    After both being impressed by, and raising an eyebrow over SimCalc I wrote something kind of similar. It's pretty rough in some regards but I've done some testing comparing it to CAD models and it seems to be giving accurate results but I fully encourage others with access to CAD software to do the same (roughly speaking, if you adjust your CTC angles by 1 degree and compare that to how much the main platform moves, that's the same ratio as the torque of the motor to the pitch or roll torque, and similar stores for speeds)

    I intentionally left out a lot of stuff like linear velocities and max values because they all seemed redundant or potentially misleading. Also, more outputs means more development time and room for mistakes :) If people have ideas, recommendations, or questions, please don't hesitate.
