Update! MSFS2020 - Diamond DA40 NGX Improvements Mods - V.0.7.7

Performance and UX fixes to the DA40 to match the real thing

                  Version 0.7.7

                  • Added "1000 tone" and "minimums" sound effect by Positive Zero (thanks Zeke12587 for showing me that)
                  • Temperatures will increase as engine is overloaded.
                  • Sharpened autopilot a little
                  • Reduced power draw on all electrics.

                  Version 0.7.6

                  • New camera angles.
                  • Lowered starting torque
                  • Tweaked ground effect
                  • Flap indications properly show when flaps are transitioning


                  • Revert the flap lift fix for the bug that was now fixed...


                  • Hotfix for world 3 update
                  • Flap lift scalar halved

                  Version 0.7.5


                  • Fadec controls Torque and not directly power. Less overshooting and smoother control.
                  • Under -10°C the engine becomes Torque limited. Max power ~98%
                  • Run-up RPM fixed
                  • ECU Test behavior improved.
                  • ECU run-up no longer moves the throttle lever(thanks Abdullah), and moving it above 5% will cancel the runnup
                  • Tool tips for ECU test added and removed incorrect throttle % indication.
                  • ECU voters are inop, because you guys cant stop playing around
                  • Engine will sputter when overloaded for too long and if the fuel is too cold (-42°C)
                  • ECUs will fail when the engine is failed.
                  • Inverted flight will cause oil and fuel starvation
                  • Fuel temperature is simulated using simplified physics
                  • - Lower fuel quanitiy will cause higher fuel temps.
                  • - Transfering fuel will cause temperatures to equalise


                  • Increased adverse yaw
                  • Increased ailerson effectiveness
                  • Increased control athourity all around.

                  • Low power cruise speeds are more accurate
                  • Landing flaps more draggy, approach is better


                  • ELT resets fuel totaliser
                  • Fuel totaliser stops counting when unlimted fuel is selected

                  • Autopilot no longer controls rudder (yes it did that)
                  • Removed ground tug

                  Version 0.7

                  • FADEC added with combustion extinction (not active on the ground)

                  • Removed fuel totaliser softkeys to avoid confusion
                  • Fuel totaliser behaves like an actual fuel totaliser. Turn the plane off to reset it (no softkeys to do so sadly :'( )
