    Hi, I'm Ivo Herrera
    I'm from Argentina, province of Cordoba.
    I preface my simulator which a couple of years ago I have and choose to put movement, as some friends insisted me.
    The Simu has LogitechG27 Volante with a 330mm hoop, structure type Zalem, and now I add the movement.
    Two windscreen wiper motors from VW Gol
    the Arduino Uno R3 electronics and two Moto Monster Shield, I'm going to use one for each Mtor not to demand them as much and last a while longer.

    Attached some photos of the advances

    Hello friend, have you tried to run SMC3utils in administrator mode ?, on the other hand check the lateral clearance, you should correct that part, observe how the structure is balanced for the sides

    good step to tell you. one of the MMS loved an exit so I did not have any mention to the engines. I am working with a single MMS using it for the two engines. I share an image and video of the elec

    Hi mate, if the SMC3Utils is running perfect.
    It was one of the MMS that was failed, it was loved in a short time because the test gave me very well when I control it. If the truth that I stay narrow with the width of the structure.
