    Hi

    Ich habe an meinem Pneumatic G-Seat weiter entwikelt.

    I continued to develop my Pneumatic G-Seat.

    This is a fantastic implementation - compact and visually pleasing. I wish I had a 3D printer...

    And as @Extremier said, I love to see RC servo use - reminds me of my years building and flying RC planes and helis.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Mars

    Having 2 servos for the seat belts, does it improve the sensations over using just one?
    I am wondering if it is worth going from 1 to 2 at the moment
    thanks

    I use 4 servos on the seat belts, 2 over the shoulder and 2 in the pelvis.

    Unfortunately Simtools does not have enough ports "only 6x a and 6x b" to control everything separately.
    I need 6 axes "1-6 b" for the stuart platform, and 6 axes "1-6" +1 "a" for the G-Seat.
    so I have to combine the seat belts with other axes.

    To your question:

    2 servos are better than 1?, the power is distributed over 2 servos, so that each servo is less stressed.

    TO SIMTOOLS DEVELOPER @yobuddy

    please add axis c.

    Best regards Torsten

    and power aside, do you feel an interesting left/right asymetric tension? probably in curves
