Aircraft developers Colimata has updated their Concorde FXP to version 1.50. The newly released beta version adds a large number of changes to the product to improve it beyond the initial release back in 2019.
The most substantial change to the aircraft has been with the new “experimental” flight model included with the update. The new dynamics mean there is a more realistic timeframe during the take-off run and improved transition to the higher Mach speeds and how the aircraft transitions through them. In addition, the hydraulic, electrical and fuel panels have been improved along with how the engine fire detection and suppression system works.
A full changelog is provided and a detailed PDF document highlighting the changes has been supplied.
To install v1.50, you will need to download the zip folder and install over a clean version of the aircraft. Remember that v1.50 is a beta.
If you don’t own the Colimata Concorde FXP, then you can buy it from the X-Plane.org store for $49.95.
