I spent a lot of time considering how I could temper the erratic gyroscope readings. I thought I could wait, but the gyroscope is consistently reporting movement, and always in the clockwise direction. Reproducible data can be countered, and I will do that with the help of the accelerometers, which seem reliable. I have not looked at how other people utilize IMUs, but I am enjoying working this from the ground up, so I understand how it will operate.
Pseudo code for accelerometer-tempered gyroscope reading

My plan for the code is to ignore the gyroscope reading while the accelerometers say the unit is stationary. Additionally, when everything is motionless, I will record gyroscope readings so they can be used to counteract the erroneous offset.
