When I tried to install this version (previous version didn't support Spark) I got a warning from my virus checker (G Data)

Thank you for the additional information. We are not recommending customers to download any 3rd party application to prevent some troubles and issues. For the simulator, as of the moment, we do only support windows OS. Thank you for your kind and understanding. Have a good one.

Afaik no, you "just" need a different remote, to use the simulator for the Spark. The RC is (was?) not supported, but the Spark would be.
Or did I confuse something in the topic?

Nah, someone above said
"When I tried to install this version (previous version didn't support Spark) I got a warning from my virus checker (G Data)"
Which made me thing maybe they had updated it to work with the Spark remote.
Seems pretty stupid to offer the Spark in the Sim without supporting it's remove.  How much harder can it be to support it along side the other remotes.  VERY frustrating.

Like I wrote, seems that "just" the remote is the problem:

Yup. let's hope DJI Gets around to adding Spark Remote support soon!  I have a new, beast of a system that will have no issues running it, so it would be nice to play with.

Im really confused.  My understanding was that dji built its software around Apple first and formost.  Or is it just the Iphone is beter suited to dji Go?

Is this simulator different then the one in dji Assistant?

Nearly a year since this post and no update. Really disappointed as I have a Mac which i can’t boot camp and had expected to see a Mac app for flight simulator by now.

I tried running a virtual machine on my Mac with Virtual Box but the specs cannot be built high enough for the flight sims requirements.

Yeah me too, is kind a disappoint. I just don't understand how do not develop this simulator for iOS. I'm not going to buy a windows device just for this.

This kind of brand decision makes you wonder: There is time to look for other brand?

I ended up freeing space on my Mac so I could run boot camp. The issue is that then you need to license windows just so that you can use this simulator.

After all of the effort I went to, I’m not even convinced it is that great. There is a lot of lag between the controller and the app.

Hi, thank you for your response. The DJI flight simulator software is different from the one with the DJI Assistant 2, the DJI Simulator software has the latest function and also added more advance feature. However, this is only available for Windows as of the moment. Thank you for your understanding and support!

I would love to have that as I only own a mac, but I think the quality and frame rate would really be there.
