    Superb cockpit and controls :thumbs

    You have some pictures of the hardware for motion, but can you please add some details and examples of the cockpit working with motion.

    I am still testing and have set up on the workbench. So I'm still waiting for the Simtools software to make it move. Then I can mount the entire installation under the floor. I have taken some pictures and will be posting them.

    Just so you know the demo version of SimTools includes the fully functional plugin for Live For Speed, specifically for testing purposes. While I appreciate you are building a flight rather than race sim it really does not matter when it comes to testing and getting the hardware moving.

    Part of the eligibility for the free DIY license is that your build thread "should show progress to the rig testing phase".

    I'm a bit lost here. Do you want to move the whole simulator with just two 120W motors? You should add at least one zero to it. The whole frame has to be sturdy. The rod and arm you posted will just bend - even under the static load. Just as reference: Some users here put 2kW motors in their 6dof Rig - and the load ist just a frame, steering wheel, pedals, a seat and the driver. With 120W you could build a seat-mover.

    You should definitely do a proper calculation before moving on. How heavy is the whole thing you want to move? At what speed do you want to move the Sim?

    Or I'm all wrong and that's not what you try to accomplish. Maybe add some text and explanation to the images?
