Dear Mr. Thanos , i want to thank you for your inspiration. If you remember me from your youtube channel. I took your advice and joined the forum. So far we have managed to test our control ststem. We are using arduino leonardo as our microcontroler as it can be used as a keyboard and mouse on a pc platform. We use an analog joystick and connected it to arduino. Then connected the arduino to both the PC and the VFD variable frequency drive to 2 DC motors with quadrature encoders connected back to arduino we managed to mentain the motor speeds over different loads in the motors , and at the same time synched the shaft rotation speed with the in game simulation plane rotation on both axis. The current problem we are facing is that the sync between shaft rotation and plane rotation is not quite acurate. We need a feedback from the game with the plane axact rotation angles on both axis so we can compare it with our gyro readings of the rig and code the correction method in order to insure complete syncronization. Any feedback is highly appreciated.
Is it possible to get that feedback over serial from HAWX game we are using. If not , is it possible to do it if we make a flight sim game on cryengine? I really need your feedback on that. I'm sure that your 6 DOF rigs you bilt especially for cars require feedback from games with even more complicated data like collisions and such as motion feedbacks from game effects over the car itself. Really appreciate your feedback We want to step into the next phase and start building the whole thing but we cant do that until we confirm the proof concept model with accurate sync between sim and rig
Thanks a lot for your feedback , we started digging in that direction and hopefully we will get results from it. Will keep you posted. In the mean time we are checking a solution from unity to arduino. As the game can be written in unity as it is in cryengine.
dureiken: Hi there, it's really quiet here someone could help me for my 6 dof project ? thanks a lot

tronicgr: dureiken Hi, Open a thread and I'll try my best to help. A little busy with Kickstarter details at the moment but I'll see what I can do.

fimmy: How's the firmware going?

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.

Theuns: Very nice design.I'm also busy with mine and changing it also to Linear Actuators with 220v Servo motors.I'm waiting for my new controllers from Thanos. If I may ask Do you have any Sketchup files of your design and willing to share it I Thanks Theuns

atayeu: Hey everyone! I'm reading up and gathering all of the intel I can find for my first motion platform. this is by far best information for creating one.

tmcnam: I must be crazy but I still can't find the blueprints to the platform by GA-Dawg. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

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
