I started working on a calibration routine that would trigger at startup and a second after pressing a button. My technique was to a bunch of the resting Z Gyro values to a list and then use a built-in function to find the average of that list. Unfortunately, averaging always caused a fatal error, but if I used sum and divided by the total items, it seemed to work. I have my doubts that it functioned because I tried to display the first nine entries of the list, and it only showed the first. Keeping all the values in a list is going to cause problems, so I will try adding ten readings together and dividing them at the end. It loses the advantage of keeping a record, but it is more straightforward.
