The tiny pcb for my robot project has just arrived! Only a few components remaining to arrive so that i can start soldering the whole board.

It seems to fit perfectly in place!

That is a lot of capacitors! I see you don't want any noise. Shouldn't the accelerometer be in the center of the board? Otherwise the math is getting a bit more complex...

Yeah it can get pretty noisy with the 12 servos inrush current.. The accelerometer is very close to the centre (only 7mm away), so i'm assuming that the centripetal acceleration would be the same. If I notice drifting I can move it to the top layer instead of the rgb led in the next pcb pototype.
