Subject: Flexure type for leg joints 

I had been thinking of using this flexure for the bearings for the leg joints, but I finally realized that it was not the right type of bearing.  The joints for the Stewart platform need to be free to both yaw and pitch, but this bearing actually constrains yaw (while leaving out-of-plane translation free).
