    Hi all does anybody know off hand if the motor used in an SFX100 system is the same as a PT-actuator motor?
    I built an sfx100 last year but never used it but I am now tempted by the Pt-actuator SFX termination kit which looks like it will work. Specs for the controllers looks the same but not sure about Motors, If there is a big difference or not between sfx100 and PT.

    Hi, so I was planning on making SFX 100. I started by taking the motors, I wanted to order the rest, but in the end I bought a Terminator kit from PT Actuators because at because of the current state of health, I didn't want to wait too long for the parts. I do not regret at all, this kit is perfect for engines dedicated to the SFX 100. Easy assembly on a Simlab chassis. The difference is that this kit is full metal / aluminum except the feet (PTFE?), I would even say quieter than the sfx and the stroke is 150mm instead of 100mm. A winning combo in my case. Hoping to have answered your question. I have only recently been a user, so I am just telling you my feelings and opinions.

    I was in a similar situation. I had already built an SFX-100 with 3D printed parts, used for half year. Then I wanted something more durable and better looking. So I got the DIY Ultimate from eRacing Lab.
    Been using this almost daily for a couple months now, still perfect. Currently thinking for upgrading to 150mm and getting into flight sim.
