Leonardo has released a status update for the upcoming. FlythemaddogX.
The package will simulate the McDonnel Douglas MD-82 with the JT8D-217/A engine option and EFIS + FMS cockpit configuration in the ‘pink’ background.
According to the developer: “There are no plans to make the rest of the series (-81/-83/-87/-88 or -90) or an analogue version, neither to have the blue background variant or other powerplants.”
Shared Cockpit won’t be present in the initial release, the EFIS + PMS (Canadian Marconi) configuration needs to be added first. This will be done with SP1 in the next few months upon release. SP1 will be free of charge. Shared Cockpit will follow with SP2, also free of charge.
WX radar is both compatible with Active Sky and REX Advantage, with Active Sky. A basic ACARS data link will be available via the FMS. The team is currently evaluating similar capability with REX Skyforce WX engine.
FlythemaddogX will be compatible with GSX; FS2Crew and, AIRAC 1801 navdata from Navigraph. Part of the documentation will be available before release to let you evaluate the product.
At the time of writing, there is no released date or pricing information available.
