    Hello from Rhodes island in Greece. Glad to join you all!
    I'm new to motion sim but have experience in developing 3d games in Unity.
    Planning to develop a simple 2 dof sim soon. Any help will be most welcome.

    Hey, all! Enjoyed simulator for a short of time back then and now I got more free time, thought I would enjoy it more. I'll be lurking here to get some ideas for my set up.

    Hi Chris here from Melbourne Australia

    Been reading a lot here lately and now taking the leap to build a 4DOF system and wind simulator. So much awesome info here. Thanks for setting this up.

    Hi everyone!!!

    This is Andrés, from Spain.

    Let me introduce myself. I´m almost 42 and I´m studying again!!!! I´ve started a two years degree on electronics and, eheh, I got very good marks.... but on theory!!!! any practical skills, I´m afraid.

    In the very next course, on January, Students use to show some proyects that, sadly, they are already done.

    I dislike that, so I started to read here and there and I found that it would be awesome to build a 2DOF sim motion to show, so... here I am.

    There are some aims that I wolud like to saher with all of you:
    -I´d like to build a 2DOF, understand it, and try to improve it to 3DOF in a first instance. (Not in January!!!)
    -I WANT to feel proud od myself by building it. (I will)
    -I want to understand it great. learn a lot of electronics, both theorical and practically by constructing this SIM, and show and teach my partners about all this stuff to let them be better professionals and get a job (they are tuentis).
    -Finaly, I´d like to get a chance to become a teather in my school, that I loooove!!!!

    Well, this is me, and these are my aims, dreams, or what you decide to call. I hope I can do this SIM with your help and help others.

    See you soon, my friends
