    Hi all,
    I'm quite new in this world and now, after reading a lots of threads, I'm starting to build my personal 2dof + traction loss.

    Choice of design:

    A draft of my design is this:

    Initially I'll work only on 2dof and then I'll upgrade it with the traction loss movement. I'll put the motors from pitch and roll in front of my sim

    Choice of motors:
    I have bought two 24V 55rpm motors from ebay and I have modified they to get a completely isolation from each other.

    Choice of power supply:
    I have chosen a simple and economic power supply from ebay. In my case 24V/30 A

    I use a 10k single-turn potentiometer for motor position feedback connected with two 3d printed gears for motor reduction.

    Motor driver board:
    I'll use a custom driver board designed only to control dynamic simulators, with 2 channel and Arduino Uno as controller

    Construction of the structure:
    I have just complete my rough structure. I'll start with tests and regulations as soon as possible.
