i am trying to use the imu_rviz_plugin by forwarding an IMU message that contains the orientation vector in quaternions without anything else (so no accel, gyr and covariance matrices).

The visualization works but, the rotation arround the certain axes happens approximately 12 times faster than it should be (3 rotations in rviz when rotating the IMU with angle of 90 degs.)

Does anyone have an idea what could be the problem?

Thanks in advance!

This is weird, I have been using this plug-in and have never seen such problem. Are you sure the message sent from your node is correct? If possible, create a topic publishing the raw angle reading from the IMU to verify the reading from IMU.
