Default Vector thrust need some help

Hello everyone so I am thinking of putting vector thrust on my top RC Odyssey I will have plenty of engine. My outside pipe dimension is approximately 4 in inside pipe dimension is 3/34inch.
So first who would make a vector thrust nozzle that would work for this pipe. Here is a link to the vector thrust nozzle that I was thinking of getting the dimensions look to be right to me but being ignorant to the subject I'd like to hear from people who have done the vector thrust.

Second I'm concerned about the gyroscopic effects on the turbines bearings. Back when helicopters first came out as turbines you could not do 3D with helicopters because the gyroscopic effects were wiping out the bearings in the turbine I really don't want to shorten the life of my bearings in the turbine.

And third I know it needs to be tied into the gyro on a mix about how much movement would be necessary on the vector thrust nozzle.
Thanks Joe

Contact Grumania in Germany…pipe sorted
Powerfull fast servos. Servo arms long enough to give you full vector movement with no more than 45 degrees servo travel either side of centre.
Gyro depends on your preferred flavour, but generally 100% gain, the voodoo inside will control how much the gyro is moving the vector
