Arduino and the joys of electrical engineering

I have purposely stayed away from my kid's Arduino kit in order to let it be “their” toy. But the other day I was forced to give in when I found my daughter controlling a servo motor with the Arduino. Searching the web I see that I can order a 2d gyroscope and 3d accelerator sensor board for about 40$ that would be easy to interface with the Arduino. Now I am dreaming of using this sensor and the Arduino as a fly by wire layer between a remote control receiver and servos, to control a car or airplane

(Note: I lost this post and the last one. So if they appear twice it is because both I and blogger has brought them back)
