Leonardo Softhouse has continued to freely update their Fly the Maddog X (64-bit edition) with a brand new update that adds support for Prepar3D v5.1, along adding new features and functionality to the ever-improving and impressive aircraft Version 1.7b753, now available to download for owners of the aircraft.

As for the changes, Leonardo Softhouse has optimised the aircraft for Prepar3D v5.1, meaning that elements such as the PBR and metallic reflections work with the Enhanced Atmospheric effects within the simulator. In addition, the airport has brand new support for Pushover, Aviaserver EFB and new additional parameters for the zero fuel weight in the OFP. The aircraft has also seen fixes to the core code that resolves issues with the VNAV, the battery usage when the EFB is off and also fine-tuning to the flight dynamics and reverse thrust. The changes are available for both the Prepar3D v4.4+ version and the Prepar3D v5+ version.

The update can be download from the forums and installed over your current installation. It can also be downloaded from simMarket.

The Leonardo Softhouse Fly the Maddog X is one of our favourite aircraft for the simulator and we’re also giving you the chance to win your very own copy.

If you can’t wait and want to get your hands on the product, you can do so via simMarket where it’s available for €95.00.

>>>>[NEW]
*AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS*
– Added P3D v5.1 support;
*GRAPHICS*
– Optimizations for supporting v5.1 Ehnanced Atmosphere (PBR and metallic reflections);
*EFFECTS*
– Fx tuning for P3D v5.1HF1;
*MISC*
– Added Pushover support;
– Added Aviaserver EFB and PMS support;
– Added optional param ZFW= in OFP (PAX= and CARGO= must not be present if ZFW= is used). EFB calculates pax number and cargo load to match the entered ZFW;
– Removed green arc from ND in Canadian/PMS configuration;

>>>>[FIXED]
*AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS*
– Improved core code;
– Changed ‘direct to’ logic to recompute an idle descent profile when a DCT is made above any waypoint constraint;
– Fixed issue that caused engine failure due to wrong estimate of maximum egt for the selected TRP mode and ART status;
– Fixed issue in VNAV which prevented the aircraft starting descent after passing TOD, if both TOC and TOD where in the same leg;
– No battery drain when the EFB is switched OFF;
– Reverse thrust and flight dynamics fine tuning;
– Removed green arc from ND in Canadian/PMS configuration;
*LOAD MANAGER*
– “Refueled aircraft” and “Automatic update aircraft weight and CG” now separated from the “Realistic mode”;
