    Next steps: add the 4th DoF platform underneath the actual simulator, paintjob, and add my PSVR helmet.

    It’s been some time since I posted here. I was on another project: 4WD electric Buggy ;).



    For the last 2 days, I’ve been working on the 4th DoF of my motion sim, for Yaw. I’m using ball bearings, and a pivot at the front. It moves very well by hand. Will connect 4th motor soon to test it, and add wheels on the top of the simulator base to maintain it well towards the black base:
