    Hello everyone! I want to show you the progress of my simulator created with the purpose of be used with Elite Dangerous with my oculus Rift. What you see here is a style that I created, I'm still finishing some adjustments . It has an emergency button system and an automatic ignition system for when you retract the lever of the stand. I still have to install my joystick and the systems of bass shake. I also need to add some other springs for the pitch with some stoppers to change according to the weight of the person. One of the things that I focused when doing it was to make the simulator very collected (it that way it wouldn’t take too much space and cheap. So far I can say that I have spent about $600 without the openWheel chair that has a cost of $ 380 and accessories. Well, I hope you like it. Please do not judge the videos as much as I had to do them with my cell phone. Thank you.[​IMG]:) 20161107_112108.jpg 20161107_190931.jpg 20161107_190941.jpg 20161117_150116.jpg 20161117_150135.jpg 20161117_150203.jpg 20161117_150246.jpg 20161117_150300.jpg 20161118_142844.jpg 20161118_142914.jpg 20161118_142922.jpg 20161118_143013.jpg 20161118_143044.jpg 20161118_143115.jpg 20161118_143208.jpg 20161118_143245.jpg 20161122_041908.jpg 20161122_042002.jpg 20161122_042051.jpg 20161122_042209.jpg 20161122_042259.jpg 20161122_042325.jpg 20161128_153420.jpg 20161128_172642.jpg 20161128_172656.jpg 20161128_184714.jpg 20161203_235106.jpg 20161203_235142.jpg 20161203_235151.jpg 20161203_235228.jpg 20161203_235246.jpg 20161203_235311.jpg 20161203_235340.jpg 20161203_235438.jpg 20161203_235504.jpg Safety System Diagram for Xsim.jpg 20161107_112108.jpg 20161107_190931.jpg 20161107_190941.jpg 20161117_150116.jpg 20161117_150135.jpg 20161117_150203.jpg 20161117_150246.jpg 20161117_150300.jpg 20161118_142844.jpg 20161118_142914.jpg 20161118_142922.jpg 20161118_143013.jpg 20161118_143044.jpg 20161118_143115.jpg 20161118_143208.jpg 20161118_143245.jpg 20161122_041908.jpg 20161122_042002.jpg 20161122_042051.jpg 20161122_042209.jpg 20161122_042259.jpg 20161122_042325.jpg 20161128_153420.jpg 20161128_172642.jpg 20161128_172656.jpg 20161128_184714.jpg 20161203_235106.jpg 20161203_235142.jpg 20161203_235151.jpg 20161203_235228.jpg 20161203_235246.jpg 20161203_235311.jpg 20161203_235340.jpg 20161203_235438.jpg 20161203_235504.jpg Safety System Diagram for Xsim.jpg 20161107_112108.jpg 20161107_190931.jpg 20161107_190941.jpg 20161117_150116.jpg 20161117_150135.jpg 20161117_150203.jpg 20161117_150246.jpg 20161117_150300.jpg 20161118_142844.jpg 20161118_142914.jpg 20161118_142922.jpg 20161118_143013.jpg 20161118_143044.jpg 20161118_143115.jpg 20161118_143208.jpg 20161118_143245.jpg 20161122_041908.jpg 20161122_042002.jpg 20161122_042051.jpg 20161122_042209.jpg 20161122_042259.jpg 20161122_042325.jpg 20161128_153420.jpg 20161128_172642.jpg 20161128_172656.jpg 20161128_184714.jpg 20161203_235106.jpg 20161203_235142.jpg 20161203_235151.jpg 20161203_235228.jpg 20161203_235246.jpg 20161203_235311.jpg 20161203_235340.jpg 20161203_235438.jpg 20161203_235504.jpg Safety System Diagram for Xsim.jpg


    While I'm building the simulator I have been using my All in one Gamin Booth to play with the oculus rift

    I found the base rather small for lateral movements
    The simulator may fail?

    No, the base will be screwed to the floor! Thanks for your comment

    I did not see that it would be the case

    Therefore, it does not risk any more
