    New in our range, the Semi-3DOF

    We have been working on a system that combines the cheaper 2DOF technology and ads partly the third degree of freedom of the 3DOF.

    The Semi-3DOF !

    In a classic 3DOF, the platform is lifted by the motors, so the weight of the cockpit is mainly moved by the motors. In a 2DOF system, the platform benefits from a central pivot point.

    By our new technique, combining both the 2- and 3DOF systems, we were able to develop a system which next to the pitch and bank of the 2DOF also ads a fair amount of heave.

    The key points in this technology are the combination of different type of servo motors, positioning of the cockpit and specific software.
    So what does Semi-3DOF stands for, the 3 degrees of freedom are real but the difference with a standard 3DOF is that not the complete platform or cockpit has the third degree of freedom.

    Next to the 30 angle in pitch and bank, a heave movement of 25 cm is reached on the pilot seating area.
    As positioning of the cockpit is crucial, each platform is custom made, delivery time 8 weeks.

    Thanks to this technology, we put 3DOF in reach at a price of a standard 2DOF.

    Hi Ian,

    I will have a drawing online this week-end, shortly we will build our first S-3DOF series platform (still proto at this time), I will also document this then and provide video.
    By the way Ian, could you reserve some nice weather for the 12-13-14 june week-end, we have a 3 day flying roundtrip in Scotland, hoping to land on Barra
