    Negative Z Accelerometer Values

    JorgeG

      Hello, I've been looking at the raw IMU values of the intel Aero through the Mavlink inspector on QGroundControl. While the X and Y values seem to be fine, the Z axis accelerometer values seem to be off. When the drone is at rest the values should be at 0 unless if I'm mistaken, but when the Aero is completely stationary the Z accelerometer values are around -999. Is there something wrong with the way I calibrated the Aero or is this how the accelerometer is supposed to actually function. It seems to me I can only get the values close to 0 for the Z axis when I pick up the drone and turn it to its side while I'm still holding it in the air. Any help is appreciated, thank you.
