    I am building my simulator with three motors in a triangle. I’m wondering if the motors should be in an equilateral triangle? Mine is based off of this kind of simulator
    His look to be equal in distance. Any feedback is appreciated.

    A symmetrical triangle design is very common, and that works very well, but some 3DOF are not equilateral triangular based, often for very specific reasons.
