Finally finished! Take a look =)
Here is a short video clip showing it in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gYiSBwy0t0
Greetings folks! I was around a couple years ago asking questions and had one false start on a 2DOF motion sim because a knowledgeable internet friend talked me out of 2DOF due to the fact that more than 50% of my simming will be flight and space flight.
The result of that was my maxing out two credit cards to pick up the major components for a serious 6DOF build. Right about that time however, I got married and went on my honeymoon and no surprise that the project ground to a halt. Really most of the time between then and now I've been tied up with other projects but the time has come for me to bring my dream to life!
Thanos AMC1280USB and 6DOF expansion board ( http://motionsim.blogspot.com/
Torque Arms designed by DoctorD
6x AC motor (0.75HP) : MTR-P75-3BD18
6x GearBox (60:1) : WG-262-060-D
6x VFD inverter (1HP) : WJ200-007SF
I went with this build because it's been built by several people successfully with very satisfactory results. I figured if I was going to go into debt for this I'd better be sure it will work!
This is the post I got the basic build info from: http://motionsim.blogspot.com/2013/05/6 ... photo.html
I intend to start assembly in the next day or two, so keep an eye out for pictures.
