thats more like it.
Nice job there, like the green machine.
Looks like you need to work on profiles and or motor speed,
There is motion, but looks a bit slow and laggy.
Otherwise, good job.

Thanks MotionDave,

It does need some more tuning but that is up to my students and they are no always motivated to do the hard work :-) . But within three months the simulator will be at my home and than I'll squeeze every drop of performance out of it :-)

Great report and product!!

What is the maximum load(payload)?

Hello Chas,

Sorry for the late reply, I was on vacation. I do not exactly know what the maximum payload is. It depends on the angle and the accelerationspeed.
Mechanically you can say the platform can take easily 200kg (with this I mean the weight of the driver). But since the motors have to bring everything in motion I think a person may weigh 120kg.

I'm still not in the proces of finetuning. The motorarms we made in school have to be replaced by the ones you can see in the attachments. Unfortunately in summer a lot of companies are closed for vacation or are to busy before the vacation. Luckily I found someone who can make these for me next week. It is a bit frustrating to have the simulator finally in my basement but can't do anything :-) .

As soon as I can start tuning I will make some more posts.

Greetings,
Bart

Hello everybody,

Here is a first video using the simulator with Dirt2:

I still have to get the vertical force working. Next up is a test with a rollercoastersimulator.
