    Hardware for the SimTools enabled Yaw Kickstart motion sim is pretty much done, but according to the producers there are 3 software related issues to resolve before shipping comences:

    1; We want to further develop the controller app to make it much more user friendly and available on iOS and we want to prepare the PRO functionality

    2; We want to further develop the driver software, we have got a new version already which is promising.

    3; We want to develop a real-time position correction software because the orientation tracker can't perfectly track the orientation of yaw direction (the yaw orientation is shifted slowly), but we have an idea how can we calibrate it automatically (right now users should calibrate the direction from time to time)

    All those tasks above will take about 2 weeks to finish but those are not blocking the production just the shipping. We don't see any other serious issue now. So all of our backer can receive its simulator still this summer.
