To be fair, nobody "needs" a motion platform but it is one of those rare products for men** that delivers unlimited fun and excitement day after day whatever your age. None of our many customers has ever reverted to a static or 3DOF rig as far as we know. Not everyone has the means, skill, bravery, physical capacity or time to drive on the edge with real cars but advances in software and hardware means the thrill can now be delivered to your home, day or night, whatever the weather is doing outside.
A 5DOF system is already a wonderful enhancement to a sim racer / pilot. Road textures, track contours and general terrain are completely absent from a static setup, although some aids exist – DD wheels, sonic transducers and active belt tensioners like the TensionR do fill a gap, but in our experience, nobody that has tested our motion systems has ever left thinking they would be better off with less. Adding front traction loss and a moving central pivot delivers enhanced levels of feedback in terms of tyre performance and general racing pleasure. Front TL also delivers a more realistic flight simulation, especially in combat aircraft, enabling the pilot to point the nose in the direction of travel rather than letting the tail do all the steering. We would recommend this platform for rally driving over paved circuits, however, our customers are thrilled with both.
We have been able to develop the LowSlider with an emphasis on both form and function. It has an hourglass figure and looks stunning in any setting. No sacrifice in performance has been made in designing such an elegant machine. At the end of this process, we made a conscious decision about the pricing of our new product. Looking at the market for high end sim platforms, these things can be ridiculously expensive and yet deliver little more than haptic feedback. Our actuators can be dialled down to 50mm of travel or up to 250mm* with ease. There is no need to compromise and the PT-Actuator components we use sacrifice nothing in terms of responsiveness, or haptics but they can send you sideways on a banked circuit or point you skyward in a fighter jet if that's your wish. We don't use a distributor network and recently discovered it is cheaper to ship our products from the UK to California than from Canada. (£725 versus £3,200)
*or 200mm if that's the spec
** we reserve the right to change this, the first lady customer we get.
