That's what I like the most about this forum: I learn a new word everyday ;-)
BTW, is it much different from gibberish?
Same same !

They have gyros (the inertial unit requires them).

What, actual spinning-wheel-in-gymbals gyros? Or some modern electronic gizmo that gives similar results?

Now that eletronic ones (tiny, reliable, inexpensive) are accurate enough, I believe almost nobody uses mechanical gyros anymore. Even steadycams now are electronic/powered.

Am I wrong?

No, I wasn't gainsaying you. Just trying to educate myself. The blurb said "3 gyros and 3 accelerometers" and I thought those are basically the same thing and the marketing bods have just tried to make it sound extra super. But a bit of googling tells me that while they are similar devices, accelerometers measure linear changes in motion and electronic gyroscopes measure angular change. Every day is a school day.
