I learned about piezo gyros and that they'd been miniaturized along with servo motors for RC aircraft and helicopter use. Eventually, I found the Dunehaven GS-1, which is a combined gyro/servo in one package.

That is cool!
This caught my eye because I built a servo controlled webcam, I could easily replace one of the servo's with that Dunehaven GS-1
Gyroscopic stabilized servo's... geez technology marches on!
