    Full motion Cessna Home Cockpit

    Hello Community,
    I have set a task to myself to build an Motion-Plattform. The height should not cross 500 mm, so that it fits in normal living rooms. Nevertheless, she must create 20 degrees. The maximum movement must last less than 1.25 seconds. Because my Cessna cockpit weighs 300 kg without people, the engines must move at least 500 kg. The price may not be too high. After 1-year development I have this solution.

    WOW!!! Very impressive!
    which kind of motors do you use?
    I understand from the video that the motion is supposed to generate g-forces, and not mimic airplane behavior, correct?
    would love to try it out...

    Very impressive, and a simple concept. Reminds my of the jack in my car. Same principle. Just wondering what the seats are from? I have an Aerocommander twin, and need some seats. These look perfect. Did they come from one of those people mover type cars? Well done.

    The seats are from my VW T5.
    For it I have copied the rails.
    Thus I can mount to the travelling the seats in the car. And to the aviation in the cockpit.

    I am very inspired by this, it is exactly what I had envisioned myself. Just putting together a GA panel now and would very much like to do the entire motion platform. Any and all information including plans would be appreciated. Please advise cost for the same as necessary.
    Still flying my REAL Cessna 172 on floats for a while yet. Once the winter settles in I would be ready to begin a motion platform project.
