I know the feeling… :smiley: Mine isn’t “done” either as the armrests should have been a bit higher (hence I made the foam pieces thicker, but it still isn’t quite enough I think), and angled slightly outwards.

So how do you like the Yaw in ED ?

Hopefully Feelthree delivers a functioning product then I can step my sim cockpit game substantially.

Can you describe it a bit more, how does it support your immersion, which kind of effect do you feel ? Do you feel acceleration, braking or is it primarily turning your orientation horizontally ?

Their Site (FeelThree . com) goes to a phising site… not a good sign.
Did they move and the domain is hijacked?

Oof this thread is making me want to fix up my HOTAS setup, I just put up with them on my desk.

I have a really good ergonomic chair which I needed when back pain got really bad, but they’re very expensive and I lucked out with a cheap one on ebay https://www.hermanmiller.com/en_gb/products/seating/office-chairs/embody-chairs/

Although usually when anyone asks me what it is, I can never remember the brand name, and just say ‘it’s something like Harman Kardon’ :smile:

Well, last KS update came on 30/3, and Mark Towner is actively tweeting (about general VR / developer stuff) so they still seem alive, not hiding or so. Of course this unfortunately is a high risk investment due to some factors, so I have to hope they will eventually manage to get something usable out of the gates…

Yeah I did, whether something actually gets shipped though who knows. He still has regular KS updates regarding his progress so thats a good sign. I dont see any timetable though, maybe this year, maybe next. I just figure one day it might show up as a surprise on my doorstep lol

What really impressed me about the YawVR at CES was the range of pitch it could go through, as responsively and smoothly as it could go through it. That made it one of the most convincing full motion simulators yet.

The size and shape of the ‘chair’ it presented was less impressive, but still way better than I had expected would be possible.

I have been thinking that the principle might be cost effective to scale up to a large sphere (unlimited travel range), simpit size, with a single type of motor/thruster assembly used as many times as needed.

Which is exactly why I backed the FeelThree rig - it‘s the same principle, just in XXL


Of course they will have to manage to turn it around and produce & deliver the product. But the potential is there, the solution is simple & beautiful. At least from a general point of view, many of the technical details willl be anything but trivial, of course…

@zuiquan1: hello, fellow backer :slightly_smiling_face:
