    Hi!
    Im interested in the dream flyer flight simulator. Can anyone tell me how it works? It does not have any cylinders or hydraulics.
    According to information I found it works like this:

    The Dreamflyer™ captures the motion based on simple gravitational movements of
    the chair initiated by the user in response to the views on the screen. Close to what pilots
    do in the air. By using gravitational force to generate motions, the The Dreamflyer™ has
    eliminated the need for hydraulics and motors and associated costly maintenance.

    Does it mean, the user generates the motion himself? Basically, if I dont move, the seat wont move either?

    thanks

    Hi jojo,

    imho the dreamflyer is an excercise seat for seniors.
    You can work out your whole body with it. Especially your arms, as you have to move the seat simply with your arms and shoulder muscle power.
    It'll keep you fit, unless you spend at least one hour a day with flying.
    :rofl:

    I'd suggest you Tronics Joyrider, which is powered by window wiper motors. It's similar to the dreamflyer, but powered proportionally by wiper motors and real telemetric data.
    You will find more info about it here in the forum and youtube.

    Regards
    Christian
