    For motors that can be back driven when not powered on members often use fold in chocks to block the motor.

    The other option is to power the rig on, but do make sure it is well balanced. The Joystick plugin can be used for games that do not have a dedicated motion plugin: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/marketplace/joystick-plugin.127/

    Noorbeast thx for answer. Rig also I using for internet surfing etc. So acc. to yours info, for me the best solution is using chocks or bars for pernamently and solid block motors or seat when no motion (no neccesary keep power on motors). This is no the best solution but why I can do. Again thx.
