: Working on a new wheel using gyro's. Lots of wierd stuff they do. On a wheel with two opposing axis at (9:00 and 3:00), put a gyro on the right side of the left axis and one on the right side of the right axis. They will maintain their orientation thoughout the spin of the wheel. Just need a drive from the axis to keep the gyros going. They require very little energy to keep their revs up. Need a right angle power transfer with a somewhat high gearing(sort of like the rear end and transmission in a car ,only in miniature). Any ideas for the gyro drive other than making one from scratch?
Neat idea, I thought of using a gyros precession as a drive,
but don't gyros twist because of the earths spin? (not real PM)
