1. A flywheel gyroscope assembly, comprising:
a perimeter section having an inside face and an outside face, comprising:
a plurality of perimeter spokes extending from the outside face shaped to provide directed thrust when rotated; and
a plurality of magnets positioned along the inside face;
a hub section having an inside face and an outside face, comprising:
a plurality of magnets positioned along the outside face of the hub section; and
a plurality of hub spokes extending inward from the inside face of the hub section and configured to produce thrust when rotated; and
a stator having a plurality of exterior field coils along its outside diameter and plurality of interior field coils along its inside diameter, wherein the plurality of exterior field coils are positioned to act upon the magnets of the perimeter section and the plurality of interior field coils are positioned to act upon the magnets of the hub section to create counter rotation of the plurality of perimeter spokes and the plurality of hub spokes.
