the booz2 imu produces its analog 5V for the gyros with a LDO
(lp2992), so you need to supply it with a tension greater than 5V +
the LDO dropout (450mv)
The booz controller board produces a 6.5V with a linear reg directly
from the battery voltage to avoid any switching supply noise in the
analog voltage.
 The lp2992 is rated for 16V, so if your capacitors have the same
rating, you could try to run the IMU directly from your 3 cells lipo
pack. I haven't tried it
Maybe the best way is still to connect the IMU to the booz controller
board instead of to a tiny
