    Good morning pilots!

    Could someone tell me if the linear motors of hospital beds

    Could they be used for the simulator?

    Some of these motors look good but are too slow.

    It may be possible to modify the gearing to speed them up if the design allows it

    There are not really any shortcuts to getting a fast powerful linear actuator, gear motors are fast powerful, but do not have the same level of distance that you need for a flight sim

    thanks friend ! I'm going to take one apart to see if I can fit a faster motor to it.
