I suppose he means by that, as we are not contestants, we have no right to interfere with their attempts to steal the gyroscope attachment for themselves," exclaimed Frank.
It would serve them right for the mean trick they tried to play on us by attempting to steal the gyroscope plans if we were to enter in the race at the last moment and be the Planet's dark horses.
The next instant his suspicions were confirmed by hearing the voice of the first comer snap out: "Which one of you has got themgyroscope plans?
I don't want any strangers poking around here, especially with the plans of my new gyroscope lying in plain view.
Of course, I could locate him by means of the gyroscope settings, but I'm afraid I wouldn't find him so easily visually.
After eating, he went to the control room and found that every gyroscope in the place had been thrown out of place by the attractions they had passed through.
I've got some great news--simply great, and your gyroscope can wait, dad.
But then it's no wonder for my head is so full of my new gyroscope plans.
Then he once more bent over his gyroscope model, while Tom and Mr. Damon hurried in to write the letter to the African missionary.

At various points sidings will be constructed with low walls, just high enough to receive the cars when their gyroscope equilibrium ceases.
The first question that the average man asks when he sees a gyroscope is: "Well, this thing may be all right when it is in motion, but how the deuce is it going to support itself when it is standing still?
And the gyroscope demands no overhead construction of any sort.
The first model of gyroscope car showed its ability to navigate easily the full length of a piece of crooked gas-pipe, laid in rough semblance of a track.

The gyroscope can be placed on the knob, and while the disc is revolving the outer ring can be placed at any angle, and will remain stationary.
Already an Australian inventor, called Roberts, has applied the gyroscope to the aeroplane in order to solve the problem of making it balance automatically.
The gyroscope is driven by electricity, and controlled by a pendulum which swings right or left, according to the tilt of the aeroplane.
He believes that it is mathematically demonstrable that if an elastic gyroscope be gradually tilted by some extraneous force, and if that force then ceases to act, the gyroscope as a whole will oscillate back and forth.
The gyroscope which was depended on to keep the airship on a level keel at all times, or at least to bring her back to it if she were thrown to a dangerous angle, had been set in motion as soon as the start was made.
The engine is not as badly smashed as I expected, but it will take some time to examine and test the gyroscope attachment.
No, thatgyroscope began to act wrong before we started to fall," went on the helper.
My gyroscope attachment is a total wreck, and it will cost money to build a new one.
The gyroscopestabilizer worked well, and as it was automatic, there was no need of warping the wing tips, or of using the alerons, which were provided in case of emergency.
So easy was the motion of the Abaris, and so evenly and smoothly did she glide along, due to the automatic action of the gyroscope stabilizer, that it really seemed as if they were standing still--floating between heaven and earth.
The squat gyroscopehad been planned for safety, rather than making mileage records.
Instead, they had built a sort of tower inclosure out of which the strange new gyroscope was to take its flight.
And the Wiljohn Works needed the uplift of that gyroscope success, had banked on it.
No time for any rest for himself, no time for any preliminary testing of the splendid new gyroscope plane fresh from the skids of the Wiljohn factory.
It's the position of balance that I've been working for," went on Hal, setting the little plane on his open palm and spinning the miniature gyroscope with a motion of his other hand.
There was also a yellow slip of telegraphic paper bearing him congratulations and word that his gyroscopehad won the Onheim Prize.
The gyroscope was rising, slowly, not straightly as it should.
Had he caught the vision of what the gyroscope could do in the way of taking off and landing on a mere roof top?
Continually, the principal features of both the Wind Bird monoplane and the strange rotor-bladed gyroscope were given try-outs on dog planes, as the test planes were dubbed.
This gyroscope idea is all your own, you have worked it out well in model.
But I can remedy that with the use of some of dad's gyroscope stabilizers," he told Mr. Damon.
The basis of the mechanical pilot is a gyroscope that controls pistons connected with the rudder and elevators of the plane.
It can then be used to illustrate Poinsot's theory of the motion of a body under no force, the gyroscopebeing made kinetically unsymmetrical by a setting of the screws.
A refers to rod and gyroscope about the transverse axis at the point of support, C' refers to rod about its axis of length, and C refers to the revolving fly-wheel.
Theory of Foucault's Gyroscope Experiments, by the Rev.
An experimental verification can be carried out with the gyroscope in fig.
For a complete list of the mathematical works on the subject of the Gyroscope and Gyrostat from the outset, Professor Cayley's Report to the British Association (1862) on the Progress of Dynamics should be consulted.
To demonstrate the rotation of the earth by the constancy in direction of the axis of a gyroscope is a suggestion that has often been made; by E.
Bennie rotated the map under the gyroscope until the fine black line on the dial again lay across their destination.
As it emerges from the tube the engines are set going automatically and likewise the gyroscope which steers it, after which it continues to proceed in a straight line, soon seeking and maintaining the desired depth.
Another feature is the gyroscope compass, to which a passing reference has already been made.
I took my hands off, and the gyroscope leisurely and nonchalantly went back to its original position.
I can't say I know much about either the gyroscope or the aeroplane, but from what I hear the fellows at the office say it would seem to me that the gyroscope is a pretty good thing to keep off an aeroplane, not to put on it.
You see, the gyroscope is really a flywheel mounted on gimbals and can turn on any of its angles so that it can assume any angle in space.
Could you fly in this machine without the gyroscope at all?
Brennan's resource, therefore, was to treat his gyroscope as a top.
Of all machines in the world, the gyroscope is the simplest, for, in its essential form, it is no more than a wheel revolving.
It is a gyroscope revolving in a perpendicular plane, a steel wheel weighing three quarters of a ton and spinning at the rate of three thousand revolutions to the minute.
It is seen in the ordinary spinning top, which stands erect in its capacity of a gyroscope revolving horizontally.
The gyroscope governed their direction as well as their equilibrium.
He wanted to make a gigantic gyroscope weighing several tons, to be run by an electric motor and put on a sailing ship.
He wanted this gyroscope to keep a platform perfectly horizontal, no matter how rough the sea was.
He showed me a gyroscope he had got up which made the incredible number of 4000 revolutions in a second.
It is this: in order that the gyroscope may exercise its fundamental property of holding its axis fixed, it must have that axis so adjusted that it is free to oscillate or wabble.
But whatever the future of the gyroscope as applied to pleasure-craft, there can be little doubt about its utility as applied to vessels of war.
It is merely a top or gyroscope in gimbal frames, such as I have already referred to.
It was estimated by Professor Lambert that a gyroscope of sufficient size to render even a Channel steamer stable would represent energy equal to fifty thousand foot-pounds--making it comparable, therefore, to an enormous projectile.
Should such a gyroscope in action break loose from its trunnions, it would go through the ship with all the devastating effect of a monster cannon ball.
Moreover, the two linked gyroscopes keep their planes of revolution parallel to the rail, as is essential to their proper action, and as a single gyroscope would not do.
Reverting to the diagram, the gyroscope or top proper is at the centre, revolving on the axis O A.
I was in hopes you could give me a little time to help me on my gyroscope invention," went on the aged man.
The above list will hopefully give you a few useful examples demonstrating the appropriate usage of "gyroscope" in a variety of sentences. We hope that you will now be able to make sentences using this word. Other words: counterweight; gyroscope; rotator; stabilizer
