    While my 6 DOF design is ongoing/on hold, I've decided to make a 2 DOF sim as I have most of the parts lying about.

    Main bits used:

    RCC-MK8 2S seat
    24v 42A PSU
    2x 24V 440W 1:60 worm drive motors
    2x IBT-2 43A H-bridge
    Ard Uno R3
    2x 360 hall sensor
    Fuse box
    2x 12v fans for control box cooling
    DC to DC buck convertor (24V to 12V)
    Stud and MDF board for frame
    UV joint (from a Land Rover)

    So far I have made the top frame and incorporated a wind sim and transducer from a previous build.

    Pot gears and mounting bracket

    All I can do for now while waiting for motors to arrive.

    Motors have finally come in so have been busy setting them up with the pots and electronics

    Ciao,
    Interesting job, where did you find the seat? I printed it (it's not like yours) by myself because I couldn't find one.
    I am very interested in owning one.
    Thank you.

    Lol, did you make the wheel console movable just to get into the seat?

    Yep, would have been impossible otherwise
