    Little question about your actuator. What was your best travel distance of your actuator? Just trying to know if I have a good travelling distance with mine or if I should look for way to improve it.

    380mm before it hits the limit switches, but the placement of the actuators and sim frame design will have a large impact on how much actual sim movement you end up with.

    Thanks. Yes, of course, this is not the final distance they will travel, but the distance they can. I don't think mine CAN travel that distance and I really wonder why. Anyway, I have other things to worry about, like communicating with the game... Anyway, thanks again for the info. I'm back to simtool documentation.

    Have you seen any wear on the carbon actuator tubes?
