    Hi Fellow sim enthusiasts,

    We've redesigned our motion sims so now they are fully modular. You can start with which ever motion you want and at to it in any order.

    Some of the products can switch to be used with consoles as well!

    You can see the new products at www.symdeck.com

    Hope you like them!

    Hi All,

    We've now added a 3 DOF pitch/roll and heave module to the system

    Hi All,

    Here are a couple of GIFs I've created to show how our Symseat seat mover operates. They show the harness tightening under braking and the seat back moving your torso when cornering.

    Hi Phlames,
    Glad you like it! The motors are built into the seat which can be purchased as a complete unit and added to other sims. You can see details on it here: https://symdeck.com/symseat-pc/

    Thanks

    Hi all,

    Here's a video showing the Symdeck modular system at work with a TL, s1 and s3 platform which now adds heave.

    Coming soon - Symbelt

    [​IMG]

    Symbelt is a stand alone racing harness with a built in tensioner that reacts to braking in racing games. It works in a very similar way to our Symseat which unlike other tensioners pulls on the crotch strap as well giving a better sense of braking but can be added to your existing seat and will be available soon!

    Professional sim racer Josh Martin test drives our motion simulator offerings. Here's a very short clip of what he thinks about them.

    A full video will be posted soon; basically when I can get through 5 hours of footage!!

    Here's the first draft short version. For those who want to jump straight to the PC only motion platforms the review of those start at approx. 11 minutes.

    Here's a video including the footage of Josh Martin's test drive of our simulators but with more info from us and more thoughts from Josh. The PC version starts around 16:30 and near the end you will see what surprised him the most!
