BryceGTX is on a distinguished road
Now we remove the mast inertia. We notice the natural frequency increases and so does the damping. The damping causes the rolling to die out after only about 3 cycles. And because the frequency is higher, the damping cause the angular displacement to be limited to 3 degrees.
