Shouldn't the balancing come automatically?
As long as you do not use the --disable-gyroscopic configure flag,
gyroscopic forces should keep it upright. Just make sure you have
reasonable mass in the wheels.
Leaning in the corners would be much easier if there was a
torus primitive that you could use for colliding with ground.
Is anyone up for implementing torus-vs-plane ?
