Hi!

I'm trying to communicate with the MPU6050 in MATLAB, where if I send a request 'A' via serial bluetooth to the Arduino UNO, I get the current reading of the euler angle. This kind of works for me at the moment, but if I request the serial print out of the angle too many times in a row, or to frequently, I get some kind of FIFO overflow, so that I have to reset the arduino and re-initialize the Bluetooth connection before I can use it again. It usually takes less than 5-10 requests before the MPU hangs and does not respond anymore. I'll post my arduino code below. I reqest the angle by sending the character 'A' via bluetooth to the arduino. In the same way, I use a motor shield so that I can control two DC-motors that are connected to the arduino as well, by sending various commands via bluetooth.
