FSA Member Poll Results

Last week, we asked:

How many total screens/monitors do you use in your flight simulation setup? Submitted by George W.


The results show...

Distribution was relatively even, with 26% of respondents using 1 or 2 monitors, 34% using 3 monitors, and about 5% using 4, 5, or 6+ monitors in their flight simulation setup.
