    Hey

    Does anyone have a gs-4 seat on here? Im wanting to find out the length and width of the paddles that are used on that seat if possible. Looking to make my own gs-4 seat but wanting to make it as close to the official gs4 as possible :)

    For behind back and on seat

    Thanks

    I was watching a review on one of those the other day, had a full disassembly of it. would be pretty easy to replicate and all of the components are COTS units including the servo controller


    i'm surprised the 8 servos on the underside have enough power for you to sit on them. i understand they're beefy large scale buggy servos. but still.
    please document the process, would love to see a few more g-seat builds. the concept really has me interested

    Yeah it shouldn't be too hard to replicate it really. Hopefully @Avenga76 or someone who has one can let me know these dimensions and then I can get these paddles cut etc
