The motors are Animatics 615W SmartMotors with 70:1 gearheads. We are using X-sim (www.x-sim.de) for physics data extraction and manipulation. X-sim outputs 6 variables in real-time that represent the position and orientation of the cockpit and our kinematic algorithms then determine the proper position of each motor.
Once we have done more testing and mapped the workspace boundaries of the motion platform, we'll be able to safely increase the amount of rotation to a theoretical maximum of around +/- 24 degrees, and introduce the remaining 4 degrees of freedom (sway, surge, heave, and yaw).
