Fly the Maddog X Christmas Update

A new update for Leonardo Softhouse’s Fly the Maddog X on Microsoft Flight Simulator has been released, with the latest build for the MD-82 base pack and MD-83/88 expansion pack now listed as 1.2b179.

A number of issues have been fixed in this update, with the development team bringing updates to the VC seat position, repeating sounds, and some display-related bugs.

Other updates have been brought to the Maddog with the team adding Aircraft Options settings in the EFB app, altering the fuel heater cooling rate, and improving the aircraft’s idle taxing behaviour.
