Motion Tests Day 15

Eureka!  I completed my first flight inside the box on the new motion system and it worked great!  The past few days have been spent mixing and matching control heads and valve bodies from an eBay lot I purchased.

My son and daughter took turns too.  Technically my son was the first passenger because I was still doing some calibrating.  I got the test bench program set up to respond to joystick input.

The platform is very responsive and sensitive and the effect of the pitch and roll is very effective with no outside references.

Buyer beware… my wife, kids, and family dog are sitting at the loading dock with the car running for an hour now… trying to pick up a BBQ grill.  She called me after about 30 minutes of sitting on hold with their “customer service” only for me to do the same.

The issue was with their processing of the gift card they issued.  No one called us to say there was anything wrong even though they had over a week and a half.

No one offered compensation for the lost time and gas.
