Fly the MaddogX MD-82 for MSFS Receives a New Update

The team behind the Fly the Maddog X MD-82 for Microsoft Flight Simulator has issued a new update for the high-fidelity aircraft.

The new update is mostly aimed at fixing a number of issues that were present in previous builds of the product. This includes issues with T/O trim on second flight legs, an issue with TO/GA that caused the FMS to behave incorrectly, and also issues when loading a saved flight. Further to the fixes, a number of additions were also made. This includes the ability to adjust the overhead speaker’s volume and a new WindowShades variable to the .ini file to allow users to adjust it accordingly.

You can grab the update from SIMMARKET and installing it will keep all of your previous settings. You can read more about the update on the Leonardo Softhouse forums.

For anyone who does not yet have a copy of Fly the Maddog X base pack for MSFS, you can get your copy from SIMMARKET for €75.00 (excluding taxes).
