      Please excuse my ignorance, but do you need to be actively on-line to use these, or was this meaning to say just for installation?

      An internet connection is also required.
      Always liked the Vans RV-4

      Are you using P3D v4 or V5?

      These aircraft are for 32 bit: FSX, FSX:SE, P3D V1 to V3.

      I was able to install them through Orbx Central. Went to the product pages and clicked install.

      The downloaded files are only useful if you have the earlier version of Orbx Central (version 3) installed. In that case, you can manually install the files using that version. If you have the later version of Orbx Central v4, the downloaded files ares useless... as they are not compatible with that later version.

      So, either install the free aircraft using the latest version of Orbx Central v4, using the blue "install" button, or install manually using the earlier version of Orbx Central v3.

      Version 4 of Orbx Central does give you the option of choosing a folder containing backup files of all your installations, so theoretically you could reinstall these files at some later stage.

      I have ORBX Lancair previously purchased for FSX, and the plane works fine in P3d v5 HF2. I only need the way manually install Victa and Vans to p3d v5, so i can test how does these work.

      Very fine looking, indeed, but flight dynamics perhaps not so good : stall and spin don't look very realistic, if possible at all.

      I went to the ORBX site today, downloaded Orbx Central and it's my understanding it only recognizes 64-bit OS. Is there a 32-bit available? I couldn't find any mention on the Orbx site..
