2CXL-MaxSonar-EZ4 High Performance Sonar
    Amazing Sonar!!!
    Review by Alvaro
    I use it in multirotor applications and due its comunicacion is through I2C port, it is less affected by the interferences of my motors and wiring, I recommend it.

  • Adafruit Thermocouple Amplifier
    Plug and Play
    Review by Daniel
    The unit was easy to interface and seem to be very accurate. There is no noise on the measures and the offset is close to non existent. The drivers were easy to use and allow multiple board to be used on any pin.

  • RPLIDAR 360° Laser Scanner
    Great product that delivers on all fronts
    Review by Raymond
    It's easy to judge the hardware as good or bad but the software, both drivers and example client code, are where products like this usually evade QA and reviewers. I was really happy to see that the drivers and SDK all just worked and the reference implementations were clear enough that I was able to get my own C application up and running in less than 3 hours.

    Performance is good, at first I was made nervous by the highly mechanical aspect of this: whirring, spinning things with belts tend to be fragile, but it's been running for days now without any problems.

  • Sharp GP2Y0A710K0F IR Range Sensor - 100 to 550cm

    Review by Mario V
    It works great, it has a very long range, for the price an money, good choice.

Sounds like a great and unique project! I'm not sure you'll be able to use a gyro sensor for that: gyro sensors drift with time, so you'll end up having the same problem with misalignment... Instead, I would recommend using a compass module like this one: * http://www.robotshop.com/en/lsm303d-3-axis-accelerometer-compass.html?product-code=RB-Pol-230 ...
