Had it working in less than five minutes!

After finding some code, the unit seems to work pretty well... I used this board on a quadcopter to help with the inherent stability issues.

If you want my opinion, buy it somewhere else and save money.

I am fairly new to Arduino projects, so this was a perfect breakout board to get my feet wet. The major down side to this product is that its difficult to find info on it (as said by other users). After finding some code, the unit seems to work pretty well... I used this board on a quadcopter to help with the inherent stability issues.

Hopefully I'll save some people the time to dig up this information. Here is a link for those doing arduino projects:
[...] --> See first comment on this post

here's the source code for the I2C library I used:
[...] --> See first comment on this post

This library contains two helpful examples; one that allows the raw accelerometer and gyroscope values to be accessed, and the other calculates Euler angles, yaw pitch roll, world accelerations, and quaternions. If you using this with an arduino, make sure that the I2C library and a MPU6050 library are in the Arduino sketch folder, this will allow it to compile correctly.

This was also difficult to find:

The GY-521 breakout board is wired to the Arduino Mega as followed:
Vcc - 3.3V
GND - GND
SCL - SCL (pin 21)
SDA - SDA (pin 20)
ADO - GND
INT - D2

The GY-521 breakout board is wired to the Arduino Uno as followed:
Vcc - 3.3V
GND - GND
SCL - D5
SDA - D4
ADO - GND
INT - D2

After working with this thing for a day or two, I got it to work. I wrote these instructions for the complete beginner to follow. The pinout goes Arduino 5v to Vcc, ground to ground, A4 to SDA, A5 to SCL, XDA and XCL are not connected, AD0 to ground, and finally digital pin 2 to INT. Note, SCL and SDA pins may be moved around between Arduino boards.

Next, go grab the I2Cdevlib. Just do a google search to find the main website, then the download is on github. Head to the highest level directory and there will be a download zip button on the right. Download, extract the file. The file should have the path i2cdevlib->Arduino-> LOTS of sensor boards. Copy I2Cdev and MPU6050 into your Arduino library folder (Arduino->library) (You can copy all of the sensors to the library if you wish). Restart Arduino IDE if it is running and try out the MPU6050_raw sketch.

Overall, $5 isn't that bad for a 3 axis gyro and accelerometer. It is a bit of a pain to find documentation for but there is a page for the GY521 / MPU6050 on the Arduino website.

Hope this helps.

Edit! I started playing around with this chip again and was able to get it work 100%. It turns out, there is plenty of documentation for this chip, you just need to know where to look (Nearly every hobby level multicopter uses this same sensor). It really is just a standard 3v I2C device.

Within the MPU6050_DMP6 sketch, at about line 90-120ish, there are a few #define's. Turns out you can select what type of output gets spat to the serial port. If you want to use the teapot demo, you need to comment out #define OUTPUT_READABLE_YAWPITCHROLL then uncomment #define OUTPUT_TEAPOT to make it work.

Works great, as any MPU-6050 breakout board should. Unlike other boards, this one has a built-in 3.3V low-dropout regulator, so connect VCC to 5V, not 3.3V otherwise the chip might not get enough voltage to work. A link to a schematic of the GY-521 is available on the Arduino Playground MPU-6050 page. There's pretty strong 4.7K pullups on SDA and SCL so take this into consideration if you have other pullups on the bus.

I purchased this for use with an arduino for gyro/accel data. Be aware you want a 'decoupling capacitor' of 0.1 uF between power and ground to filter the power and give a clear signal.

Good, inexpensive IMU. Shipped promptly.

There is no documentation with this device. You can find the datasheets online pretty easily, and the pins are marked as in the pictures. It would be nice for them to include some references to links to get started.. but if I can get it to work, anyone should be able to :-)

It came with two headers to solder on - one 90 degree and one straight (just use one).

The best library (maybe only) to actually use the DMU onboard is here: [...]

With that library, I was able to make use of roll and pitch to display on an LCD and light up some LEDs. I haven't used the other MPU-6050 features yet (I think there is temp or baro on this too?)... It does get noisy at high sampling (100hz) rates, but dropping it to 20-25hz completely solved that. I believe some have applied their own noise-reduction to it, but I find sampling at 25hz is plenty enough for my purposes.

I have not hooked up the device as of yet but for those interested it has a sleep mode which needs to be disabled using the interrupt line before any reading will be received from it .

BY the way it is a great price as well

I purchased this to measure telemetry on my sons pine wood derby car, it is small, light and works perfectly with any arduino board! Accepts 5V and steps it down to 3.3V on the board.

This works great with my 5V and 3.3V micro controllers without any issues. The internal MCU in the chip can be configures to do most of the work for you which means little, if any, post processing.
