    I'm an NXT-user and I purchased a HT Gyro-sensor.
    It took me some time, but I got it to work to the point that I got sensible output. And when using the gyrosensor in a moc-up the angles that are calculated are quite accurate.
    However :
    I built a robot (kinda like the basic tripod). The gyro-sensor is incorporated in this vehicle. When it turns I count the number of rotations of the motors to estimate wether or not a 90 degree has been made. Often it's a little over the 90 degree turn.
    The angle, calculated using input from the gyro-sensor, is 80 degrees (of under!).

    Is there any way around this? I read about lower gyro-reading when Motors are also engaged....
