Sure, if they were all just static spinning gyros, but like the hubble telescope, perhaps the gyros can be stopped, started, and turned.

I'm just guessing here, but can easily imagine that they can be manipulated to cause the machine to lean, or stand up. Instead of counter steering, it'd be counter gyroing.
