Leonardo Softhouse Releases Maddog X Instructor Panel

259599 Aircraft

Developer Leonardo Softhouse has released their MaddogX Instructor Panel for use with the Fly the Maddog X for Prepar3D v4 and v5. The Instructor Panel adds numerous options that is found in real-motion simulators that adds training scenarios for simmers to easily practice specific conditions with the Fly the Maddog X.

With the new Instructor Panel, you will be able to add emergency scenarios, position your aircraft anywhere in the simulator and even inject specific weather conditions to the simulator. Even if you start the flight with normal conditions, you can trigger all of the modelled failures and INOP systems found in the Fly the Maddog X.

This expansion for the aircraft product will add both normal and abnormal scenarios for use in the simulator. You can connect to your aircraft either locally or in a Shared Cockpit environment to execute realistic training sessions. For example, one person could be piloting the aircraft, whilst the other takes on the role of instructor to throw all kinds of challenges in the way of the pilot.

The newly released expansion pack extends the original Fly the Maddog X even further. You can buy it now from simMarket for €25.00.
