    Thanks for sharing the videos of your motion simulator @Radioproffi. Your rig looks both solid and compact, well done :thumbs

    @Radioproffi great work, very compact design. Although you are using 3oW motors (only!!) the motion is fairly acceptable. For harder turns you have to switch to more powerful motors (in future).

    Repainted chair and slightly changed the location of the hinge. The chair is a lot better.



    In attachment some pics with parts.

    Forgot to mention it there (yesterday assembling was quite tenseful, even wife wife and a kid didn't see me much), and since the original design belongs to @Radioproffi, I think it would be nice to show how it works with high powered industrial Dc motors.
    My very first attempt in motion and some photo (will redo it asap with long exposure), need tweaking for sure.
    Anyaway, without @Radioproffi help I still be on static rig, now all my inputs should be reconsidered and reviewed, since high speed motion flood my brain with additional info.
    The construction itself feels very solid and sturdy, needs some adjustments though, but overall it has almost an industrial quality
    Below are photos of a completed configuration specifically for my needs

    Yes, it is the same product. I created a website to find out whether there is a demand for such products. Contacted Dustin, he forbade me to recommend Simtools on my site, asked to wait for version 2.0.

    With regard to the above seat - @hazardic found me on the forum and asked for help.

    Sorry for my english.
