    Hi @BDZ
    Yes, I still use my original Keda 6364 motors in my sim - and I am super happy with them now.

    The other motors I had ordered for testing (a turnigy 6364, 190 kv and a 6374, 140kv arrived, but didnt test them so far.

    good to hear looking forward to your update.

    the reason I asked if you had received is because I ordered mine back in April and I am still waiting. so frustrating I've had the actuators their ready to have the motor put in for months but this has really held me up.

    hi mates
    this is not the larger update I promised, but something I really want to share with you!! This is my new sub-project I started due to the great work of @Historiker with his rudder pedals project. I felt in love with the design of his pedals and decided to print one myself. My Prusa-printer did an extraordinary good job and now I can hold the pedals in my hand - it feels like holding the hand of a girlfriend when I was young.... soooo nice

    Hi Dirty,
    I used the original Prusa-PETG and I think its the same that you used for your universal joints. Yes - I follwed your recommendation .
    Here is the link to the pedal-thread that inspired me for my new sub-project: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/diy-pendular-rudder-pedals.13130/
    But mechanically I will make it little different and with force feedback.
