In an announcement on their Facebook page, Carenado has updated their twin prop King Air B200 to version 1.1 for X-Plane 11.

As X-Plane 11 is now on build 11.30, Carenado has been busy updating their aircraft to take advantage of the vast array of features available to them.

Flight dynamics have been adapted to work with X-Plane’s latest physics fixes with notable changes to the landing gear, flaps, cruise speeds and fuselage drag. To coincide with these fixes, changes have also been made to the trim, prop feathering, the centre of gravity balance and rudder improvements.

Other interesting fixes include improvements to the VR configuration making click spots less obstructive on the yoke in particular.

For extra realism, a new exhaust blur effect has been added using a new particle system.

The full changelog can be found below.

I'm an active flight simulation enthusiast with over 20 years experience and still enjoy it as much as ever. As a Lincolnshire lad, I was born at RAF Nocton Hall and spent my childhood at RAF Scampton dreaming of being a pilot. So I like to think that aviation is well and truly in my blood. I also enjoy iRacing and I am a very proud former iRacing Indy 500 winner! (I tell everybody this). My other hobbies include magic and playing the guitar pretty badly.
