    Hi all, I just pulled the pin and ordered my Thanos controller and 1 x 80ST motor and driver to start with. Planning 6DOF with linear actuators. Being watching all the usual suspects and really enjoying what I see. My plan is to play around with the controller and one motor to understand how you pull game data and flow it through the controller to the motor. Once I’ve sorted that I’ll move onto the build. My question is about SimTools vs Fly-Pt. I believe both softwares will achieve similar results is this correct? Any advice on what I should use as a newbie to the sim world?

    Thanks,
    David

    My Motion Simulator:
    3DOF, DC motor, JRK
    Both are motion cueing software, you can use either or both, for a 6DOF Fly-Pt is more complex but will give finer control, particularly for flight sims.

    Thanks noorbeast for the feedback. My sim configuration will be setup for cars so I’ll move out with SimTools and can experiment with FlyPT later.
