    Great job :thumbs

    That is one serious computer and controller cabinet, I am really looking forward to hearing about your project details (including bargains and sources) and hope you can squeeze in a video of your rig in action, once you get a spare moment!

    Very very nice and tidy wiring!! I am in love with your cabinet and the neatness of the wiring.

    Also i like your idea having the sim on mobility scooter motor assemblies. Keep up the good work and looking forward for the finished sim. Respect !

    Awesome project, wiring looks hard. I just started collecting parts to build 3 dof motion platform and I wonder how it will look when I finish.
