For the past months, a major rework of the M20 Collection has been in the works. We have many exciting systems and general updates that we are excited to bring to the M20 Collection that we have discussed previously here. It may have seemed that news has been stagnant regarding this update, as we initially released a small public beta of the first iteration of v4 (See Note 1), that only contained some bug fixes. We are excited that this silence was due to us realizing that the M20 Collection deserved an even bigger update to keep it as one of the best GA Aircraft for X-Plane.

This update will feature a ton of new things, including:

We will be making intermittent public posts on our progress as well! If you are excited to follow the development of this update and benefit from our current pricing, now is a great time to add the M20 to your hangar! If you want to wait, that is fine too – The official release of v4 update will be ready later this year!
Note 1: If you are interested in joining the M20 Collection v4 Public Beta, simply join our discord AFM + TorqueSim and message me, Coop (#1019) your order number from either the AFM Store (FastSpring) or Threshold and I will get you added to the group.
Disclaimer: This update is still a work in progress: timelines, features, and other relevant parts of the aircraft are subject to change.
