Can anyone point me toward info/advice/comment about using a brushless motor and esc for a SimHub wind sim?

 

Thanks!

Search for blogs or guides written by sim racing enthusiasts who have documented their experiences with DIY wind simulations. They might fnaf detail their setups, including the use of brushless motors and ESCs.

Getting knowledge and guidance from reliable sources is beneficial when using a brushless motor and ESC (Electronic Speed Controller) for a SimHub wind simulator. Here are a place where you may learn more about this subject and get guidance:

Online Communities and Forums: Participate in online communities or connections puzzle for SimHub, wind simulation, or DIY motion platforms. Projects for wind simulation are frequently discussed in posts or sections on forums like the SimHub Community Forum, the simracing subreddit, or specific sim racing forums. You can consult seasoned users who have already used brushless motors and ESCs in their setups to ask questions, discuss ideas, and get advice.

Did you get anywhere with this ESC via SIMHUB?

 

Interested to know. Would be great if SIMHUB supported SERVO output which is what is required to make it work. I edited in Arduino editor the SHShakeitPWMFans.h and added #include <ServoTimer2.h> and instead of outputting PWM i scaled the value and outputted to the SERVO's. I tested with a SERVO and it moved accurately with the speed, then I replced this with a brushless ESC, tuning values to ensure startup and maxc speed etc. I then added ducted fans to blow me away when driving, they are powered by a big PC PSU that can handle the 20Amps each at 12V.

I can probably attached the modified SHShakeitPWMNFans.h, but not sure if that will work first time on it's own, honestly I did this over a year ago and can't remember exactly if any other files are needed to be modified. All I know is that I got it to work.

 

Simhuib supporting a SERVO output would be easy to do, just another option under the PWM Fans/Shake it stuff.

Cheers
