    i saw this as a kickstarter

    has anyone tried one out ?

    My view is that YawVR is novel and compact, but very basic and entry level with respect to actual motion simulation, as you can't even simulate things like heave, as you would on a basic 2DOF design, and outside of flight, and in particular helicopters, the value of yaw is somewhat limited, with yaw also being a poor substitute for things like traction loss.

    The yaw seems to have a nice bit of travel on the axes. It can throw you around more than you want. It's still early and they are working out some kinks. I'm close to it's max height & weight recommended limit, so I am having trouble using all the travel available. They seem to have or are close to having solutions to most of the current problems. I love the design for the cost I paid being an early backer. The team producing it are a great bunch of guys, and I am happy with my purchase.

    I would love to understand how a basic 2DOF design is going to simulate heave better than the 3DOF YawVR unless one of those 2 DOF is heave.

    A typical 2DOF simulator can only perform ‚roll‘ and ‚pitch‘ movements. However, by having the pivot under the seat, pitch can also be used for simulating road bumps, which means a sort of ‚heave‘.
    YawVR has the pivot much higher, which makes simulating ‚heave‘ more difficult, if not even impossible.

    Hopefully the Yaw VR vibration implementation might help simulate road bumps.

    Yes, it surely will. And I am sure that riding Yaw VR is lots of fun. Please post some video and your experiences!
