Hi there. I’ve noticed that the accelerometer registration of motion is extremely hit-or-miss: If I move it in any direction, it only detects the motion maybe 20% of the time. It’s collision detection is always spot on, though: if I tap the PropBoard, the motion always registers.
I’m wondering if this might have to do with the accelerometer’s power requirements. I’m currently using 4 AAA batteries as a power source; perhaps this doesn’t provide enough power to continually power the accelerometer, resulting in poor performance? Or perhaps my accelerometer is defective? Help would be much appreciated.
I can upload a video if that would help.
