The Sidewinder 5-DoF boasts 6 actuators, each delivering 150mm of travel to provide a completely immersive driving and flight simulation experience. The chassis construction of 40:80 extruded aluminium profile combines strength with stability, weighs less than 150kg, and can withstand vibrations and high levels of longitudinal and transverse forces found in the most demanding software. Utilising the telemetry tuning expertise of our partners at Sim Racing Studios and Thanos (Licence included), our users can deliver precisely tuned, game specific instructions over the most rugged terrain or the smoothest grand prix circuit.
The Sidewinder 5-DoF is capable of producing surge, heave, roll, pitch and rear-wheel traction-loss effects (yaw). It can deliver the subtle changes in racetrack surfaces - on and off the racing line, over the rumble strips and on to the marbles, yet the range of travel is ideal for flight and air combat simulators and extreme dirt track racing.
Upper Motion Platform
The Sidewinder 5-DoF uses four vertically mounted Scorpion Series actuators to produce fast, accurate heave, roll, and pitch effects. And a horizontally mounted actuator connected to a set of parallel slides to produce surge effects. The combined motion of these five actuators simulates the type of chassis movements a race car experiences during a race.
Middle and Lower Motion
The Sidewinder 5-DoF uses a rear actuator to produce the effect of rear-wheel traction loss. Capable of independent movement this, horizontally mounted actuator, can replicate the feeling of a car losing rear-traction during cornering or under heavy braking conditions.

Sidewinder 5-DoF uses industry-standard aluminium profile for maximum compatibility with cockpits on the market. As standard, Sidewinder Motion Simulators support most cockpits that use 40mm x 80mm, and 40mm x 160mm profile and accept chassis with a width of 580mm. Additionally, the Sidewinder Series can be customised to fit other chassis dimensions on request. Tested cockpits: Sim Lab P1-X.
