    Hi, fellas
    I hope this year I'll exit from "theoretics" and I will build my simulator.
    All parts (and all ideas) have arrived.

    You know, English isn't my native language... Sorry. That is why here will not many words but here will photos and videos.

    In first: Prototype


    In second: Test

    And some parts

    This is my DC 24V 350W motors (I have four)

    Nice simple design, are you going to do any load testing on those motors to see what they can handle (may highlight any issues with inertia or gear binding as the load increases)? What gear ratio are the worm screws?

    Hi, @SeatTime,
    At motor's photo you can see labels 24V 75 rpm 1:50 ;)

    And I will test motors in real rig...

    Hi @prilad, as I have loaded tested 200w 60:1 worm screw motors. Below as just food for thought, are some quick calculations I did for effective power with your 4DOF worm screw Vs my 6DOF ball screw design. Note that I ended up with more effective power than you (highlighted in yellow)o_O. If you also throw in the effects of inertia, CG (your design has all the weight above the motors drive axis), worm screw gear binding under load, chosen gear ratio = effective speed, you can see how some testing is certainly worth the effort to make some changes in your design (recommend you at least lower your CG;) by raising you frame axis connection point = lower inertia) before you get too far into the project. This could save you some time/cost/effort. All the best in your build.

    Only good design ideas. Congratulations!
    Engine: 350 watts available, but the actual consomation is High?

    Hi Prilad,

    Where did you buy those motors?

    Succes with you're project.

    greets

    Hi, any advance on your project?
    I have asked for the motor price to your link but i did not have any answer.
    What price have you payed with the shippping cost?

    I have had an answer to those motors but different specifications.
