    Hi everyone,

    Just a short video to show the rig in action. All plastic parts seems to be good ! My 3D printed linear actuator concept is OK !!!! I tested the rig with 90 Kg user and there was no problem. Demonstration of plastic parts is OK ! Now, it's time to switch to aluminium parts :) !!!! Actuators will be more professionnal and strong ;-) See you next update !

    hi,

    I'm using Brushless DC motor. It's the same motor that you can see on my bench test page 1. Power is about 2450 Watt....

    Can you please start your own build thread and raise all questions relating to it there, rather than across multiple other member threads, which you can link to if relevant.
