After many years simulating in conventional manner, ie with static cockpit, 6 monitors, accessories, steering wheels, manhces, etc. etc. I finally decided to build my DOF platform. The problem is that almost everything I see is VERY EXPENSIVE. (First, I apologize for the bad English, I'm Brazilian and I do not speak the language, but I'll try my best.) Anyway, the will is actually putting up a 6dof, but it seems to me that $ 10,000 is a lot of money at the moment. I did not find any topic like the "user projects> 6 DOF step by step DIY projects (with blueprints)" - GA-Dawg user - for 3 dof platforms .. could someone help me? I'm totally new to this area, but when I get something to do, I go to the end, and I get it. But not to start wrong, I wanted to know if there is any topic to tell me which engines are better, what parts I have to use, things like ...
And if by chance, there is a model in 6 DOF that is cheaper than the 10,000 of the design shown!

tronicgr: @fimmy I had to put it on hold to finalize the manufacturing of the new kickstarter controllers. I tested parts of it to ensure compliance with the new features and looks good so far. I'll get back to it soon for integration.

Trip Rodriguez: Sorry tmcnam, the shoutbox doesn't get much attention. Did you find the blueprints? They are at the VERY bottom of the extremely long first post. It says "attachments: 6DOF.zip
