Fly the Maddog X - addon for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.

Fly the Maddog X is one of the most sophisticated and complex add-on ever developed for the MD-82, built after the McDonnel Douglas MD-80 series.

Fly the Maddog X features advanced, study level aircraft systems that cannot be matched by any standard aircraft; it can be flown by following the operations manual of the real aircraft. We even encourage you to use such documentation to experience the level of detail that has been accomplished with this aircraft. Fly the Maddog X also features the undocumented intriguing details that real pilots experience when flying the real aircraft.
 

NOTE: If you also own Fly The Maddog X for Prepar3D v4-v5 it should be updated to the latest version in order to work properly side-by-side the MSFS version.

I've flown in the jumpseat on MD-80s many times. Flying this Maddogg in VR really feels like being in the real thing! The level of detail and systems modeling is outstanding. I only give it three stars because it takes 15-20 minutes to load on my computer. Nearly every other third party plane I've purchased for MSFS loads in 1-2 minutes. This really discourages me from flying it regularly.

Pricey, but truly an unparalleled experience in flight simulation. Loving every minute of flying the Maddog.

I love this aircraft very much! One of my favs in the sim!! 0 complaints besides, I can't understand why the lights aren't shining very far from the aircraft. I have noticed all of the exterior lighting have their own individual radius at which a light disappears and only the illumination can be seen on the ground but not the lights themselves.

I tested other aircraft and they don't have the same problem so I have successfully isolated the issue.

Having fun flying the aircraft and hope someone can look into this from Leonardo.

Maybe it just needs to be a little brighter on the intensity side of things...

Thanks a lot!! Amazing plane!!! 5 stars!!! :)

Amazing plane. Even tho I was originally not that much interested in this type of plane,
I finally succumbed to the ton of recommendations of this and got it, and I'm more than satisfied with it. Amir already said it best in his review "this plane has a soul, I love it, absolutely love it" I can really sign under that.

One aircraft you must not be without in MSFS2020 or any sim for that matter. But the work here brought to this next level /Gen-Simulator...incredible!!!!!

This is a very atmospheric aircraft my favourite so far. It may noy be modelled and textured to the level of some of the recent releases but what they have done works 100%. Can't admit to being happy about the price and hope that they don't shaft us early adopters by dropping it in line with the competition. The actual MD80 aircraft has to be an all time classic, the cockpit is beautiful.

An excellent addition to MSFS although the textures feel dated compared to other aircraft for the sim.

Systems depth is great, no question. But there are some things lacking compared to other addons, and for this price, they should be addressed.

Textures in the cockpit and around the exterior of the aircraft feel dated. After seeing how beautiful some MSFS can be, this aircraft just doesn't hold up to some of the better PBR textures I've seen.

The flight model feels extremely heavy and it's hard to manually pilot the aircraft. The delay between when you make an input and when the aircraft responds is slower that even the largest aircraft in the sim. I can imagine this being true for the AN-225, but for and MD-82 this seems a bit exaggerated.

The last and biggest complaint I have is the archaic method of installed liveries and changing options on the aircraft. It's done outside the program, but you still have to search through forums and manually install any liveries. The process just feels old.

Normally this would all be minor stuff, but again, for THE most expensive aircraft in MSFS atm, this addon needs to do everything better, and it doesn't.

Absolutely fantastic! This... this plane has a soul, I love it, absolutely love it.
Sounds are fine as they are FTsim sound is very unrealistic and loud.
Hopefully they'll record sounds for different zones though so we can hear the engine louder for example for when we walk to the back of the cabin.
Anyway, this is a fantastic addon, just lovely.
True high fidelity.

Started cold and dark, after a short loop at Washington Dulles, landing without a hiccup all in manual mode, this bird is a gem to fly. I use a Honeycomb Throttle and Precision Flight Control Yolk. Don't complain about the price, the textures are great, looking at YouTube videos does not do this product justice, I fly in 2k graphics. Complaints about handling typically come from not reading the included manuals which in this case are extensive, this is a study level plane, I have over 1,500 hours in the Prepar3d version and graphics in this version are leaps and bounds ahead of Prepar3d. Many thanks to Leonardo and everyone associated with getting this product to market.
