Image of FS One v1 product

Updates for the original FS One version 1 can still be downloaded here. FS One version 1 can be updated to version 1.1. The FS One version 2 updates will not work with FS One version 1 or 1.1.

Update Instructions

These updates should be installed to bring the original FS One version 1 from Horizon (at right) to its final Version 1.1. Start with a clean installation of FS One from the original disc set and then follow these steps.

  1. Install the FS One V1.0.9 Update or if you have FS One Hangar Pack 1 install it instead. After the installation has finished, then start FS One to complete the installation in FS One. When FS One runs, the version number on the main screen should read V1.0.9. Exit FS One and go to Step 2.
  2. Install the FS One Heli Performance Update for V1. After the installation has finished, start
    FS One to continue with the installation, then exit FS One. The Heli Performance Update will only be fully functional after continuing with Step 3.
  3. Install the FS One Update V1.1 and start FS One. After installing this update, the version number at the bottom of the Main Menu should read Version 1.1.

To verify the three-step installation, you should see a new category “Original Versions” in the list of helicopter category selections. You will also see many new training lessons for helicopters.

If you install Hangar Pack 1 after updating to V1.1, reinstall the V1.1 Update.

This update process is for FS One V1 only. It does not apply to FS One Solo. Also if you are using Windows Vista, turn off the UAC before applying these updates, and see the Vista Installation Guide for more details.

Please note that Horizon Hobby, distributor of the original FS One V1, is the provider of Customer Support for FS One V1 and these updates. Please contact Horizon Hobby for Customer Support.
