    My first post, So 'Hello' to all of you. I've wanted to build some type of Motion platform since I got the Oculus Rift CV1 a few years ago. Finally started digging in and making it happen. Appreciate all your posts and projects as they have paved the way .
    I am waiting to receive my recently ordered JRK12v12's but currently I have my platform moving with Arduino +IBT2 and 10k hall effect pots with the 'crab pot' motors. For power i am using a 12v battery with an isolator switch.
    Here are some photos to show a bit of progress to this point

    Thanks, Here are a couple other photos. I think by reading through the other posts I should start a separate thread for my project. So I guess i will
