We reported last Friday that Leonardo Software was planning to release their open beta last weekend, and while it was a day late, the beta did indeed release. I updated my original post with this information, but since the post was quickly buried by our other content, I thought it’d be a good idea to make sure everyone knows about the release.
There have been a few changes to the changelog from 1.2b254, mainly the fine tuning of the ground effect, more FMS fixes, and a revised engine spool-up time. The full changelog is below for those interested.
The beta is available from the FlytheMaddog forums and can be downloaded only from validated accounts. Happy flying, and bear in mind that this is an open beta, so it’s almost guaranteed that there’ll be a few bugs to iron out before it releases to the masses in a stable update.
