The Leonardo Softhouse Fly The Maddog X for Prepar3D is without doubt one of the best aircraft for the platform and it was exciting to learn it is coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator. With a complex aircraft such as the MD-80 coming to the simulator, seeing any new previews is an exciting moment. So to see the team release a minute teaser of an engine startup had us chomping at the bit.
The minute video is just a short glimpse into what we can expect from the aircraft. The video has a few pans of the cockpit and interacting with various switches and knobs as the engines on the bird get started. We can see how the displays react during the transfer of power and how systems are implemented into the aircraft already. All of this in stunning 4K on YouTube.
There are already some previews of the aircraft in Microsoft Flight Simulator, but this is the first video we’ve seen of the aircraft in action. We’ll be following development very closely and can’t wait to share more with you in the future.
