Miniature Piezo Gyro


Click for larger image
GWS PG-03 Piezo Gyro. This tiny gyro is about 1" square and weighs less than 0.3 oz!

A Piezo Gyro senses rotation about a single axis and outputs a servo signal intended to be used to counter that rotation. Piezo gyros are typically used in R/C aircraft to stabilize flight by automatically countering unwanted motion, e.g. from wind. They can also be used in robotics for balancing, or to detect rotation, or to drive a "tracking" servo which continues to point to a fixed object even if your robot turns.

Extremely small and light, this gyro can be used on almost any sized robot. Comes with universal 3-pin connectors, for compatibility with all brands of servos and radio gear.
