Support & compatibility:

The A380 has been made to be used with FS9 only, but should be fairly compatible with FSX.

Feel free to post on our forums if you encounter an issue, but do not expect support to be provided.


-- dynamic wingflex with input from several new parameters including ground spoilers, fuel load, and angle of attack
-- control surface droop when the engines are off
-- independent parallel bogies when on the ground
-- custom tire rotation code
-- animated pack vents
-- idle-reverser animation
-- ground spoilers
-- smoothed gear and flap animations
-- customised nosewheel steering animation
-- accurate aileron LAF simulation
-- custom coded engine fan start-up and shutdown animations
-- windmilling engine fans (incl. fan inertia)
-- improved antenna hiding method--alpha no longer required, thereby avoiding the "fuse hole" issue in FSX SP2
-- animated window wipers
-- animated probe sensors
-- hard coded "double strobes"
