This was no easy feat either, since the new version of X-Plane has some amazing features but it also forced developers to work extra hard to get everything to work.
Nonetheless, JRX delivered, as promised and their Bo-105 is now available, so that’s great news. If you already own the X-Plane 11 you’ll also be happy to know that this update is free of charge! Win!
And for now, I will let the features list do all the talking (and the screenshots as well), but you can check out our review of the X-Plane 11 version meanwhile.
