Could multiple gyroscopes be used to change direction in a flying vehicle? Im a physics noob and don't really know what else to add...
If having one gyroscope allows you to change your direction in 90° by adding an outside force to the gyro, would it not be possible to change into any direction by altering the orientation of multiple gyroscopes?
I see many benefits of using gyroscopes to change direction vs our traditional methods which is either adding drag to one side of the vehicle or adding thrust to the other side of the vehicle. Additionally it could add stability to the plane and remove complex mechanisms found outside the fuselage. Maybe even remove the gyroscopic prop effect?
P.S. I have tried to research my question but the results are either too complex to follow or a simple introduction to gyros.
