    Redone yaw axis stabilizer. Due shifting weight (one person sitting in and another one joins) upperframe pull or push down caused one stabilizer wheel to work extra while another was not spinning at all. Having adjustable wheel height would help motor not to work as much. Main weight shift compensation is done by gas struts.A this could be done in various ways, but this seemed to be easiest. Fringers crossed until real tests to see results

    Made a case for hall sensor. Used CNC equipment (gt2 belt and gears).
    To cut plastic is quicker and cheaper also harder material than doing it by printing. Paid 8 euros for cutouts.

    Coming to conclusion for using 4 34" monitors as display instead of two projectors. Two front monitors would create one stripe in the middle, but other two would blend into front window frame. Also this way would keep mirrors in their place, which also would be very hard to achieve with projection. Another benefit is no need to cover most of display to get decent brightness, instead ambient lights (arduino nano) over monitors positioned to illuminate car interior would be possible.

    Do you think projectors who could give 1:1 object sizes are better idea? Having in mind this project would travel on trailer to see places? Why?

    For now it would be neat to get proper lenght cables

    Somebody two or three years ago asked jokingly if rear lights come up too when you shift into reverse.
    Crucial function won't be missed

    Many undocumented demolition and rebuilding work put in preparing better place for thing to stay.
    Still humid and will be worse in winter, but less dust, dirt, warmer cave overall.

    Cemented in anchor points, need to deck the boat and level it evenly for upcoming work.

    Before doing anything stupid, like buying unknown reducer, lets connect motion system again.
    I have a feeling results will be better due new wheels doing much better job, altho, this wormgear already seem to have damaged teeth
    due its vertical placing and not making full circle causing no lubrication between teeth. In future, changing this into helical bevel (maybe???) one should think about filling boy up with more oil and installing oil "bleeder" ("breather?" lost in translation).

    Got a little board for USB hub and few cables with coils to hopefully reduce EMI. When motion and steering wheel motors are turned on, even a radio standing near simulator can't catch any radio station. This issue also requires deeper inspection.
    Not a cable guy, but this seems more managable!
