DOF Reality H2 Motion Review By The SRG
Barry Rowland of the Sim Racing Garage reviews the 2 Axis H2 motion platform by DOF Reality.
A full-motion simulator is probably the most desirable piece of kit on the wishlist of many hardcore sim racers in their everlasting search for more immersion. Brands such as SimXperience and CXC Simulations have revolutionized the design and introduced the personal seat mover Motion Racing Simulator to both the home user and professional.
Whilst no motion simulation system can be considered inexpensive, some brands offer a setup that is within a lower budget home user’s reach. One of those companies is DOF Reality.
DOF Reality H2 (2 Axis)
The DOF Reality H2 Consumer Motion simulator platform delivers two-dimensional movements (Pitch + Roll). The H2 model is designed to move not only the seat but, all simulator controls (steering wheel, joystick, pedals, throttles, etc.) mounted to the motion platform. When you move, everything moves!
The platform also delivers vibrating feedback to simulate road texture, gear changes, collisions and, contact via Buttkicker Bass shaker(s) or other add-ons.
It is very quiet especially compared to actuator-based platforms. You will hear only cooling fans at 20 dBA. It was designed with a minimum space requirement, ease of assembly and will pass through most door openings. It’s compact, yet powerful.
The DOF Reality H2 Motion chassis is available via the official website for US$ 1199.00 + shipping. ( Check out the official DOF Reality webpage for more info.)
