    The difference between IMU,Mag,Alt sensors in aero compute board and the sensors in flight controller

    Jason_Park

      Hello, I am searching for some information about the sensors(IMU,Mag,Alt) before buying RTF kit.

      What I'd like to know is the difference between sensors(IMU,Mag,Alt) in compute board and the sensors in flight controller.

      (I found out that the board has BMI160, BMI150 and MS5611 and controller has MPU-6500, HMC5883L and MS5611)

       

      The thing is.. Is there a key difference of role between the sensors?

      For example, Intel Atom processor deals with RealSense, cameras, etc with information through the sensors(IMU,Mag,Alt) in compute board

      and STM32 MCU only deals with flight control commands through the sensors in flight controller..?

       

      Someone please help me out!

       

      Regards,
