I see that you have W10
Any issue with the updates or you managed to block them?

Updates use to be a problem and I blocked them until a fairly recent large update unblocked them.

I haven’t had any issues recently with updates.

Hi David,

Truly awe inspiring !!!

I wanted to build a complete set up like this but didn't think I had the room and you seem to have fit it into the same amount of room I put my Jetmax !

I think I may look to build something like you have in a few years, however you make it look so simple and I know its not !

Great Job and thanks for posting the video !!!

All the best
Frank

David,
I really enjoy your videos,

May I ask the maker of your monitor stands ?
I am looking to replace my 3 27 in monitors with hopefully 60 inch screens and your stands look very sturdy.

Thanks,
Jimmy Mac

Thanks Jimmy.

This is the strand https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00RH ... UTF8&psc=1

However, to get the screens closer to the cockpit, I reversed them and machined some longer legs (as they were half on and half offmy platform) then used strap downs to ensure they don’t topple over.

Regards

David
