    6DOF
    Hey all, looking to start working on plans for my 6DOF racing/flight simrig. I know theres a lot of resources out there but its overwhelming and I need some advice on where to start.

    Specifications that might be useful in helping me find the right info: Id like to keep it under $5K USD. I have a height limitation of 6 feet. I have access to a welder. I mainly use iRacing, AC, Dirt 2.0, and would like to get into flight sim.

    Any help is appreciated :)

    Any 6DOF is an ambitious first project. So doing some research before getting in too deep is time well spent.

    You will find plenty of helpful information in the FAQs, in particular check out the design and 6DOF sections: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/

    Also use the Custom Google Search function on the Recent page and filer by newest 6DOF projects, as there has been significant progress in recent project hardware and drivers.

    If something sounds odd then look it up in the glossary: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/glossary-of-acronyms-and-names.66/

    Good luck with your project.
