    Hello. I'm from Manila Philippines and I'm just newbie here. I'm planning to build 3DOF for my flight simulator. Can anybody here guide me on where to find the exact motor that fit with my plan? Thank you and looking forward to a positive response.

    You will need to finalise your design choice first and a little bit of research is time well spent, so check out the FAQs: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/

    In particular the Design section: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/design-considerations-resources.24/category

    And use SimCalc to help you get your head around the trade off in Design Vs physics: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...e-linear-speed-and-forces-of-your-design.270/

    SimCalc covers 2DOF, like the design in the bottom of the picture you posted.

    You can get into more specifics in the Build section: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/building-resources.12/category

    You can also go through existing member projects for specific ideas or inspiration: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/forums/diy-motion-simulator-projects.22/

    Or search for specific types of projects using the Google Custom Search function on the Recent page: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/find-new/posts?recent=1

    If something sounds odd then look it up in the glossary: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/glossary-of-acronyms-and-names.66/

    Good luck with your project.

    @noorbeast Thanks for your quick response. The links you shared is very helpful. Anyways, my plan is for Flight Simulator and carry the load up to 80-90kls. I did a lot of searching but most of it didn't specify what exactly the specification of motors and the maximum payload. Do you have any links that similar to my plan? (Thank you)

    Hello guys,

    Here's some progress with my project. Just arrived my lever arm together with flatform for the engine. I also bought used cross joint and ball joint. I just doubt my potentiometer 10k with 180 degrees will fit my project? any suggestions?
