Now one who bought it. Took this image right after getting the package. I think I will need to post an individual thread saying how awesome it is.
You mean you want to buy the GS-5 from Henk? Then you have to ask in a private message, but I bet Henk won't sell it, like he mentioned in his review:Hey @HoiHman just wondering what was the cost of the GS-5 door to door? I’m considering picking one up now that I’ve completed my HT room.
Also how does the size compare to a normal bucket seat, I’m using a Sparco Rev II at the moment which feel great fit wise but the GS-5 looks a lot bigger?
The key to damping cameras on drones is that they have a known frequency range that the motors run and they can specifically dampen for that, however a drone that is filming is not being jerked around. They tend to be flown very smoothly with the gimbals maintaining line of site with the target.As for the dampening for the monitor.
A display could already be vibrating causing potential blurring, the point of the isolation/dampening is not to add extra wobble as you mention but to stabilize the monitor. The same principle is used on cameras for drones etc.
Some people will not even attach monitors to motion rigs to avoid the extra issues/problems it may bring. I suppose that is down to personal preferences too or concerns over the display for any advantages it may bring if mounted to being static.The key to damping cameras on drones is that they have a known frequency range that the motors run and they can specifically dampen for that, however a drone that is filming is not being jerked around.

Dampening a monitor for an SFX-100 would much be trickier because the of the weight of the monitor and the variation of the signals going into it. Using various durometer Sorbothane or rubber pads in the mounting would be tricky and need to be one step removed from the fragile monitor mount points. This would mean an entire rigid cage would need to be attached to the monitor and that cage would need to be dampened. The only thing I could think of that might work well would be a fluid based dampener like used on a mountain bike. My bike has a system that senses impulses and dampens out the sharp impulses but maintains pressure for slower pedal strokes so as not to lose energy. In this way the monitor would shake less for vibrations, but hold tight for slower larger surges.
I think his rigid mount and large supporting structure is likely the best solution without major expense and engineering time to optimize a solution for his use. By the time he had completed a dampened solution, there would be added weight and potentially bulk making ease of attachment/detachment more painful.
No offense taken, mate. I thought I was at a place of settling down and focusing on driving months ago when I bought two wheels from Henk. Now he updated his show case, makes me want to burn cash again.... which is usually not a good thing.Please don't take my comment as disrespectful. I've love to see the results of passion.
