[time-nuts] OT - DC-10 gyros

I neglected to mention that. The DC resistance of the motor windings is 
roughly 200 ohms. I estimate the power draw is < 2 watts. Haven't 
measured the inductance.

I probably could just use some FETs and build a simple class-B amp. The 
sine wave doesn't have to be absolutely pure. Frequency stability (at 
least, in a real application) is more important, since the gyro response 
depends upon the rotational speed of the wheel. Not that I'm going to 
actually use it for anything other than just getting it working. :)

They said 'Windows or better'
so I used Linux.
