    Congratulations to this successful next step, @ART FLY.

    It seems that the motor is oscillating quite a bit, so that some more PID tuning may be needed.

    Now that I finished Motor tuning in smc3utils I am looking forward to start testing in SimTools.

    As I put so much time and spirit into this project I took some time checking what could be done to make DER GERÄT reliable and safe in the long run.

    As I already felt the destruktive power my motors cold have when something goes wrong - I checked all parts today. I found the 21mm carpenter plate was wearing out an would later break if I do not put some bigger armory on it.

    This iron I added will not only make the hardware of DER GERÄT last for a long period - it will for sure also positively improve the performence because the stiffer material will translate in more direct movement. We'll see the next days if that really happens. I am confident :cool:

    My welding becomes better :D

    I think this time the lever will hold ... the same I said the two other times before :confused:

    Here are two videos to watch and celebrate yours, @SilentChill,
    @noorbeast, @MarkusB , @satbranigan ,@BlazinH ,@Christian Doehl ,@Gadget999 ,@cgodwin , and my success.
    DER GERÄT is working :grin and now just needs some more tuning perhaps.
    I did almost 7 hours of non stop racing in Automobilista2 in VR with a friend last night.
    Everything is still in place and the motors were just about handwarm :cheers





    My mate Marcus as CrashTestDummy. This is in HD ;)




    If you recognize anything that might be of interest for me do not hesitate to give feedback.
    Well guys'n'gals - stay safe & stay happy, merry christmas hug:

    Later & Servus,
    Yours ART FLY

    Next week is the wind sim projekt and maybe Squadrons Plugin and Manager Tuning and and and and and and ... I guess I will never get to the point - as my wife many times correctly mentioned:
    "why don't you just play and enjoy it ?!?"

    ... I think YOU understand ;)




    ... maybe WE should really much more often listen to our wives :rolleyes:
