Well, i had assumed their moments would be opposite and cancel out,, but my experience with gyroscopes is all from those little childhood toys. I still remember marvelling how strongly the gyro wants to turn perpendicular to whichever way you're trying to push it. That's why it'll hang horizontal and rotate about its pedestal, apparently defying gravity.
Wouldn't the reverse rotation of the second prop reverse its effect ?- say in a left turn, the clockwise prop pushing the nose up and the counterclockwise one pushing the nose down, add to zero torque from the gyroscope effect?
Cogito ergo doleo.
