In June - I noted that Ed announced the new relationship with TFDI and will be selling their Boeing 717


 I have been looking at this aircraft for a while-  as I couldn't find a suitable DC -9 for my Hangar. 


I hadn't  bought - prior to Orbx -  because I am quite nervous as to - what seems to me from their manual -  a difficult Install procedure


Before I stick it on My Cart -----


I assume therefore that Central will take the full process - to install this aircraft purchased via Orbx for P3D V4.5 only ??


Similarly - TFDI have not yet confirmed that it is OK for V5 - but there is a beta and a new installer required ( FS Elite Hub)


Can I expect that Orbx will continue as usual with all updates as and when available


Operating system:  W10 /2004

Simulator: P3D4.5 - I 5 - 8G Radeon -16gRAM

Hi Nick

Do mean you installed it "yourself" or by Central 


You know I can be a dill when I have to do things myself -

that's why I want to buy and install it via Central


Yes - I realise it isn't a proper DC 9 but it fills the category as I see it

in appearance and general terms and it looks like the ones I flew in 50 years ago

at the same time as the 727

Hi John,


Just to clarify, as soon as we have the Prepar3D v5 files from TFDi, we will update it on our end and make it v5 compatible.


I don't imagine they will give us those files until they have completed their beta process, however.

Hi Ben 


Perfectly understandable - and reading the statements from the developer - it will be a while yet

Seems V5 has caused a lot of problems - but everyone is happy to wait to  get it right


Personally - I bought the aircraft yesterday-  but  I haven't tried it yet - looks like a long learning curve -

especially since I am a low and slow VOR prop man - but I am happy with the idea of up "lifting" my skills

to the tramlines of Hi Flight Routes 


I bought the B717 as it looks like I want a medium twin to look - it was from Orbx - and it will be my first real jump into "Tubes"

properly - as all  others I have been "practising' on are just freeware's.


The cockpit controls learning curve look to be  a while before I will need to worry about a V5 version - and will use it only in V4 - 

which T.W ! - is running pretty well at the moment
