    I really liked the look of the IMSIM simulator and thought it would be a good platform for a flight sim so I started drawing the design up in the CAD program and headed to our shop where my brother's plasma CNC is at. I've been working on it on and off for the last couple of months after work and on days off. I had a few design issues to overcome, and of course it takes way more time than one figures in the first place, but I am really pleased with how it turned out. It will be a VR only sim and I used the pgsaw motors from Canada and JRK's for the motor drivers. I haven't had a chance to try it yet but as soon as I get it up and running I will post a video. Anyways, hope you guys like what I've done so far. Thanks for looking!
