The Super Precision Gyroscope is designed and built to the highest precision. We engineered it from the ground up with solid brass and a light-weight aluminium frame. Then we chose Industrial Grade stainless-steel miniature ball bearings that allow it to run smoothly and nearly silent.
The gyroscope spools up to 12,000 revolutions per minute (rpm) using the provided electric motor and battery pack. This high rate of rotation can be sustained for up to 25 minutes or attached to the motor with included screws allowing long term experiments. The gyroscope comes with a gimbals kit allowing numerous configurations to perform scientific, educational or simply mesmerizing experiments.
I am absolutley blown away by the engineering that went into this gyroscope. It is amazing how accurately it creates gyroscopic forces. Simply a joy to play/experiment with this device. Although pricey, it is easily understood once you hold it in your hand and inspect the quality.

Q: When will this item be restocked?
Q: Do the accessories come with the $249.00 cost? What type of lubrication is recommended? Can the gyroscope withstand being dropped from two feet? Any discounts for schools?
Q: Is it powered by electricity?
Q: Why are accessories and the gyroscope wrapped in plastic in their drawers, while the motor and activator are not wrapped in plastic in their drawer?
Q: Why do the instructions say that the maximum time for spinning off-motor is 7 minutes, while advertisements claim the unit can spin for up to 20 minutes??
Q: Oops, that's 25 minutes maximum time--7 minutes max per instructions--so why the discrepancy??
Q: Does this gyroscope have the improved bearing?
Q: Hello, does this gyroscope come with the full set of gimbals? Thanks!
