F-35 Lightning II - update from v3.50 to v3.51


Following the release of F-35 version 3.50, a couple of minor bugs have been detected, so here is a small patch that should fix them. Also, lower resolution textures for canopy reflection and scratches textures are provide, for user that may want to trade some minor details for a lower video memory consumption.
The plan was to establish version 3.50 as baseline, and the build upon it with patches like this one.
Here is the list of changes.

Hi Dino

I bought F-35 at FlightSim Store and can only download 3.11. Where I can get the 3.50 version?

Thank you for your help
Christian

Hi Dino
Nice update but PLEASE! add anti skid brake functionality. Tires lock and skid down runway when landing from day one on F35. I'm tired of changing tires ). Im also trying to figure out how to code anti skid brakes function in panel cfg but no luck so far.

@Christian - I will check with FlightSim Store. Thruth to be told they are the slowest and it may well take another week before they have it updated.

@Steve - my bad, I thought it was in there. It is not a difficult change... will add it to the to-do list.

A beatiful aircraft, Dino! But where can I find a user manual for the updated payware F-35? There is so much more to learn compared to the fixed model in P3D v4.3.

"Improves the freeware version".....

This a patch for the freeware variant as well?

Where can one download the patch previous to 3.50 for the non freeware variant?
