@molan Perfect, thanks! Make it an answer and it gets my vote.

comment Feasible to find the PDF of a chain of products of derived random variables?
@Sasha I suspected as much, and as a matter of fact my alternative idea was just such a Monte Carlo approach (and I am glad to hear someone who knows what they're talking about propose it!). I hadn't looked into the details of estimating the PDF from the data -- before reading your comment, I wasn't familiar with density estimation at all. I can certainly sample appropriate data in a closed-loop simulation. Would it be possible to parameterize the estimated PDF based on parameters like $\alpha_h$ and $\alpha_v$ so that it isn't necessary to simulate each new case?
