    Research into Gyros

    November 20, 2013 by BlakeA

    Tests done in x,y,z,  with the use of keyboard ONLY.

    Gyroscopes seem to move a craft toward a maximum rotational speed, upon hitting that speed they no longer accelerate.

    Mass Thrusters Gyros Time for 10 rev. Time for 1 rev.
    8885 kg 6 1 23 sec 3.7 sec
    8875 kg 6 2 22 sec 2.9 sec
    8864 kg 6 3 22 sec 2.6 sec

    Note how the time for all three ships to complete 10 revolutions is about the same.  It is quite possible there is a game limit on rotational speed between 2.3 seconds per revolution and 140 rpm.  The next test is if radius of the ship has any effect whatsoever on the the craft's ability to rotate.  In order to test this a single "T" shaped ship was used and the dimentions of the ship were recorded.
