I'm actually planning on using an RC controlled CMG on a small two wheeled or (more likely) a two legged platform soon, just to have a project to
work on. I plan on dedicating two channels to it, but I suppose you could get by with only one channel if the gyro power supply is manually switch
The hang up I see is the weight of the drive motor, weight of the control motor, weight of the gyro wheel, and required mounting structure. Mine gyro
weight alone will be about 2 lbs (not exactly rc aircraft friendly). And that is not to mention an extra battery.
Really cool idea, though, I would like to see someone give it a go.
