This has been suggested before, but that was months if not years ago, so here it is again

2x2x2, and more powerful than eight Venture gyros combined, but at the cost of higher weight so too many to one side and the gyro's weight counteracts the stabalising force

This would be good for large builds that use Hawkeye as the primary corp and not disrupting that look. Also, they're a military corp so they should be making techs such as helicopters and aircraft that need gyros to stay balanced

more like 1x2x1, needs to fit on the slimness of a plane and easy to balance a small helicopter with
I support this size. it have to be 1 at least on one side, so it can be used on small tech and odd number of blocks. Same like we need at elast one big rotation anchor in odd size.

I want gyro stabilizers available for all corporations. Not sure how useful it would be in GeoCorp, but you never know...

Hawkeye Gyroscope:

A larger and more powerful version of the Venture Gyroscope; recommended dimensions being 2 wide by 2 deep by 1 tall so that the gyroscope could be centered on techs irrespective if the tech's width is an odd or even number of block-lengths.

pretty sure the kawkeye 3 by 3 rotor. whatever it is called. in the description it says it has a built in gyro. but obviously that isnt true. so just make it true and done
No, it doesn't. It's saying it doesn't generate torque, and spin the aircraft. like IRL helicopters do. That's why IRL choppers have the little rotor on the back.

2x1x1 and 3 times as powerful, but 3 times as heavy, and 5 times as expensive. And tougher.
maybe 4 times as powerful? venture is all about extreme sports and flips and stuff, whereas hawkeye is military and wants stuff that's probably twice as powerful (going by block size) because they want the aircrafts to NOT flip.

so i say 1x2x1, 4 times as powerful, 3 times-4 times heavier, 5-6 times as expensive

Hello? With the r&d pack we have 2 huge gyros.

One is 1x2x2 and one is 2x2x2.
