    Good evening to all,
    I am completing the mechanical part of my simulator 2 dof,
    I chose the placement of the engines behind the seat mount above the shoulders.
    Using the gearmotors with 50: 1 ratio and 75 mm long lever. I currently have about 6 degrees
    pitch and about 12 degrees of roll.
    I would like to ask how many degrees should tilt forward and backward and pitch and roll sideways? What are the ideal values?
    thanks

    as much or little as you like, you can adjust the profile so one doesnt move as far as the other.
    My desk racer has 17 deg pitch and 7 deg roll, I just fiddle the profile so the pitch doesnt move as far as the roll.
    The foot motor mount sim, had the opposite, 8 deg pitch, 18 deg roll, again, I worked profiles to make sure they moved fairly even.
