    Hello !
    I'm from Austria and
    I want to build my first DIY motion simulator.
    Unfortunately my english is not that good, but google translator will help me the most.
    First of all, I would like to thank everyone who makes their pictures and ideas available here.
    So, as a beginner, I've already seen a lot and built a first prototype!
    And thanks, that there are people who can program and provide software so that you can realize your own small project with available budget!

    It should be a full-frame simulator because the seat already exists and I like to play flight and racing simulations, ...... DSC_2961.JPG DSC_2961.JPG DSC_3737.JPG DSC_2961.JPG DSC_3737.JPG

    Excellent job! I really like what you have built. This is the way I approached my first build as well. I built a small model before the big one. Nice

    thanks! :)
    At first I want to understand the technology behind it a bit.
    And that is easier to realize with a small model, .....

    cool report, greetings from Germany.
    It looks, that you also construct and work with lumber, also my favorite.
    I would like to start in the same way like you, so I will regularly watch this thread to get useful tips. And there will be some questions of course from my side. So pls keep us updated :)
    cheers

    Thank you :) greetings to Germany.
    I do not want to give any tips yet as long as my simulator is not finished yet.
    I do not even know exactly what my end product will look like.
    Until then I will simply accompany my way with pictures, ..... :)
