Hello everyone,

I downloaded and installed DJI Assistant 2 from the Mavic Air product page in order to use the flight simulator on my PC instead of using the tiny smartphone screen.
The install process completed succesfully but I can't see any simulator option in the Assistant menu (the one on the left). I can only update my firmware, donwload logs and calibrate the drone.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there no simulator on PC/MAC (I tried both windows and macos) for the mavic air yet?

Thanks to everyone who will be able to help me out

Hi, Hestia, the flight simulator only can be used on the mobile device via DJI GO4, thanks!

Yeah I agree and hope it will happen... so I can simulate using my iMac 27" screen rather than iPhone X screen

27"?  Hmmm, that could be considered as a unworkable narrow field of view...

Go big, or go home

Are we certain that this is not possible? I just hooked up my MPP to my Mac using the Assistant and was able to see and enter the flight simulator (displayed on the left side). If I remember correctly back then in February when I bought the MPP I was able to fly in that simulator as well as I had the same idea as the OP. Weirdly enough this time it didn't want to work, it just sat there. It worked on a previous FW version back then in February.

Unless I am completely throwing things around now, but I think it was possible or I must be crazy not remembering correctly.

Here is a picture I took.

I love it as well, makes a great gaming setup, especially with Kerbal Space Program.  Its a very cheap solution because second hand 17" 4/3 screens cost nothing, nobody seems to want them anymore.

Thats sweet!

Haven't seen it with my Mavic Air connected, It could also be for Mac only?

That's why I asked! I have see the same assistant menu around the net and I was wondering why i can't do the same with my Air...
