No. The weight of any object is related to the amount of matter in the object. The spinning of the wheel of the gyroscope will change the angular momentun which is measured in refernce to a certain point. The mass of the gyroscope in its whole will remain the same. For an example of this. Take a bicycle wheel.Hold the wheel both ends of the axle. Get someone to spin the wheel. Now, keep the wheel a distance from your body and start to move the wheel in a circle around you, turing as you go. You Will feel the weight of the one side of the axle get less and of the other side getting heavier. If you obtain the correct speed you will be able to keep the wheel in the air by holding on the one side of the axle only. If you turn around slower and faster the angle of the wheel will change. The net mass remains the same.
