I just purchased the NeXT simulator after giving up on sims for Mac for the past 7 years. This is the best I have flown and more than pleased.

Download the program from their web site rather than the Apple App Store. I am told there are many advantages, although I had already acquired mine from the App Store.

It interfaces perfectly with my V-control Tx and usb.

Previously I tried many variations of real flight throughout the years, used parallels, used Fusion, used boot camp windows, all were a flop on my macbook pro, which has more power ability than a mac mini.

NeXT allows me to practice again.

Thanks I will look into it. I was about to do the BootCamp partition and load Win7 and then use Phoenix. You are saying that does not work well?? My Mini is an I7 with 16G memory. I assume that is plenty of power to run the Sim.

If it works there are many annoying aspects of booting into windows, booting into iOD, back and forth.

Also, many Macs share video memory from processor and are limited far
Below the 16.

take my word for it. neXt runs natively in the Mac OS definitely worth it. Has become my favorite sim

I run Bootcamp on a 2011 Macbook Pro and use Phoenix with no problems. Switching to Bootcamp got even simpler after I upgraded to and SSD drive.

NeXT seems worth checking out.

If you are gonna use bootcamp, I suggest Real Flight 6.0 or higher.
- Based on my experience, the RF has better default physics especially on the autorotations.
- 1 to 1 to real life transition
- uses more computer resource
- this requires more computing power and better graphic cards
- if not, system my not operate smoothly
- I'm using a PC AMD 3.2ghz from 2007 w/o issues
- I have used Phoenix, Hobby Partz $30 SIM, Next, AeroFly, etc

If you prefer to run on Mac OS
- use Next SIM
- that is your only option

Hope this helps you make an informed choice ...

AccuRC just dropped their price to £55 heli physics are the best by far even if the model choice is a little limited.

but yeh... bootcamp is the only option right now.
