    Hello. Now I decided to create my own simulator. Inspiration for me was due to the construction of Sim from the next level of Racing, namely the Motion Platform. If someone does not know what to throw below the video with a review.
    This design is optimally suited to my conditions, and I hope this will convey a good feeling.
    As a basis, I decided to use plywood sheets in the size of 750x750 mm. P71018-130054.jpg As I decided to use seat passenger of the Peugeot 307, bought on the junk, it was quite pleasant. P71018-130015.jpg
    For the support of electric motors bought corners fastening size 140x140x140 mm, fit almost perfectly. P71018-130042.jpg Due to the budget of the concept, I decided to use electric motors from chevrolete lanos. In general, I hope my idea will be successful, I will write about everything here.
    P.s. That's how it will all look like. P71018-125829.jpg

    You are on your way now. There are lots of good examples here so if you need info look around its here somewhere. Making a sim is a very satisfying project. Enjoy the Ride!

    Hello. After more than a week, I have news. So, for this period was assembled together a universal joint, made holes in the mounting brackets for fixing the electric motor. In plywood sheets, it is also possible to install our hinge and attach the seat ridge, its simple dry cleaning, as well as a number of bolts and nuts, self-tapping screws.
    The next step is assembling the circuit consisting of Arduino and Monster Motoshield, the components for which come from China, and also wait for the ballars under the studs by 12 mm. This is all for now.

    Good afternoon. After almost 3 weeks, my order and China arrived safely. Packages with cards have not yet opened, well, and so the kit consists of connecting wires, potentiometers, two boards and connectors for connecting the motor power supply. At the moment in the 3d printing there is a special adapter from the shaft of the potentiometer, to the nut fixed to the shaft of the electric motor. Also in the coming days to me from China come hinges, all this news means that the process is coming to an end. If the administration is reading this, please give the key to Sim Tools, it would be extremely nice. Thank you all, I'll keep you updated. Till.

    Hello. Tell me, please, such a question. Why, after a key request for a Simtools, for more than four days there is no response? The form seems to fill correctly. I'm on the forum for more than 30 days. Thank you

    Hello. I apologize for not writing a long report on the work done. On this day, the simulator is fully assembled. For greater mobility on the lower platform installed furniture wheels, most of which are estimated approximately 50 kg. It turned out pretty well, and the weight is held and allows you to move the simulator. The electrician is all assembled, there was one question with arduino, but he decided to buy a new one, the good they have in my city. There were also a few difficulties with potentiometers, everything was decided perfectly. Also printed adapters that are installed between the nut and potentiometer, everything works fine. In general, the project is almost ready, it remains only to bring everything to mind, lay the wires carefully and so on.
    Proceeding from the post of noorbeast, I think that at the present moment I am quite advanced in the construction of that to receive simtools and already evaluate it in most modern games, right ? And yet, I do not know English well, strictly do not judge the translation strictly. Thank you.
    P.S. If someone has questions, then I will be happy to answer them.

    Mounting the top heim joint as you have is likely to lead to binding. It would be better if the top mount plate and the top heim joint were rotated 90 degrees.

    Unfortunately my design does not have too much space on the bottom plate, so if I rotate the motors there will not be room for potentiometers. I wanted to do this from the very beginning, but I had to refuse this design. noorbeast, can I now be guaranteed to request a key for the simtools?
