Laminar Research has released X-Plane 11.36 – the build is now final. According to the official release announcement:
X-Plane 11.36 is a minor patch that includes a pretty phenomenal improvement: bungee steering for the default Cessna 172. We worked with a few real world pilots on this change, and they confirm it truly captures the feel of steering a real C172 around an airport. The wheel can be steered through rudder linkage up to a small deflection angle, and by using differential brakes, the plane can turn tighter. You can try it for yourself because X-Plane 11.36 has been released for everyone!
