 English term or phrase: outer gimbal In figure 56 a force is applied to the >outer gimbal< tending to rotate the rotor about the inner gimbal axis B-B. However, by the law of gyroscope precession (sometimes called Sperry's Rule of Precession) the rotor must precesses about an axis which is at right-angles to both the spin axis of the rotor and the axis about which the torque is acting. The rotor must, therefore, precess about the >outer gimbal< axis C-C. - Fig 56 http://goo.gl/vM5Mo6

 suport cardanic exterior Explanation:"A gimbal is a pivoted support that allows the rotation of an object about a single axis. A set of three gimbals, one mounted on the other with orthogonal pivot axes, may be used to allow an object mounted on the innermost gimbal to remain independent of the rotation of its support (cf. vertical in the first animation).
