Recently, I have been playing around with a gyroscope and accelerometer in the hopes of building a quadcopter. I have plotted some of the data the two sensors and I am noticing that the pitch from the accelerator lags significantly behind the gyroscopic pitch.
From some research, I understand that these two are not going to equivalent values due to the mechanisms of measurement, however is it common to have such large discrepancies (i.e a difference of 20 degrees or higher) between the two sensors or is this an issue with my conversion?
I have listed the graph and source code here. Any help would be appreciated!
