Nice work on momentum based reaction wheel control. Not really what we’re after for large robotic control but still cool for demonstration. Wonder what kind of price tag they’d put on this. We really need more manufacturers who can create such devices or gyroscopic dependent systems will remain entirely custom and out of reach of experimentation for anyone without access to machinist.
