    The revolution has started; it's not a matter of "if", but a matter of "when". Can one teach a new trick to an old dog?

    Hi Sanchez,
    its great to see your enthusiasm and strength to push your project! high respect from my side!
    One thing you should beware of is manufactoring costs. Your model looks great, but building this as a smooth and robust real scale simulator can be super super expensive.
    Have you already made a rude cost calculation?
    Do you intend to use your sim with a VR headset? Then motion sickness could be a huge problem in case the motion does not match exactly the vr (for this you would need surge, sway and heave).

    Nevertheless I wish you all the best in your project.

    Hello Sanchez, your project is truly impressive. In the future I would like to carry out a project like yours but not necessarily with unlimited xyz movements because I find that it makes things extremely complex. Do you have an idea of the overall impact related to the hardware?
    In any case, good luck for the rest of the project :)
