This seems like as good a place as any to show off my current project.

There is still plenty of work to do but It's flyable. Next on the to do list is to install some slide bearings and actuators for my keyboard and joystick mounts. This will be controlled via Arduino so that when i sit down everything will slide to me and adjust to the perfect spot.

The best part is that almost all of the materials I have used so far, were either dug out of a dumpster, or given to me. The chair for example was out of a friends wrecked mustang. I did buy most of the electronics and a box of screws. Because i live in a rent house, I designed it to easily come apart in case I need to move. Most of the panels have latches and just unplug like Legos. Eventually, once the roll cage and other interior gets finished, I plan to build an outer shell out of fiberglass and 3d printed bits.

If there is any interest, I'll use this thread to post future updates as well.
