    HEXaDRIVE® Hover

    The HEXaDRIVE® HOVER system has an inverted cabin design, the roof of the cabin is at the same time the upper frame of the motion platform. This enables a cabin entrance almost at ground level. So the travel of the motion platform can get enlarged within the existing buildings and the driver gets close to the centre of tilting of the platform. All these advantages lead to a more realistic simulation.
