    It is possible: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...-simulator-home-build.7011/page-3#post-171459

    360 degree simulators are often discussed but rarely built as they are both complex and comparatively expensive to build, plus have some unique safety issues that need to be addressed.

    It would be a good idea to first build a working model before committing considerable time, money and resources that such a project would take: http://www.xsimulator.net/community...o-driven-model-to-test-your-design-ideas.136/

    There are some existing 360 degree discussions and somewhat similar member projects that may serve as a guide:

    https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/prototype-pitch-roll-full-rotation.5804/

    https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/360-degree-flight-simulator-home-build.7011/

    https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/6-dof-with-360-roll-and-pitch.8307/

    https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/360-degree-flight-simulator.8956/

    https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/360-degrees-sim.6687/

    Keep in mind that 360º simulators are complex for what they offer, and there are alternatives like G-Seats and pressure systems that arguably provide a better all round simulation system.

    hello noorbeast my question about this 360º simulator is compatible with (SIMTOOLS)

    As per the first link in my previous post it is possible, though 360 sims can pose some unique design and configuration issues.
