Large motion platform movement limitations

All of the FrightProps Motion Platforms are designed to move up & down as well as tilt to the left & right..  Some sizes also allow forward & backward tilt.

Once the motion platform goes beyond a certain size (about > 5' x 5') the forward & backward tilt is not possible.  This is because small platforms only require four air bags (one on each corner) .  Once the platform design goes beyond four air bags we lose the ability to tilt forward &  backward.  The diagrams provide a simplified explanation for this limitation.

We find that up & down movement only is the best choice overall for a safer, more maintenance free solution.  Elevator type simulators should always go only up & down only because that's how elevators move in real life!
