    My Motion Simulator:
    Hi guys my name is Jose. Am a new member
    I have always been in love with flying and racing. I came upon this site on google by chasing some dof motion sims online. Am very handy I used to code in visual basic , and also C. I also have excellent soldering skills. Also welding skills, some solid works experience and I am a German car mechanic which makes me a very good in electrical.

    My goals are to design and build a 7DOF motion sim to eventually make it into my dream of opening my own arcade business. If everything goes well. I had a few ideas of making my simulator hydraulic. Yes I know it make seem awkward but I think besides the mess if a leak is sprung. Should be a very inexpensive as compared to servo actuator type systems. I will be working on a few prototypes very soon and will be posting up pictures to see what u guys think. In regard to controlling the motion I would have to have a constantly running up to pressure p UK mp for the fluid and a valve/solenoid box controlled by solenoid to allow the direction of flow to and direction to the pistons. Am very good at electrical and electronics. And I haved worked on some road cars with similar hydraulic systems which is what gave me the idea. Am not sure if it has been done yet in the forum am sure it has been commercially due to weight and scale of things. Anyways am located in boston mass u.s.a and it winter here and besides drinking beer and skiing it gets boring at times and I need a good hobie. Thx and looking forward for help and expertise from all of you gurus
