gyro differences between Ricky and AR-540

Just curious about gyro differencs, specs etc. and has anyone thought of putting an electric or mechanical gyro in the center of the bike like a helicopter?

Cheers, Andrew

An electric gyro won't efect the the stability of any bike, just the steering,.. but a mechanical gyro in the center of the bike might though...

I seem to remember when playing with the evil kenivel (sp?)toy bike (a billion years ago), there was a heavy flywheel that spun when you wound up some gears that were attached to the flywheel and this powered the rear wheel. Is that right? That flywheel I thought sat in the middle of the bike????? and gave it it's gyrscopic effect.
