    Thanks for the info!

    So I can see at the front, you have a castor (without wheel) to provide the ability to pivot, and behind the uni you have the motor, but what supports the frame at the rear of the rig?

    Have you installed some sort of wheel/bearing/ball to keep the platform up?

    Yes, I have mounted small ball bearing rollers in the middle and rear. Unfortunately, the quality is too low. These make noise. I would use slightly bigger rolls.

    A little update from my buttonbox: instead of the PCB from a WingMan Formula Force GP, I now use a BBI-32 from Leo Bodnar. however, I only need 16 of the 32 inputs. I can not bring more into the small box and I do not need it, since I still use the iPad with ccp.
