    I was wondering if it is possible to have a 6dof freedom motion platform like the one in the link below with something like a G seat?



    I think this would be the ultimate setup.

    Very nice! Super nice build. I think am going to be falling down the rabbit hole pretty soon. The only thing holding me back is the costs.

    That's the problem with this hobby; Once you start, you keep finding more and more things you could add to get to the next stage of realism. It's easy to keep finding things to add onto your wish list!
