hi there.

would like to improve my drone flying skill by using a simulator like LiftOff (on Steam) or Freerider to practice (am currently living in Beijing / a rather large no fly zone, so can only fly on weekends. The DJI simulator is rather boring after a few minutes.... ).

Did anybody find a way to connect the P4 remote to the Mac to use it as controller for simulators / games?
I did the HDMI module upgrade (to use the HDMI with FPV glasses) this got a Can Expansion port. Could this be used? any other thoughts?

Thanks !
Thomas

The Phantom 4 was not programmed with the need to connect to a computer in that manner. I don't believe that you will be able to use it with a 3rd party software.

yeah, unfortunately looks like it wont work. http://steamcommunity.com/app/41 ... 412448158154521001/

but, apparently you can use bluetooth controllers such as xbox 360, xbox one, ps3, or ps4 controllers.

Thanks for your responses. I had seen the posts at steam community. Had though hoped that a fellow P4 fan would have found a clever solution ;-)
