    This is basically just a clone of SilentChill's actuator design. I have made some small changes, but nothing substantial.

    I have done more work on the top frame. It is now strong enough to hold my weight. I am DIYing some flight and driving peripherals. Once they are done, I will add some permanent fixings for them.

    Everything is wired now also. I am just waiting on a USB hub, so I can reach my computer. Then I can start testing.

    Got things moving today. The noise is a definite issue ATM. Still trying to figure out all the FlyPT filters. Hoping to play some Star Wars Squadrons tomorrow.

    You can see him climbing into his rig at the start of this video.



    Seems OK to me. But he has said he would prefer not to have them.
