And this is the part that is not explained well in the Kickstarter. The 6dof extension board is only needed if you are running VFDs/AC motors. For all DC motor 6DOF simulators, just the basic 55$ board will be sufficient as was explained by Thanos.
I grabbed one of these boards so I don't have to deal with 3/6 Arduinos.
