Default Mac Compatible RC Flight Simulator

Does anyone know of a good RC Flight Simulator that will work on a Mac computer?
Thanks

Aerofly RC-8 has a version for the mac. Also AccuRC has a mac version. AccuRC is mainly designed with helicopters in mind but they do have several planes as well.

If you have the extra space on your drive, you can install Windows and run it via Bootcamp. That should allow you to run any of the sims built for Windows. Of course, you’ll need to ensure that your GPU is up to the task of handling the video workload. Check online for tutorials that will help guide you thru the process.

There's also crrcsim, which is free and open source and has really nice physics. It works well with my Taranis X-Lite and a USB cable. It's only for LOS, but it's the best LOS sim I've ever played, and the wind in it is *really* nice.

I've just installed AccuRC 2 because of the fixed-wing stuff in it, but there's no FPV in fixed wing yet, which is a bummer. They're working on AccuRC 3 right now, which will have much better fixed-wing stuff in it. Fortunately, it's a free upgrade if you've bought AccuRC 2. Alpha testing is supposed to start soon.

Buddy I tried this with "Boot Camp" and quiet displeased with the results. No where near as good as with a Dell product...and I have had both.

I have heard several folks running X-Plane on the Mac and downloading R/C Planes and software from x-plane.org.

Can anyone verify?
