Four drawings clarifying the initial math described in the previous post. In the first three drawings, the gimbal axis is shown complete with its undesirable CG imbalance. The 2D CG is in the same location in these three drawings, only the vector of acceleration is changed.

The fourth drawing shows the corrected CG is now coincident with the axis pivot. The axis becomes immune to translational accelerations of any sort. The attached video demonstrates the forth condition
