    Default need advice motion platforms

    I hit 65 in a few weeks and thought I would crown the moment with one of these, I know nothing about motion platforms and was hoping for some advice, they don't come cheap this one on Amazon is £2,239.98 and will also need a seat to mount on it....... Maybe some of you fine standing guys can give links to alternatives or just some plain old advice...

    the shiny things under the seat dont look like pistons that can extend/retract. If so then I think that would mean no roll. Also no pitch.

    maybe more suitable for cars then. less for flightsims.

    did you look for threads about it? (Google)

    This site is for advice for 'Auto Sports Simulation' ONLY and not for hardware, etc. 'ASS' is for vehicles, specifically Race Cars, for FS9/FSX simulation. Nels set up this forum for OK Daley, his race tracks (scenery) and race cars. So it's not for anything else (ie:sim equiptment/hardware). Sorry.
