One of the best, if not the best, aircraft add-ons for P3Dv4!. And the first one to offer PBR textures.

Excellent news!.

Cheers, Ed

You can also download just the update or the full installer from the Maddog forums. You just have to be registered. I did the update only and it works great.

Yeah now in the Forums problem is the downloader they have. Wait in line for x minutes or create an account with MEGA. Ridiculous.

Did they apply PBR textures to the cockpit too or is it just liveries?

On the post they talked about PBR for the VC as well (reflexion on the fms) i think

I just picked up the Maddog yesterday, so I'm a relative noob when it comes to Leonardo products. Do we need to re-download the full installer from Simmarket and is best practice to uninstall then reinstall, or can we update over top. Thanks all.

Nevermind, I have my answer on the Maddog forums. Probably should have checked there first...oops.

I wonder if the fms is the only pbr item. I would assume it wouldn't be but either way. Will still be cool to see.

Seeing they keep on improving an already very good looking product I am tempted to give myself a nice little Xmas present.

As they have no place for me to ask on their own forums prior to purchase (which is sad), I want to try good old avsim to get the answers to my questions. Thanks in advance.

# Is it possible to use separate axis for tiller and rudder like in other study level addons (FSL A320 or Majestic Q400 are the only ones I know who did it right)?

# Does loading / importing PFPX flightplans into the FMC work?

# What is your experience with the default modules for the MD-82 of PFPX and TOPCAT? Are they good enough? Are there better ones available?

# Is it possible to create customized panel states which are automatically loaded with the aircraft (like it is nicely done with PMDG aircraft)? I have seen in reviews there are three default states but that's not what I mean.

# How is performance compared to PMDG NGX and FSL A320?

Lastly, what is (in your opinion) the main point of critique about this addon? I ask this because I want to avoid buying an addon which in the end I will not use. At the moment, I exclusively fly the FSL A320/A319, because for me personally, this is the pinnacle of desktop flightsimming. I feel the Leonardo Maddog is close or equal in most regards and even above in others (visuals).

Thanks again and merry christmas to all of you.

Hi Nils,

1) Not that I know of 

2) Don’t think so, I always enter manually.

3) Topcat works good, I use it, for a flex temp.

4) Yes, you start with let’s say the default C&D, set the aircraft as you like, then change the new saved panel state by renaming it to C&D. The new C&D will be how you like it. You cannot save states in the FMC.

5)Performance is great around the same as the NG.

I only fly this aircraft 1 to every 10 times I fly the A319/NG, so wait to see what other answers you get am not a expert unlike the NG/A319 that I know very well.

I agree the FSL 319 is the pinnacle of all.

Oh no! 😭 Actually I don't want to go back to addons that don't offer realistic flight control setups.

So you can save panel states via P3D menu but not in the FMC? That's okay, as I would do it only once anyway.

Thanks David!

With the latest PFPX update I was able to export a flightplan that was accepted by the Maddog.  This wasn’t the case previously.

I have a steering tiller assigned to another axis on my HOTAS via FSUIPC and it works fine.

The profile I use for PFPX is highly accurate. I'm not sure if it's default or one from another developer.  I can try to figure it out but I'll have to get on my desktop Todo it.

Aircraft performance is comparable if not better than the NGX.  Visuals are very good as well.

Thanks Dave, good to know. What profile are you using?

For the export I used the "Leonardo SH MD82 2008/2010 (P3D)" export option.

Thanks. And you can move the rudder without turning the nose wheel?

You should just cut and paste the code in the forums for Mega download. You dont need to create an account for Mega
