    2DOF, Arduino
    Hello! I present here my project in test state. At this moment I am in the test stage of the forces of the motors, measures and heights of the seat, steering wheel and other components. I am using an Arduino UNO R3 board, and a Monster motorshield board. The initial configuration is done with SMC3Utils and really is an amazing application for ease and simplicity. You can see that at the moment is a simple cockpit since I do not want to waste materials so for now I'm recycling some old pipes to understand the mechanism well before making the final version.
    My son and I are very happy to have done this and the best part is that it works! We are very excited and we will make some upgrades to improve performance.
    Then I share some pictures so that I can see our little Frankentein. Regards!!!

    Ante todo te felicito por tú proyecto, yo con mis hijos estamos por el mismo camino.
    He estado probando con X-SIM y me ha resultado muy engorroso y ahora encontre esta comunidad y software y espero que se me haga más sencillo y pueda encontrar ayuda para poder lograrlo.
    Te adjunto lo que tengo hasta ahora para las pruebas de sincronización del motor, he tenido resultados muy parciales ya que en la parte interna del motor coloque un engranaje que hace girar un engranaje menor que está acoplado al potenciómetro, pero cuando inicio la aplicación no se por que motivo el motor gira unas vetas completas y me revienta los potenciómetros...
    Te hago una consulta, vos tenes alguna guia básica para configurar el Simtool? Que firmware se le graba al arduino? desde ya muchas gracias
