In today’s video, I’m going to show you how you can build your own DIY Wind Simulator with variable fan speeds based off your in-sim speed! In this Part 1 video, I cover the hardware and software configuration and go for a test drive to see how well it works. In Part 2 I’ll refine the design with better fans (linked in the parts list below and finalize the installation in my sim rig).

A quick note on the fans. I’ve linked below to the fans I recommend (and have ordered for Part 2) based on their ability to provide maximum airflow and still fall within the maximum current tolerances of the Motor Shield. I’ve seen other people use Marine Blowers as fans. i do not recommend you do this unless you know what you’re doing as they exceed the current limits for the Motor Shield.
