Just look at the complexity (and size/weight) of this mechanical gyro! Now that functionality (times nine--three gyros, three accelerometers, three magnetometers) is performed by a $15 chip smaller than your fingernail.
Don, it's not *that* type of gyro.
Right, but the question (I think) was whether there are applications where MEMs gyros won't perform as well as mechanical gyros. And, why.
Thanks for your response Don. I read somewhere that ISS still use mechanical gyro (maybe because of old conception, I don't know what about recent satellite). So I means imagine saved weight on modern air/spacecraft, just amazing.
Maxime, many professionals still use them to stabilize their video and still cameras on all sorts of moving platforms. Here's an example:
