This is a great topic and I look forward to much more discussion... For now, here is Robert Parrott's email and image attachment:
It seems that Terrence Lee and I have been thinking along the same lines, so I put together a drawing (attached) as it's easier to picture than describe.
I intend to purchase a few gyros to try a simple proof of principle build, and if that looks promising I'll see if I can get a local engineering shop to make the gravity version.
I hope that the sketch helps to stimulate debate if nothing else. It's not a Bessler method but I think we always suspected there would be more than one way to get the same result.
: 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?
