    This has just set a benchmark for me. If I can create anything close to this with even one screen I'll be more than pleased with myself.

    Cool rig!!! What have you used as balancing springs underneath the rig, they look like spring scales?

    @Erwan960, nice sim ! Do you have a link for the 2x Potentiometer PPC27 10k ? Where did you buy them ?

    Edit : As they are 360° pot, does someone knows if they are ok for an Arduino controler ?

    If they run on the Jrk they will run on the Ard. No worries.

    Thank you for the link.
    I did write to them to know the price : "Le montant TTC s’élève pour 4 pièces avec frais de port à 144.48euros."
    ... meaning 144.48€ for 4 pot. So approximatly 37€/unit.
    Outch :think!

    Thx @eaorobbie, for the information.

    indeed, 27€/unit + 12.40€ frait

    They are not cheap but are deadly accuracy!

    Great project.
    Should I build a simulator 2 motor type as yours and I wanted to inform me of such expenses according to the budget deal that ho.Mi can you say that you used hardware and software engines etc.. the total expenditure?...

    Not sure if I missed this in the thread... What is the height of your ujoint or a recommended height to use on a setup like this. Are the springs required in this setup? What benefits do they have?

    Thanks in advance!

    I finally found a little time to take care of my new engines. I was able to proceed with inversion of one of the axes.
    First good surprise: the system is in steel, much stronger than the first gear that I had which were all plastic. The system is very difficult to reverse. The cockpit should remain in position even when power is off.

    Second good surprise : the results obtained by adjusting the settings in the PID. The response time is very good and I did not overflow, even on big race (from 100 to 4000 for example).
    I hope to complete the installation today. More news soon!

    Yes it should stay still. I fitted 60:1 boxes to a mates sim and its impossible to turn the levers, all 80mm of them.
