As known,gyroscpes always aim in one direction.If one would trade the weight,bulk,slowness of aircraft wings,and in turn use the outer rings of the gyro as the fulcrum for turning the craft as well as stability, would it not be true "instantaneous inflight turning" be accomplished? One would need only to compute the limits of the fulcrum by not exeeding the stabalizing force created by the rpm of the gyro.The outer rings of the gyro would be physically connected to the hull of the craft via hydraulic arms.I see this as the future of flight,logical,simple,and well within todays technological state.Would this be possible??Whre would one get grants for such a project?
