    Had some issues with mounting OSW. Motor shaft adapter is quite hard to get perfectly centered and this causes sort of elliptical and not rotational movement. This amplifies when steering column is connected.
    Pitch axis motor is sort-a in, will have to wait for another VFD to arrive to test things out.

    First pitch axis slow movements.
    Acceleration/deceleration is set to 1,5 seconds, because going max power creates wobbling, bouncing and all sorts of shaking.
    To fix this springs, additional wheels and tightening frame will be added

    will need planetary reducer for pitch as bouncing is seen in gif

    As seen in photos, there are lot small things to do.


    If I ever get to do something similar I definitely consider leaving most of wires and learn something about digital signal and can-bus.
    For steering wheel itself used wheel with shifting paddles. They are comfortable, button press is by push or pull on both sides. All left is to find Bluetooth board with battery and fit it inside -

    can anyone suggest?
    what about Bluetooth mouse - can it be made into it?

    I'm also running into problems with USB power - as getting more and more devices in sometimes one of input devices decides to randomly disconnect. Had to put motion board in front panel USB port, wouldn't work with back ports. Any "active power" USB extensions you know?

    When you started this project I never imagined just what an amazing job you would make of it. Really impressive piece of engineering

    There have been a few guys with usb power issues with the Reverb HMD, so lots of people looking for reliable powered hubs. This guy seems to be happy with this one
