tilt sensor, or motor load indicator...

I wonder where comes from the energy torque you feel in your hand when
tilting the spindle... I suppose it is exactly the angular inertia
trying to compensate the 3 vectors changing, so there are some energy
The best way to read the current motor is just converting it to voltage,
filter it in someway to allow you to get a stable reading and feel that
tilt energy transfer.
But, I believe the actual missile guidance systems doesn't use anymore
the perfect gyros with "swiss precision" bearings and sensors... just
plain accelerometer chips, cheap, easy to read and very small.
Take a look at Analog Devices ADXL50, it measures ±5 g range, outpus
analog signal from 0.25 to 4.75V with a power supply from +5 to +24V. A
couple of them should solve your problem.
