There are some "higher grade" MEMS that might be suitable *at constant temperature*, with a bias instability of 1-5 deg/hr ( == 0.0014 - 0.000277 deg/s). White noise dominates,...

accelerometer to roll and pitch
The second part is what sort of errors to expect. I will talk in mg (milli-g's or one one-thousandth the acceleration due to gravity = 9.81 / 1000). The dominant errors for low-...
