    Hello,
    My name is Patrik and I'm from Czech Republic, I'm a former electrician and I'm also working in online marketing. I love everything around PC, own RC models and I have no experience with simulator programming.

    I bought the T150 and I totally loved racing simulators. Since I like to play, I decided to make my own 2DOF motion simulator. Perhaps I would like to make 3DOF from time to time.

    I'm really glad that I came across this forum and I could be inspired even though I'm a little unclear and I'd love to help with the construction.

    Plan:
    I plan to proceed similarly to: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/from-atoz-2dof-arduino-wiper-playseat.4616/#post-45417 with the front part with steering wheel and pedals possibility to disassemble because I need to work with a PC.

    Beginning:
    I ordered Aurdion and Monster Moto Shield for Arduino and I wanted to connect it to the RC servo to test everything and learn how to work. Unfortunately, I have not come across a complete tutorial describing the 2DOF model with RC.

    1. I have no source yet, will it be with a PC source 400w?
    2. Does the RC servo have to connect with Monster Moto?
    3. Is there any help + connection?

    Questions:
    1. Will these engines fit for my 95Kg weight? http://www.vdkelektronika.eu/Stejnosmerny-DC-elektromotor-12V-200W-s-vodvodovkou-d1420.htm

    2. What source should I choose from this eshop? https://www.czech-server.com/components/sources.html
    3, Does anyone have experience in buying ebay engines and transporting them to the Czech Republic or the EU?


    Proposal to buy 2DOF material:
    2x motor 12V / 200w http://www.vdkelektronika.eu/Stejnosmerny-DC-elektromotor-12V-200W-s-prevodovkou-d1420.htm
    2x Aurdionu
    2x Monster Moto
    1x Server source (I have not selected)
    1x DX racer chair
    Steel structure

    I see work for about 2 months (if everything is light), because this month I want to invest some money and buy the rest for the next month and build the steel construction. I will add the design this week and I would like to build a 2DOF simulator RC model.

    PS: I'm sorry for my English, it helps me with long Google Translator texts, thank you for your understanding.

    For the RC model follow the instruction and use the code from here, the only change for SimTools 2 is that the Axis Interface should be like this R<Axis1a>~L<Axis2a>~F<Axis3a>~ : https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/2dof-simulator-servo-model.6851/#post-77270

    While I can't read it all the motors you linked look to be the same as others from various suppliers around the world.

    I can't open the czech-server.com link.

    Here is an alternate Canadian supplier many have used here and who can ship internationally:

    25:1 - https://www.ebay.com/itm/GEAR-MOTOR...384?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item51bd392f00

    50:1 - https://www.ebay.com/itm/GEAR-MOTOR...L-FEED-SIMULATOR-75-80RPM-50-1-/371596157992?

    Sorry, the link to the source is as follows: https://www.czech-server.cz Thank you for your response. I have a selected engine with a 25: 1 aspect ratio. Now I'm waiting for Arduin testing before I can buy the rest.

    Finally, Arduino module arrived for me to play. I have also arrived 12V 200W motors with worm gear. Below I'm sending a video from a RC simulator of motion, which needs to be tightened. Next week I should build a construction and order a PSU.

    I have questions:
    1. Do I need a 2x shield motor or is it sufficient for only 2DOF?
    2. How much do I need a PSU for 2x 12v 200w motor?

    Thanks for explaining
