Long time no see!
The second axis (Pitch) is on the way...giant gears, driving shaft and chain sprockets are done.
Also some modifications on the Mainframe. Now i have to build it all together.
And after that i try something really completely different
It´s about the old story: This pit can only simulate attitude not Gs.
So i go through the suject and may have a real good solution:
I plan to enhance the 5 point Seatbelt with a tensioner and 8 cables!
4 of this cables are connected (sewed) in 4 mesh 25cm tubes, which are fitting easy over forearms and thighs.
The 4 others are connected to the installed Seatbelt and sewed on shoulder, neck and belly.
Without Gs in the plane you can move all extremities as usuall - the cables are loose.
Now when you pull and let´s say 2 positiv Gs are on, the 8 cables winding up and pulling your extremities to the bottom.
You still can lift your forearm for nose picking, but you need a little force to do so (about 2kg).
When you´re pulling 8 Gs, the cables just nail you´re hole body and extremities in the seat with up to 40kg force.
This should creat a good "simulation" of Gs.
At least you don´t suffer a Blackout, cause you Blood is still in the Head.
Also your stomache won´t spin up-side-down, what some people may appreciat
The good thing on this "Puppetmaster" is: It´s works pinpoint in all attitudes.
So even when you´re flying inverted and start pulling, you will have the (realistic) "feelling" your Body is pushed into the Seat!
At the moment I´ll try to re-code the arduino software to generate the right forces (not position like befor).
Uhhhh and i´m thinking about a emergency cable cutter, for sure!
