    I know Beano has, but he's not frequently in this forum you could try and contact him at http://forum.virtualracing.org/showthread.php/95803-Project-BruteForce2-IONI-based-DIY-DD-FFB-Wheel-(Extensive-worklog) Beano doesn't want people to copy his work to other sites or forums but i hope posting this link is okay.

    That's all i could think of to help you :rolleyes:

    I've been keeping an eye on the sim-lab.eu website for a while now, they've priced their DIY kit as of this week :)

    http://sim-lab.eu/product/direct-drive-servo-kit-osw-ioni-based/

    They charge €1,089.00


    MiGe 130ST 10010 Servo
    Granite Cube 1x
    IONI Pro servo Drive

    I am definately keeping an eye on them on what they can do with pricing, packaging, accesoires, etc :)

    Wouldn't you be better of with the SimuCUBE kit from Granite Devices.

    SimuCUBE OpenSimWheel system is now real
    https://igg.me/at/simucube

    It looks like Ollie added a motor package that would be a good compliment to the SimuCUBE KIT.
    https://sim-pli.city/collections/all...l-motor-bundle

    $610 usd including shipping a good deal for:

    MiGE 130ST-M15015 (with 5000ppr encoder)
    Adjustable Motor Mount
    Motor Shaft to Steering Wheel Adapter
    Pre-assembled 3 metre Motor power cable
    Pre-assembled 3 metre Motor encoder cable
    Pre-wired Emergency Stop with 3 metre cable
    DB15 connector and ferrite cores
    Also is $50 upgrade worth it for the DB15 connector and ferrite cores

    SimuCUBE Kit $399 usd.

    I wouldn't know to be honest!

    The page you are linking to is offline.

    The advantage is that I am buying locally, saves lots on shipping and taxes :)

    Seems very interesting, also some prototype pictures look very clean and tidy and with a small footprint in mind. It might
    be worth the wait and see if this becomes a standard of sorts :)

    One concern, does the SimuCUBE support an emergency stop? I don't see it mentioned anywhere and would like to have the option.

    [emoji15] no i didn't get or hear nothing. Did they notify you it was sent your way or did it just arrive? When did you get it? How is it, easy to set up? How is the feeling in rf2. What servo do you use.

    Sorry for the lots of questions but i can't wait any longer. [emoji6]

    No Problem

    1. It just arrived no notice
    2. It arrived Friday
    3. Really easy to setup I have the motor.drc if you need it
    4. RF2 feels ok now a little more work to do, check this thread Progidy pointed me in the right direction
    5. I'm using a Mige 10010

    I did have some over volt errors the fix is to set the Over Voltage Limit to 49v otherwise the resistor does not work as it should (that came from granite)

    By the way it feels awesome :)

    I had some issues with overvolt errors you need to set the Over Voltage Fault Threshold to 49v for a 48v supply (advice from granite)

    By the way it feels fantastic

    Thnx for your response, yup some great people here in this thread and on this forum. I've seen Prodigy on VR forums (German) too, at least i think it's the same Prodigy because his avatar is the same over there ;)
    Have fun setting it up to your liking and if your done i wouldn't mind if you shared your settings, i will do the same so other people following the build with simucube have a starting point in settings for OSW/rF2.

    edit: Pictures looking great :cool:

    Yup, that would be me ;)

    Although I am not german, I do speak and understand that language so I am hanging often on VR forum to learn more and gather information :)
