ECN 00000002 New balanced gyro test cubes

Cube Orange+ BG

the cubeOrange+ will be continuing to change sensors as we prove out the new ICM45686 Balanced Gyro
This notice is primarily for those that deviate from Ardupilot or PX4 standard code for their builds.
a batch of CubeOrange+BG will be made and sold that have all the changes plus an additional old IMU to enable testing and proving out of the system
so that is 4 IMU’s
Both Ardupilot and PX4 will be able to run this with an upcomming firmware.
this will allow a normal config, and a new config
in the “Normal” however, you will notice no internal mag, the new internal mag will be supported in Ardupilot 4.3.4
a further change will come when/if the ICM45686 proves itself for its ecellent new features, when we move to a tripple ICM45686 solution

again, anyone running normal ardupilot or PX4 will not need to do anything to deal with these changes.
