    Hello guy,

    This is my current seatmover, work in progress.
    It's a 2 dof with 120W DC motors and a sabertooth.
    The wheel is a G25.
    For the moment, i play on a old 720p TV, but a would like an oculus.

    I look forward to seeing your rig in action when you get the time for a video.

    Nice to see your rig in action :thumbs

    As your refine your motion profile you may want to add some more heave and surge, with the latter also configured for gear shift effects: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/snappy-gear-change-motion.121/

    There is flex of the motors, particularly the one on the right. You will get even better motion if you fix that so there is none.

    I am looking forward to your next update.

    Thanks for your advices.
    For the gear effect, i will configured it when i will receive de diy version 2 of simtools. I have send a mail but i still wait for it.
    For the flex of the motors, i initially posed a second square, but the cam is to long and stops in.

    New video where we see the comparison of the support motor with 1 or 2 brackets. The difference in rigidity is blatant.


    Original G25 support directly put in seat support :

    Origin alim fan replace by a bigger Noctua who make less noise

    Complete overhaul of my simulator. Based on Simracing Rig S-Dream simulator based on Motedis profiles. I took the opportunity to change G25 to TS-XW racer.
