Leonardo Softhouse Fly the Maddog X Updated for MSFS

A new update for Leonardo Softhouse’s Fly the Maddog X on Microsoft Flight Simulator has been released. The new update primarily focuses on fixes, but a new feature is an all-new head up flight display system (HFDS).

The number of fixes for the aircraft are also pretty extensive, many of which were initially reported by the community. Issues with the EFB such as the service app now showing correct fuel loads have been fixed, along with an issue on the performance pages. Furthermore, a few texture artifacts have also been fixed.

As mentioned, there is now a new optional Head up Flight Display System (HFDS). There is also accompanying documentation to help get familiar with the new feature in the MD-82 series of aircraft.

The new builds are applicable to the -82, and – 83/-88 packages released by Leonardo Softhouse. You will need to download the installer from SIMMARKET again and rerun it in order to install the new updates.

You can pick up the base pack from SIMMARKET for €75.00 if you haven’t already done so.
