I've only seen the GS-5 used with a motion simulator. Can you use it on its own?
Maybe a little late, just saw your question. First, I don’t work for SimXperience but I own the seat.
As far as just sitting it on the floor, I wouldn’t. The boxes containing the motors you see on the back in the pictures are also on the bottom, so it’s not a level surface. The boxes extended approximately 2.5 to 3 inches off the bottom of the seat in the same pattern as you see on the back. I use a popular 80/20 rig and have about a 12 inch clearance to the floor. While you don’t need that much clearance, I’d give yourself at least 6 inches to avoid damage to the boxes and cables and to be able to comfortably reach underneath.
You can still achieve this with a DIY wooden frame if it’s stable. The seat is quite heavy and even just getting in and out of it might cuase the seat to wobble if not firmly attached to something. Hope this helps.
Yes. All of our products work well standalone.
You can think of each component like an instrument in an orchestra. They all sound great individually but make something truly incredible when combined.
My current setup consists of a cheap rocker seat sitting on top of a self-built wooden frame so it doesn't tilt back all the way and a G27 mounted to a Wheel Stand Pro. Does the GS-5 need to be mounted to a frame or can I place it directly on the floor? If it needs to be mounted, what's the minimum frame I can use while still keeping my wheel stand pro?
