Owners will be e-mailed by whomever they purchased their Majestic Q400 from with details and a link to download the new version (it's not available from Majestic directly, they push it out to their distributors), SimMarket and JustFlight already have the update available.

It's a complete 472mb installer, so remember to backup your aircraft.cfg file before installing the update, so you can restore all your addon repaint textures for it (this can be found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\mjc8q400). Oh and don't be a spanner like me and forget to back up the mjc84.ini (which is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\mjc8q400\ini) otherwise you will have to recalibrate the controls!
