There is no difference between the JR and Spektrum interface.

I just got a MacBook Pro and installed Bootcamp on it. My Pheonix V2.5 runs better than ever on it, I absolutely love it as a platform for using a sim.

Running Bootcamp here. Pheonix 3.0 works great with this setup.

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

bootcamp is the way to go... I was skeptical at first, but after loading it and playing it, I love it on my Mac... I normally use it on my HP laptop, but am very happy to say it works great on the Mac as well..

How do you hook this up to your radio?

I took a closer look at the web site. They send you to a link on how to "build" and "program" your own interface.

Not sure if thats what I'm looking for.

I use bootcamp and realflight. I wasted money on some of the virtual windows software programs but they didn't work at all because they can only access very limited video graphics resources from the mac. Total waste.

Bootcamp is free and works great.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

Problem is my hard drive went down. And I can not locate my Microsoft XP SP2 program.

I'm thinking. If I have to purchase another windows operating system, I might as well just look into getting a Mac version.

And I am definitely not getting windows 7 Starter. I have that on a netbook. They have disabled functions and denied you access to them. So, you can't even purchase 3rd party software to fix it. The program says ACCESS DENIED.

They should rename it Windows 7 CRIPPLED. Starter my @ss. I mean. I cannot even print to my home network printer or change my startup screen. We are talking basics here. Or maybe they should call it...

Window 7 for people stupid enough to buy into it.

Sorry about that.

I have an iMac and was looking for a sim for it. I found a thread here on RR about Aerofly 5.0. I found their website and bought the software.

They released an upgrade to 5.5, which was free. I like this sim over all the rest. It feels more natural, acts more like a heli. However, there are a couple of things that is not quit right. Still can't feel the weight of the heli (per say), another words, the reaction time is missing. When you punch the throttle from a hover or recovering from an auto, the reaction time is instant. There is no delay/lag in response, this makes autos feel less real...on the sim.

The other thing I noticed is performing hurricanes. They work great in one direction (clockwise I believe), but difficult in the other direction.

Outside of that, I really like the Aerofly sim over all the rest. And for what its worth...the heli's fly better than the planes.

I installed the Aerofly in my MacBook Pro, it works just as good. Now I need an USB to HDMI adapter so I can fly on my LCD TV.

aerofly5

I have an iMac & I'm looking into the aerofly5 sim.
I'm just not up to speed with the controller situation.
I wonder if I could use a interface/controller from a
Realflight system? I have one of those around here.
If not, I fly with a Spektrum DX-7 in the real world
so I'll have to figure something out. For those who would
be so kind to lend me a hand...Please translate your info
to "Grandparent" terminology. I'm not super savey with a
computer.

Aerofly5 has a couple of way to interface with their sim. Buy their controller (sorry, but I doubt the Real Flight controller will work), or an adapter cord for your radio.

Anything else...you will have to call them and ask.
