    They are working on a 6 DOF platform capable of carying heavy loads like a 737 cockpit

    And if you have plenty of money, you can contact MOOG.

    Moog-FCS has its headquarters in Nieuw-Vennep, The Netherlands.

    MOOG creates the legs and complete motion platforms of many sims in the world.

    Many Level-D sims are equipped with MOOG hexapods.

    that Moog company indeed seems very nice. i know a 737 simulator in Bruges (Belgium) that works with a motion platform. But i don't know what kind of DOF or from what company this is.

    Phil.
    I've flown it. Its a 3 DOF and i think its their own (vd Broeck ?) design.

    I believ Moog Platforms start at 150.000 euro's. But then you get something thats used in real level C and Level D sims.

    As it starts at 150.000 then it's more for the professional market, it's not payable for just using as a home simulator. Maybe Xesasystems can work or make a motionplatform for just the things that a client wishes.
    The one from Bruges is pretty well made, there must have been someone with very good knowledge of it.

    of course. As said. They make level-D platforms.

    Even their 6 DOF will be heading towards the 100K figure. Inherent to the quality and the base price of the parts they use.

    The one from Bruges is pretty well made, there must have been someone with very good knowledge of it.
    Its a nice sim and at the price they charge for an hour its unbeatable.

    A good motion platform is expensive. you said it has to carry a 737 flightdeck + instructors station. Thats a heavy load. For that you need a heavy platform. I doubt there is a 6 dof with those specs aimed at the home market.

    If you want a platform for a home sim, then i suggest to stick to a 3 dof and something smaller. Take a look at one of the many DIY projects out there. And even then you are bound to spend quite some money.

    Do you have a price indication of a 2DOF?

    Price of a motion platform is totally dependent of the payload and also (but less) on it's dimentions. Not talking about DIY, but platforms with industrial gear go from 20K and up.
    The platform in Bruges (VDBroeck) is a 2DOF one.

    perhaps another alternative:

    http://www.msesimulation.com/2-axis-motion-systems.php

    € 8000 to 25000 for a 2 dof platform with a payload for 1500 kg

    I think a 2 DOF system is more than enough for a full enclosed cockpit.
    Anyone experience with the above mentioned manufacturer?

    regards

    Norbert
