What's your normal IF setup?

My setup

  • iPad Pro 2020 (256GB Wi-Fi Only - Space Grey):
  • MacBook Pro 2020 (M1 - 16GB RAM / 512GB SSD - Space Grey):
    Simbrief for Flight Planning and Navigraph Charts for Charts and Procedures
  • iPhone 11 Pro (64GB - Space Grey):
    LiveFlight tracking (mostly if I’m out)!
  • Coffee Table (any extra space):
    Food and beverages, Beer or a Glass of Wine perhaps (of course if I’m not driving for the rest of the day)! 😂

ignore my terrible cable management

Wow that’s cool.
Mine is my ipad (9th gen) that can heat my whole house when not in low graphics and my phone (iphone 11) for flightradar to be minimally realistic

2021 Mac book pro m1 and I pad 9th gen

In order of which I go to first;

2019 HP Pavilion 15 CS3xxx + joystick + second display (especially this season when it gets warm, the built-in fan helps with thermals)

2021 iPad Pro 11"

and as a reserve device in case both of the above are unavailable, an 2016 iPad Pro 9.7"

My typical setup:

-iPad 9th gen

-Dell computer for Map Connect

-iPhone for SimBrief/Flight Tracking

Mine is an iPad Air 5th gen plain and simple

Please everyone use at least the real SimBrief(not the InfiniteFlight one) and please do your step-climb, life will be way better for everyone.

What type of cable we need a tut

I use a USB-C docking station to connect my iPad to the docking station and then the docking station to the monitor with an HDMI cable.

I don’t use it for IF but it works.

My setup:

1st gen iPad Pro 12.9inch (for Infinite flight)

Semiconductor cooling fan for iPad to not overheat

M2 MacBook Air (for charts, flight planning and tracking)

30W charger

I have a very simple (per say) IF setup

  • iPad Pro 11inch (4th generation) [For Flying]

  • iPhone 13 Pro (mostly for tracking my flights when I’m away)

  • Acer Nitro 5 Gaming laptop (for flight charts, Simbrief, flight tracker, etc)

  • Monitor (projecting my laptop screen)

I mostly use Simbrief (free version sadly) for flight routes and calculating the weight and balance, fuel, estimated flight time, etc.

I use either InfiniteX or Liveflightapp for tracking on the computer and Infinite Info for tracking on my phone.

I try to fly as realistic as possible in IF, always loved the immersion of flight charts and following real life ATIS

Usually I fly with just my iPad Pro.
When I have more time, and for testing purposes, this is what I’m using.
Not everything is in this picture and more gear is on the way.

iOS Devices:
- Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2021 - 5th gen / M1)
- Apple iPad Pro 10.5 (2017)
- Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2015 - 1st gen)
Android Devices:
- Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra (2023)
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra (2022)
- Samsung Galaxy S10+ (2019)
Other Equipment:
- Thrustmaster HOTAS X
- Thrustmaster TCA Boeing Yoke & Throttle Quadrant
- Thrustmaster T.Flight Rudder Pedals
- Raspberry Pi & IFJoystickPi
- Turtle Beach VelocityOne Flightstick (is on its way)

So my setup is very good imo

2x Monitors

2x phone (Iphone 13 and Samsung S22
Milion charts and checklists in my Monitors(i use Navigraph and Simbrief)

I have my iPad next to my bed and an office chair 😀
