    What's going on guys? I've searched around for an answer to this question that I have been wondering but can not seem to find an answer. I know this is probably a pretty repetitive topic but I have a new question that I haven't seen asked before. So sitting at 8 feet away from the FALANT how big (or small) do the 2 dots look? I take it thursday as a practice and I was just wondering how big they seem to be.

    Thanks,
    Robbie

    They will be small pinpricks of light. Unless you have a major color deficiency, you shouldn't struggle on the test.

    Like half an inch? 1/4 an inch? If possible, try and give me your best guess possible. I have had no problems with colors my entire life. I can see the difference in color lights on plane wings pretty easily.

    Thanks,
    Robbie

    If you've never had a color issue or failed any color test, quit worrying. The FL is designed to be easier than them. And no, try a couple millimeters. Knowing that isn't going to help you practice or prepare for it. It's just two vertical lights flashed at you. Random combinations of red, green, and white. 9/9 to pass.
