    Hi I have a used 2dof simulator Now I have it set up so far, but unfortunately the wisher engines and potis adjust because the ball heads have given up the spirit in transport I've installed the same but it is unfortunately not true one quickly turns the other slowly ... and the movement in the game before that went on the test ride now do not go to the drain how can you adjust this best maybe you can give me tips so that I learn something and sometimes come in the matter would be happy synonymous have a picture attached
    Thank you

    They look to be wiper motors, do you know if the motors are ground isolated, what is the rest of the control boards used, what code is being used and what is the layout and balance of your rig like?

    Arduino and yes 2 wipe motors
    The code is from predecessor because I have to ask again exactly before I say something wrong now
    I have now the potis tried to 0 position with the smc utlitys to make looks good now I've noticed the lever on the engine has a game and I have to swap first


    the engines are indeed built in mirror image and work each for himself in the clockwise is that right?

    i found it by a wiper motor is the lever arm of the ball head knocked out and has apparently adjusted the poti where the ball head has come loose and then i worked through your tips in the forum and everything works out now i just have to look if there is a single lever or if i have to change the whole engine. i thank you no matter what you have you will find here in the forum a solution thank you
