    I decided to anchor the cokpit and prepare it for the motion, remove the 3 screens and get into virtual reality. Forgive for the English use translator ..

    but because it did not spin well, I tried x-sim with xpid and if I went and decided to use it, and it worked ... but I did not like the program very much ...

    continue with the project and help me with a program to calculate the forces of my design, simcalV01 beta downloads it from the forum x-sim but in this forum I think there is another, it helps you to have an idea of the force and the correct angles 20181209_215320.jpg

    I decided to buy the bosch engines of a citroen xantia in the scrapping, they are very strong and fast and 12 v, I weigh more than 85 kilos but they can move well, and isolate them from mass ....

    simply cutting the ground wire that goes to the brush, and welding a direct wire, the positive is the one that is already connected, in this case the fast speed is the red wire. 20181127_162400.jpg 20181127_213609.jpg 20181127_214116.jpg

    ... and thanks to Marc, a member of the community encouraged me to go back and try simtools with the code SMC3 and this time it worked, applying the following configurations ...

    What I like about this code is that it saves the configuration on the board and the seat is centered when you turn it on, that did not happen with x-sim, I also like the interface, now I only have to get the full version, and it is not necessary to be connected to the internet to use my favorite simulators, I am very happy and I hope that the complements work well.

    by the way, I do not recommend the server sources, the 60-amp PCs are better, I bought a server power supply and it was disconnected, now I use 2 PC sources, one for each engine.

    IMG_20181117_200959_088.jpg .. Now I just need to finish painting and cover the engines with a board and put some fans, and a box for the buttons that activate each engine, in short almost finished, but it works perfectly.

    Well, I bring a new modification, to my movement cokpit, the engines were very hot now it's hot, and I have cooled them with very efficient and effective LED heatsinks, I've glued them with epoxy sanding the motors so they stick well, and Now they work well, they do not heat up so much, I have also changed the direction of the left motor so that the thread is tightened with the force of the motor and it is no longer necessary to weld it, I hope it helps, thanks to all, I am very happy with my motion.

    The stick with epoxy and while dry, are fastened with a flange, 2 halves for each engine, also could be 4 but me with 2 is enough.

    By the way, my heatsinks are 110mm.
