Phi Calculation
Hi All--

I've been experimenting with the MPU6050. I've gotten the MPUTeapot demo to work using Jeff Rowberg's libraries. I am wondering why the formula used for phi in the B-Robot code, calculated from the MPU6050's dmp quaternion values:

return (atan2(2 * (q.y * q.z + q.w * q.x), q.w * q.w - q.x * q.x - q.y * q.y + q.z * q.z) * RAD2GRAD);

produces different results than the phi produced by the MPU6050's dmp:

mpu.dmpGetEuler(euler, &q);

Aren't these calculated straight from the quaternion values as well? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
