    My Motion Simulator:
    3DOF, SCN5, Arduino
    Haven’t had a ton of time to use the rig lately but everything continues to hold up really well. No more repairs / adjustments needed over the last little while. With the power available in this system, it can almost be overwhelming and excessive to the point that you get pushed in the wrong direction. I’m quite happy with it but always looking to improve further. I would say the biggest issue that I’ve found is that the motion is not quite as linear as I was hoping it would be. It’s not on/off, but if you imagine the arc of a circle, the beginning and end of the motion is less linear than the middle. You can overcome the lack of linearity at the upper extreme by adjusting the axis limits and min/max values, but smaller motion cues are less pronounced than with my previous gseats. This is a design related limitation, and one I’m willing to accept.

    I am going to try one other approach - I bought a rib vest and will attach the bowden wires directly. So rather than paddles pushing against my back and sides, the rib vest will pull my body against the side of the seat. I’m not sure it work well (might be too low on my body) but I’ll be giving that a try in the coming weeks.
