Gyroscopes as Evidence for a Spherical and Rotating Earth

you guys are awesome, the last thing to put the conspiracy for me to bed is the Coriolis effect, and how the gyros in planes show no curvature as they do not alter, as they stay flat through out the entire flight or is this all about a sense of scale again ?

You'd need to supply more detail as to how that is supposed to work, with the actual claims made, and how it was measured, and by who, and when, and the math.

I don't understand what troubles you about the coriolis force; it confirms the rotation of the earth. (please add a clarification).
Gyros in planes DO show curvature. They show apparent drift, apparent topple and transport wander. I am told that pilots learn to adjust every 10 to 15 minutes for that if they have to rely on them.

It's not about scale. It's just wrong. Flat earthers have built a completely unrealistic model of what gyroscopes and gyrocompasses do, but they present it as fact.

There are FE claims about gyroscopes not showing the rotation of the earth. They show a video of a toy gyroscope that should in theory (conservation of angular momentum) show apparent drift in the course of, say, 1/2 'n hour, but it doesn't. The trouble with these claims is that the rigidity of that gyroscope is not enough to follow the very slow rotation of the earth. In planes they use better gyroscopes (with less friction in the attachment points of the axes of rotation and a larger moment of inertia) and the relative rotation of the gyroscope environment is faster because the plane's movement adds up with the earth's.
To explain what is going wrong in those video's you can compare it with the well known experiment to show the law of inertia (conservation of momentum, Newton's 1st law) by pulling a tablecloth away from under plates and drinking glasses etc. covering a table. You have to do that very quickly and/or use a very smooth tablecloth, otherwise you'll end up with a great mess on the floor. In other words: what's on the table (almost) stays in it's place only if the friction force between cloth and plates etc. can't deliver the acceleration that you give to the tablecloth.
There is a way of getting around the friction problem all together: using ring laser gyros. In bigger modern aircrafts they have replaced the gimballed gyros. The next video explaines how it works.
