Hi all, searching the site didn't give me much on gyros aside from the MEMS gyro sensors. I'm interested in good old fashioned spinning chunks of metal :-). I guess these could also be called flywheels, though ultimately I'm aiming for a gimbal mount active gyro. Anyone work much with them in robotics projects?
I'm designing a robot and trying to get a handle how much help they can provide to balance something tall and heavy... e.g. if I use a 20lb gyro at X RPM how much torque could it provide, etc.
