    Hello Xsimer......

    After 2 years of 2 DOF, I decided to upgrade my Sim to 3 DOF inspired by many of you. Just got most of my parts and components such as: gaming chair, Uno, MM, Wiper Motors, 10k Pot, HTC ViVe......
    Here is my idea of build...I designed these axis from CATIA...possible 4th dof for yaw in the future.

    It will be Chain driven Axis With Pot attached to gear on Wiper motor.

    Hello all,

    Run into little problem with Motor driver (MotoMaster). I bought these on Amazon, when I received them, The onboard chips looks disbonded. I have heard story about these boards. I now thinking to go with sabertooth 2x12 driver which I already owned one from my previous sim.
    Can someone direct my to the proper schematic (wiring) for Arduino Uno with 2 (sabertooth 2x12v).

    Thanks
    Cyberxu
