    My Motion Simulator:
    2DOF, DC motor

    Recently I started to design very simple 2 DOF simulator mainly for flight sims. My setup:

    Motors: Wiper motors 24V from truck - ground isolated
    80042 80043

    H- Bridges: IBT-2 JZK BTS7960B 43A High

    Pots: 534-1-1 103 10K precision multi-turn potentiometer 10K
    Controller: Arduino UNO R3
    24V cheap PSU
    Very comfortable Audi A4 seat :)

    I have already started to weld a frame, very simple design based on universal joint also from Audi A4.

    First problem I have encounter was multi-turn potentiometer, in order to achieve good position tolerance within 0-170 degrees i had to make a wiring adjustment, shown on below simple scheme. I didnt want to make any mechanical speed reductors (gears etc):
    In theory I will be able to have voltage change during 1st turn from 0 to 2.5V. Of course resolution will be reduced significantly but i hope it will be enough. To be tested soon. Was wondering if it would be better to just purchase 1 turn pot, but anyway I want to test this.

    Last but not least my test bench:

    I'm currently at testing stage, however a few things still to be done:
    -welds grinding
    -paint job
    -leveling stands
    -electronic compartment
    -final tuning
