I hesitated for a long time on moving to VR, so when a used Oculus Rift CV1 showed up on Iracings forum for $150 bucks I jumped on them. Granted they are the "original" customer version and things have improved (screen door effect) they still provide enough of a mental break to get the immersion. Will be upgrading them to either the new Rift S, or the HP Reverb in the next couple of month's. Would really love to get the Pimax, but can't justify the cost.
i will have 6 but i made 2 orders of three as i did not have all the money to buy 6 all at once and got excited and ordered 3 then 3 more but now i need to order the servo motors and drivers and am right on the edge of having enough money for them $1038 for 6 then i have everything i need and i hope to order those by the end of next week so it should be up and working within the next few months
Great. I didn't know you were committing that much money to the project. But, hopefully it will actually work. I think it is just a matter of the right hardware, ie, heavy duty enough to do the job without straining. And the right kind of software to interface the programmed motions to your servo setup. Good luck with your project.
i bought this controller due to it has software to do what i want it to do and i figure i will have from $2000 to $2500 in it but that is much less than the $6000 + they want for one and you still need to put a seating cockpit on top of their platform . https://www.tindie.com/prod...o-motion-controller/
Today i welded on the brackets that will hold the ball screw cnc tables that do the actuation and then ordered 1 of thee servo motors and drivers to see if it will work with the controller that i bought if it does i will order 5 more i found them on ebay new and if it works it will save me about $400
thanks i am like a little kid at Christmas my brain is is all over the place with what i am going to try first is it going to be just a rollercoaster ride or a dirt racing game or flying a plane or trophy trucks or world rally car and on and on
well it looks like the rest of my ball screw tables will be to me on monday but i will need to stay after work if i want to mount them and make the steel pads to weld the radius rod mounts to and bolt to the actuator tables i also need to weld the adjustable feet to the base so it can be leveled and not scratch up the floors then it all comes down to getting those servo motors and drivers the disassembly paint or have powder coated
well now i am just sitting back and saving my money to buy the servo motors and drivers as i have it all done but bolting a cockpit on top and putting the motors on it to make it move this is what it looks like right now painted with Chevy Orange
