I'm keen to purchase one of these, but is it still a 3 month wait before producing from the time of order? Add in postage to Australia, and that's looking like a 4 month wait.

Excellent, I'll have a go at this while I'm waiting for my Jetseat.

Hi All

I received my Jetseat today and after trying it out for the past 2-3 hours, I have some thoughts/questions.

1. Is anyone else experiencing what only can be described as itching after about 15-20 mins of use around where the motors are located? I’m pretty sure it’s down to the motors getting hot but it’s a somewhat uncomfortable sensation.

2. I’ve spent my time with the Jetset pretty much solely with the f-18 and have started to notice that instead of the constant ‘hum’ of the engine, I’m feeling what only can be described as a pulsing effect which is rather annoying.

3. Is there anyway to adjust the motor curves? I’m finding it difficult to notice the onset of increased G/AoA though the seat as the motors seem to be only on/off with a very small curve.

Anyone else experiencing the same things like I am above?

Thanks!

Did you try modifyng default settings of SimShaker for Aviators? I find tuning down engine effect to 20-30% is better to feel other effects, otherwise the constant humming interferes.

For G-Load, I think you can set a threshold.

Front left motor stopped working.


EDIT:-

I managed to track the problem.

A wire on the bottom left connector (looking from the back) on the circuit board (in the middle of the seat) has come away.

I managed to do a very rudeamentary repair using glue but I don't know how long it will hold for!

How can I repair this properly?

What is the connector called so I can buy one?

Does it come factory made? Will I have to put a new one in and solder the end to the motor?

Those are standard connectors, used in various project. Do you have a maker space or repair cafe near by? Usually the folks there are quite helpful...

Hi F4lo,

I dont seem to have any of those clubs near me but thanks anyway.

Can I buy those connectors on the internet?

Do you know what they are called?

Do they come separate as wire and connector?

If I know what I'm looking for I could probably repair it myself.

In the mean time the glue seems to be holding

Many thanks for your help.

is this what I'm looking for:-

Most likely. If you've found some different versions when it comes to the dimensions then buy all of them, they are super cheap. So you can't do nothing wrong. But usually they are always the same size.

I love my Jetseat from Andre - it makes sims really come alive. For helos it is simply amazing. And Andre's service is excellent.

I've mounted my Jetseat motors inside the seat of my sim rig. It works extremely well and is super comfy this way.
Spoiler:

apologies for the rubbish photo

However the vibrations are strong enough to be noticeable on the floor below the gaming room, even with carpet and massive old wooden floorboards. I was playing through the Enemy Within 3.0 a few days ago and afterwards my wife asked if I was moving a lot of furniture around upstairs.

I have tried turning down the vibration strength but it doesn't make a huge difference. The rig sits on little round feet. Can anyone recommend a good vibration insulating material to slip under the feet which could prevent awkward explanations about my vibrating chair?

Cheers

Default Careful about customs cost

Good afternoon
Finally, today I received the pad, for Andre part have met the delivery date but my pad has been held in customs for 20 days and it has cost me to pay 90 euros more in taxes and fee to be released. Finally a small big disaster and expensive.
Now I am testing it and I think it is magnificent although I would like someone to guide me in relation to the adjustment of suitable percentages for each of the effects. I am using it with the USB mode and the plane is the A 10 C. Thanks for everything and I hope some help about it
