Default Portable full pneumatic G-Seat VR Pit

Hello DCS Fans, i want to introduce my homebuilt portable full pneumatic G-Seat who was a perfect addition to the great jetseat from Andre. It works with around 20 bladders,
10 high power servos and seatbelt and hipbelt tensioner. I use simtools and ardunio to communicate with dcs (it works also with x-plane 11 and Aerofly FS2). The G-Seat
produces pitch, roll acceleration and decelereation with the bladers and tensioners. The bladers lift and pushes you around 5 cm. The immersion in non vr is great but in vr it
was simply amazing because you are more sensitive. I want to encourage you to built your own gseat if you want to built a vr homepit in the future. If someone is interested i
can make a video of the g-seat in action and can so better understand the construction. I will thank Andre and f4l0 for the great Jestseat and Software, @xxpelle's from
simtools forum for sharing his ideas and code, feel free to ask if you have questions, i am shure i can help you if you want build your own g-seat, hope you like the pit,

greetings Volker

Hello Uli, your a10 pit project looks awesome, hello javelina,icebeat and Vampireone, thank you very much, i will make a video at the weekend and when more people are interested i can make video tutorial from start to beginning with all the hardware,software, programming, materials and so on that evereybody can built one from scratch and use is with dcs,xplane or car simultions, elite dangeous .., i think i make a mistake in describing the bladers not only lift you 5 cm and stop instead i mean the maximum range for the lift or push are 5 cm, so when you pull the stick 15 degress it lift you for example about 1,5 cm when you press the stick for a stukka manouever the bladers go down 3 cm, its very accurate and thanks to simtools i can mix all input signals, for example i use one bladder in the back only for surge and mix a little pitch to it, the effect is when you pull the stick the bladders on the leg and butt lift you and the surge blader on the back give you another pressure, so the effect was amazig,
