      Important 1 :

      Please use MODEN FLIGHT MODEL for my improved autopilot control model.

      If you don't use autopilot and flying VFR only, you don't need to change this options.

      You can check and change your flight model settings in OPTIONS - GENERALS - FLIGHT MODELS.

      Important 2 : 

      Please delete my previous 747-8i mod.

      The name of my previous 747-8i mod folders are started with ' KAiRi ' word.

      Important 3 : 

      I do not recommened to use another mod what related with 747-8i's FLIGHT CHARACTERISTICS.

      Poor or Bad flight model or scripted attitude behavior can corrupted my autopilot control model's calculation (it is automatic calculation, not a scripted.)

      V.0.67 :

       - (Improvement) Additional autopilot accuracy and response, plus airplane stability (Nov 06. 2020)

      - (Adjustment) Flight chracteristics what related with longitudinal stability and attitude is adjusted

      - (Adjustment) Fuel consumption what related ferry range is adjusted. Now It almost matched for real-life data.

      - (Recalculated) Thrust Specific Fuel Consumption parameter is recalculated.

      - (Added) aircraft.cfg files added in MOD folder

      - (Added) small texture added for identify this MOD installation. 

      Now you can see the different words on the white sticker which is located on the left front side of cockpit windshield

      - (Changed) MOD folder name changed because of my 747-8i improvement states and progress was changed.
