    Review: Mad Flight Studio - Spectr-Aero SP-30

    Being that the Spectr-Aero SP-30 is not the prettiest plane on the field, you might be tempted to not give it a look. But that would be a big mistake. Designer Mad Flight Studio has created what may well be the most detailed light aircraft ever made by X-Plane. It has the accurate flight model and 3D details you'd expect, but goes way beyond that with features that include aircraft maintenance, walk-around inspection, optional crop-dusting equipment and much more. You'll need to read Stuart McGregor's review to the end to learn about it all.
