    Hi everyone,

    My name is Sijmen (Simon) and live in the Netherlands. I built a flight and race seat using the Simul8r plans a couple of years ago (see profile picture). I stumbled across some pneumatic cilinders and valves and started to look into upgrading my seat.

    I found the instructable by dnicky about the pneumatic Joyrider, through which I found out about xsimulator and SimTools. Great t learn about this tool. Amazing to see how large this community is. And what information is already available.

    I am definitely upgrade my seat! :grin It should be multi purpose, like my current seat (racing, flying, helicopter). I have experience with electronics, but no experience with pneumatics. It would be fun to learn about it.

    My first thoughts would be to start with a design based on the Joyrider. Perhaps try to integrate my Simul8r in it. Or design a complete new frame.

    Open questions are:
    • Pneumatics or motors
    • 3D tv Screen on rig or PSVR
    • Joyrider design or modified Simul8r
    • 2 or 3 dof (tilt, roll and yaw)
    A lot to read on this forum. Tips are welcome :)
