I own a cabled VP2, and I can also run a second cable eventually. Could it be a nice idea to buy a DFARS kit and then power the motor from the console cable or from a dedicated power supply? Did someone do it? I suppose the motor runs on about 3 volts, and if I discover how much current if draws, I can see if it is feasible to power it from the same power that runs the SIM, given some diodes in series to reduce it from 5 to 3 volts.
Yes, I use a cabled VP2 with a daytime FARS that is powered 24/7 by a Radio Shack wall-wart.
I would not personally want to power it from the console.
