Sensor Layout.

Hi,I'm working with mbed and MPU6050 to find the position of a robotic arm with 6degrees of freedom.I need to place the sensor at each joint but i don't want any heavier weight on it.that may cause enough error.I've been trying to use jumpers to extend my MPU6050 out of a breadboard living only mbed on it but my connection has been failing while it works better on the bread board. I soldered the jumper to the sensor.please is there anyway i can place the sensor,any idea?

Ceri, ebay is your friend.. Just a 1 min search: http://www.ebay.com/itm/IMU-6DOF-MPU-6050-Invensense-breakout-board-/271464147965?pt=FR_YO_MaisonJardin_Bricolage_ElectroniqueComposants&hash=item3f34862bfd

It's even in Europe. I guess you can probably find something even cheaper from China.
