    I like the screw actuation, nice idea. Very ingenious.
    I thought of a triangle frame once, that was actuated by air bags from a scrapped air-suspension system. It would have limited movement unless coupled with a 3:1 cantilever system.

    Re: My triactuator

    I also think screw actuators are the most solid ones... since we kinda of use "domestic" hardware, i might be the most secure...

    using 3 actuators like this should give me roll, pitch, acceleration and deceleration plus a up and down feel...
