Abstract
The performance parameters influence the design of a Flight Motion Simulator (FMS) and affect its dynamic accuracies. A highly dynamic simulator needs low inertias and lightweight gimbals. This is counterproductive for a system with high position accuracies. A simulator with high position accuracy requires a stiff, rigid system with minimal deflections. Critical parameters that affect the FMS design are payload sizes, accuracies, and dynamic requirements.
