    My Motion Simulator:
    2DOF, DC motor
    This started about a year ago.
    My goal was to make a seat with movement more closely resembling forces in a car, so far it's going well.
    You can judge for your self from these videos.
    Being my first sim I thought I'd need 24 volts for the movement I needed. Not the case so far. Started at 24v, Smoked 1 of the 12v power supplies and never replaced it!
    Using a pair of Wheelchair motors, 2x32, Kangaroo2, Encoders, (1)HP DPS-600PB, Thrustmaster 300, LG pf1000

    At this point I'm going to upgrade the drive to timing belts, so I can get another 10 to 20 degrees of travel.
    Adding another Sabertooth and Kangaroo, so I can put in Heave and Traction loss.
    I'm limited to about 2 ft of heave because of low ceiling. Might need to find a place with higher ceilings. : )
    Aslo working on a loadcell brake pedel.
    Thinking about putting in 3 monitors if I can find a pair of ROG bezel strips.
