    The prototype is ready, unfortunately is no in-game video yet. I think on Friday I will show the first video.

    I hope to finish with modifications and testing in January.
    Experience has shown that due to the large amplitude need to make attachments holder for the monitor or use VR.

    @Radioproffi... It will be necessary to drill in the actual metal base to support the upgrade?

    @Radioproffi... Do you think the motor you have on the traction loss upgrade is strong enough to effectively move my rig. Mine is pretty heavy.

    No need for base modifications, add-on uses the leg holes for mounting.

    We can use more stronger motor in your add-on and use more transfer units.

    On your 3dof upgrade do you have have some kind of hearing for the front pivot, or is just metal on metal. Could you take some close up pics of that section please and explain how it works, thanks.

    Does any one have tried the simtools 2.0 with dynkit?
    The actual plugins work in the new version?

    You will need a commercial license but SimTools 2.0 will work.
