MFS highly recommends MFS-S3DOF-2 for HOME COCKPIT BUILDERS
In the early days of home simulation, we would only dream of having a motion simulator.
Nothing is less true now so we offer a motion system for the home cockpit builders that allows expansion of the cockpit from very basic setup to a full shell setup.
So… why not start with an affordable and future safe platform where you can build your simulator setup from the first basic setups and let your project grow over the months/years.
From day 1 you will be flying a motion simulator and as there is simply no way back once you have flown with motion, you can still use your very first motion platform and make it evolve from a simple simulator to a complete cockpit shell simulator.
Thanks to the use of a new technique combining servomotor power and exact and innovative positioning of the simulator and its pilots but also the very platform design, we are now able to create the so very important “heave” motion on a platform using only two servo motors. This is MFS’s unique SEMI-3DOF SYSTEM technology.
Before the so called S3DOF technology, using 2 motors only offered the basic pitch and bank motion axes so pilots could experience climbs, descents, and rolls. These days are long gone now thanks to MFS S3DOF system.
Now you can experience and feel at the best price turbulence, shear, accelerations, decelerations, gear bumps and so much more thanks to our washout filters integrated in our highly effective motion software.
Tested and confirmed by real world flight instructors, our SEMI-3DOF system is THE system for the home building community, making motion accessible for any real flight simmer wanting a high level of reality in flight while keeping his wallet safe.
This system can support 2 pilots and your home cockpit as well as our super light visual solutions with a limitation of 500kgs. Builders requesting more weight can select other solutions such as MFS-S3DOF-3 and MFS-S3DOF-4.
WHY S 3DOF?We believe each cockpit builders strive to reach the ultimate goal : getting their simpit as real as it gets.
Of course, the ultimate solution is without any doubts a 6DOF motion system.
Unfortunately, this will require 6 motors which will be prohibitively expensive for most enthusiasts.
At MFS, we know your wills and spent years developing our so called S3DOF technology with cockpitbuilders in mind.
3DOF technology is the best compromise when it comes to flight simulation application and budget but will require the use of 3 motors and an expensive “spring” placed underneath the motion platform.
Our idea was thus to remove these expensive parts and recreate on top of the pitch and roll axes, the so called “heave” axe. This took years to develop and is a combination of platform and software design (motion cues integrated trough washout filters in our highly effective motion software)
With this technology, MFS is able to combine the impact of turbulences, shear, accelerations, decelerations, gear bumps and so much more to the whole motion experience for instance which was never possible before using only two motors.
Tested and confirmed by real world flight instructors, our SEMI-3DOF system is THE system for the home building community, making motion accessible for any cockpit builder or simply flight simmer wanting a high level of reality in flight.
Our 3DOF system system offers full pitch and roll and has full heave so the extra flight dynamics (also added in this system) are impressive. S3DOF and 3DOF systems are a good compromise for flight simulation while remaining affordable.
