    Thanks for that chris also i can see on one of you photos you have the dimensions of the base plate. Are you able to do the same for the dimensions of the cockpit frame? Also is there anywhere on this website that shows you how to tune actuators using flypt or are you able share some settings as im gonna use the same 500mm ball screw length as yours

    The end of the of the ballscrew that is in the leg (tube ) has nothing on it to help center it ? I was think of some kind of ballend that could slip over it with a keeper that would be just smaller than the ID of the tube ?

    Hi I'm not sure if you have seen his YouTube channel but look at the thanos controller review at 29.30mins and it has his flyPT mover dimensions which will help you with your dimensions. I think it does anyway

    Here is the prototype top joint I might use in the final setup. Rotating universal joint inspired by PT Actuators. One at each end.
