    My Motion Simulator:
    2DOF, Arduino
    Hello Everyone!

    I build my own 2DOF Motion Seat and Today was my first Test with Life for Speed.

    Everything was fin until I hit a Wall. At that Moment one Motor starts slowly to spin and did not stop until I cut power.

    After some Troubleshooting I found out, that the magnet on Motor 1 lost contact to the Sensor (RTP180LVEAA).

    In SMC the green Line falls under the red Line and the Button in the upper left changes to off. Sadly the Motor keeps on spinning.

    I can reproduce the Error by dragging the Wire out of a0 or a1 on the Arduino will one motor is in motion. Again in SMC the green Line falls under the red one but the Motor keeps spinning.

    Is this a Bug ?
