    Hi, since i was never a friend of the sway / surge Motion Sims i took the possibility with the affordable Motors which are sold by Simukit and constructed a Plattform Mover with heave ..

    This was my second Motion rig by the way
    https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/another-scn5-based-sim-made-by-ringo.1252/

    I used
    - 3 x 400 Watt Gearmotors sold by them
    - 2 x Sabretooth 2x32
    - 1 x Arduino Micro
    - 2 x PSU (simukit)
    - 4 Springs as support
    - 6 x Cranks made by a friend
    - Structure welded by a friend
    - Some metal / screws ..

    I also added a harness tensioner which is driven by a 120W motor taken from my Seatmover attempt with 4 x 120W Motors on the 4th output on the sabretooth. Seatmover was this



    So this is it, the actual project


    Works good ! Seatmover with VR is great if you dont need the Sway Voodoo .. Harness Tensioner is also a great alternative for Surge .

    I forgot the Springs, if you ever plan using the simukit motors and a long lever, dont forget to include springs :)
