MSFS: Spitfire Update 1.0.3 Hotfix 2 Now Available!

G'day everyone!

Our latest Spitfire L.F Mk IXc update for MSFS is now available!

Hotfix 2 includes various Flight Model fixes and improvements, XML fixes & other general file fixes.

  • Fixes adverse SU5 impacts to the flight model
  • Accurate zero-drag coefficient (factory data) ... translates into correct top speeds
  • Improved drag on flaps as well as gear
  • Induced drag tuned
  • CG completely redone using factory data
  • Pilot weight now 215 lb (170lb pilot + parachute + dinghy)
  • Verified and tuned stall speeds (full tanks with clean and landing configs)
  • Tuned p-factor / torque for a natural takeoff that can match the original POH (full right rudder trim, 1 notch down with boost 9 or no trim at a more gentle boost)
  • Fine tuned roll rates at various speeds
  • Tuned turn rate
  • Adjusted elevator setup based on pilot requires a tiny bit of DOWN trim to fly straight. Also take off with 1 notch DOWN trim, as per POH. This makes it easier to lift the tail around 50-60mph.
  • Elevator trim much easier and more stable during flight.
  • Engine and propeller adjustments to counter for a bug/change in SU5 that handicaps the RPM authority at altitude


Hotfix 2 comes with all necessary files for the aircraft. Be sure to remove the flyingiron-spitfire folder from your Community folder, then add the new Hotfix 2 flyingiron-spitfire folder.
