Anyone know of a good flight simulator compatible to real flight or Phoenix for Mac?

X-Plane is about as real as it gets. LINK

And let's get this moved to "OS X Apps and Games" as it doesn't really belong here in "Schweb's Lounge".

I bootcamped my iMac for various reasons, but that allows me to run MSFS X.

I was looking for something like real flight that has a rc controller. The ultimate goal is real thing outside. I Only put this into the lounge because I was looking for a wider range of folks Looking at the thread. I figured it may get moved. I should have just put it in here in the first place. Anyhow. Not looking for a real life plane sim but rather a real life rc sim. Thanks fellas

I couldn't find one - I ended up running Phoenix in a Win 7 virtual machine using VMWare Fusion. Works great.

Just giving a little update on the simulator i bought. I installed windows 7 via bootcamp onto my 2010 Mac mini. then installed the simulater onto windows. It works perfect no lag perfect graphics. The mini actually performs better than expected.

I bought Real Flight 6 not flight simulator 6 like i mentioned in my previous post. i am getting pretty good at it too. it has about every RC plane or Helicopter you can think of (the package i bought also came with the helicopter mega pack)

Thanks for all the help.
