Subject: What would lift a set of gyroscopes?
Question: Can a gyroscope or gyroscopes lift another gyroscope?

A washing machine hops when off balance. Can, what's makes the washing machine hop like that, maybe the weight spinning is always up in a v swilling motion could that lift a set of gyroscopes?

If a set of spinning gyroscopes that has a propeller in the center to give it lift would the weight at the height achieved be greater then the energy use to spin the gyroscopes and propeller?

During the development of my Gamma Drive, I used to curse at the washing machine in the next room because it was noisy AND it seemed to be bouncing higher than my experimental device!!!

Do experiments and you can find the answers to your questions.
