Hi to all,

I decided to present here my project that involves a full motion DIY flight simulator moved by simple 12volt car wiper motors. It is moved by a basic stamp2 microcontroller attached to the computer thru serial port that controls the position of the motors. It can be used with several free motion software and I have info on some of them on my site.




Here is my project site that describe it all in detail:

Edit: I hope that its ok to post link for it, but otherwise its difficult to link the entire details here.

I'm about to change the BS2 electronics with more perfect DIY AVR motion controller that includes a 49amp DIY mosfet h-bridge. I have not posted yet this info on my page but I have made a little zip that contains all the plans and guides to make and use it:

I hope that it will be useful to someone...  Smiley

How much does it costs? (Aprox, without counting what got broken while building)

Hi Loft,

The cost for the materials of the motion simulator (not including LCD, computer and stick/wheel controls) is around 800 euro.

But you can greatly reduce the cost by making your own the motion controller and the motor's h-bridge by following the plans in the zip file I gave above...

hi tronic,

very clever project, but is it a robust construction?

Hi Otakis,

You can make the construction as robust as you like! I chosen to avoid the use of soldering parts together so if you look closely, you will see that every single bit of it is just bolted!!! Even the pulley on the motor!
