I was just checking out the website for the SK360 Digital Flybar.

http://www.skookumrobotics.com/

I like what i see about this unit so far. it looks really nice and the price is excellent.

I would be planning on using it with the Aerodyne four blade head on the Trex 600E, but after looking all over there website i couldn't find exactly the computer system requirements. Does anyone know if this unit comes with software to support the macintosh? I am a Faithful Mac user (i hate anything Windows/PC) and want to know if i will be able to use this unit with my powerbook. Meaning do they make a software version for OSX? Thanks guys.

Cheers,
Clint

Clint,

If the software isn't natively supported on Mac OSX, I would expect it to work with VMWARE or Parallels. I use WMWARE to run Windows XP on my Mac, and it handles every USB device I've thrown at it so far.

Hey helitronix,
thanks for that nice bit of info. i am actually not sure what
WMWARE
is. I know quite a bit about all things apple/macintosh/OSX, but this one is new to me. Is it a free program or is it like parallels, do you still have to purchase a freakin version of the program or actual windows program in order for it to work??? Thanks, this would be a good idea to do in order to make the programming work.

Hi Clint,

VMWare is commercial software,like Parallels. It's the same idea, with a slightly different implementation. You still need to have a Windows OS install CD to have it run Windows. It uses your discs for a fresh install. Alternatively, you can point it to an existing Windows machine and have it image the disk and execute that.

If you don't want to use that, you can always use BootCamp, which comes with Mac OSX, and dual boot your machine.

Regards,
Joel-

Just to clarify - I made a typo up above. I wrote VMWARE and WMWARE. The WMWARE is a typo. It is only VMWARE.
