    So the Syren 1x25 would not do the job here? Or it's just not worth the trouble for 20-25 dollars?

    Sorry, I have no idea. What I do know is that we have tried other cards without success, usually too slow in switching. But this is outside my area of expertise. ;)

    If you are going to use an arduino and scm-3 sketch please get the 2x32.
    Quoted from the SMC-3 thread "At the beginning of the smc3-sps thread it's clearly stated sabertooth 2x60 and 2x32 are the only supported controllers."
    Hope this helps..:)

    To qualify for a free license the following criteria must be met in full:
    • You must be building a true DIY motion simulator. (Not built from a kit or purchased from a simulator seller, a model simulator does not qualify.)
    • Have a unique build thread or Showcase in DIY Simulator Projects. (The thread should show some effort, which means it should show progress to the rig testing phase.)
    • Have been a member of the community for at least 30 days.
