Has anyone built a G-suit system, or interested in trying?

    Hey guys. I'm planning to build a G-seat to add to my sim soonish and I keep running across the G-suit setup as well which seems to be commonly used in conjunction with a G-seat for high performance fighter type aircraft simulation. Here is an explanation and diagram: https://www.acme-worldwide.com/products/dynamic-motion-seats/fighters/g-suit-systems/

    Turns out the actual suit itself is available cheap on ebay! I've got an air compressor and tank, so "all" we need to figure out is:

    • Computer controlled air pressure valve system
    • Simtools control of that sytem
    • How to use telemetry to drive the system

    I'd love to be able to add this. What do you guys think?

    Mind you I'm in no rush to start this, the Huey pit still has a long way to go and I have to build the G-seat but it might be fun to discuss.
