    You can do it as we are using pneumatics. We have placed air bags on the corners of the platform and a hacked motor vehicle universal joint in rear center. We use EPIC to control the logic.

    Interesting, this may be a lower cost solution to the other methods of simulating motion platforms out there.

    Are you planning to release more details, or commercialize your project?

    If someone tells me how to connect between the sim movements ( up/down/right/left, also these motions during the autopilot ON ) with the four Hydrulics pumps, then i'll do that.

    Have you worked with hydraulica , you know about valves and high pressure ,
    made calculation weight to force ratio s flow
    again you have to read about the systems ,
    I have worked with hydraulica and winches and stuff , but I find it to dangerous ina household setting
    for a controller you can visit the mentioned website s

    do you know the total weight of your platform
    you only need one motor and 4 hydraulic actuators driven by electric valves and controled with a controller
