    Coming along real nice man! I'm also probably mount a monitor just for when a game doesnt support VR or if i just don't feel like it. Plus easier to get tuning and stuff when alot of keyboard work is required haha. probably just get a super ultra wide thing.

    have you seen these mate.. they look to work pretty well!

    Yes I have seen them but I think from what I've seen they are more of a problem than a resolution, reflecting the image cause a mirror which moves the wrong way just better with a thin bezel IMO.


    yes I have vorpx but its implementation is not the best for a lot of games and some games you just dont want to play in VR.

    Sorry for not updating much but ive had nearly 2 months of torture with the Odrives. Love hate relationship at the moment but they are working.

    First real race test around 2 hours use and no issues apart from pulling a encoder cable out which was my fault. motors were cool and the odrives fairly warm , happy days

    Excuse the driving I've been out the game for 3 months need to get practicing again lol the detail is incredible compared to my old setup I could feel the flat spots in my tyres after heavy lock ups through the actuators as well as my steering wheel.

    what is the deal with the odrives ? are you struggling to control the motors at lower currents ?

    @SilentChill Excellent work mate! I've been flip-flopping between Thanos and ODrive to drive my system but the more I see coming from you and Wickie the more confident I am that your option is the way of the future. Is there any chance you could pop the most important info on a word document for future reference? Chances are I'll be reaching out to you, Wickie, Zenneth and Insecta Tech when the time comes to start programming and calibrating the ODrives but it won't be for a few months yet, and all the minor details you've had to deal with might be forgotten as time goes by.

    Either way, great work dude :)

    No just the whole setting them up and getting them calibrated and working. No problem ow they are running it's just getting the right settings which took a long time, and having the correct firmware

    Hi silent chill ,
    In your different video, you don't talk about the limit switches . Are you using them finally ?
    Thanks for your answer :)
