      Roll, pitch, and yaw dampening removed

      Improved CL table

      Added “Engine fire” and “Low Fuel Pressure” CAS callouts

      reduced the Cooling compared to the DA40 due to higher airspeeds.

      Drag and drop "DA62X" into the community folder

      If you see the thumbnail in game, you have installed it correctly

      Install G100 Mode
