Think about it. If it's way out of balance, it really defeats the purpose. Junk.
Another problem that occurred within the first few uses was that the rotating stand (pictured left in the preview) became loose and the entire assembly started sagging slightly. The cause of this was a loose screw that had partially come out due to the vibration of the gyroscope.
If you're looking make a demonstration using gyroscopes, stick with one of those cheap toy versions or find something of higher quality. The "precision" gyroscope is not precise at all, making it a waste of money.
