    Hi guys!
    I work on implementing a platform which will obtain data from quadrotor for system identification. I think about using 6 dof imu(accelerometer+gyroscope) with kalman filter to estimate quadrotor’s state. However, Accelerometer doesn't give yaw information. so, Do you think that only accelerometer and gyroscope are enough for estimating quadrotor state? or Do i need extras such as magnetometer(9dof imu)?
