Asked by: gamingmaster
Subject: Self balancing gyro bike
Question: Hello everyone. I tried to make a self balancing bike based on gyroscopic effect.
First, I designed the frame for it with wheels(two). The total length of the setup is 1250 mm.
I made a gaint revolving disk driven by a motor. A mass of 8 KG is made to revolve at 2000 RPM which is mounted on a gimbal that allows the frame of the disc to move front and back to provide self balancing.

When I run the setup and expected it to stand without support the bike just fell to its side. I cant understand why this has happened. I would be happy if anyone could help. I can provide u with pics of my setup if u are interested.
