    Looks like DJI may be coming out with Mac OS X versions of Phantom software soon. See quote below for an extract from today's announcement from DJI regarding their high-end A2 flight controller. Of course at the moment the corresponding A2 download section still has only Windoze apps, but it often takes DJI up to a day or two to fully rollout new downloads.

    Hopefully they will release Mac software for all their flight controllers! Not having a windows laptop and having to bring my phantom into my office to tweak gain settings is quite annoying.

    Mac version of the A2 software isn't available yet despite that message saying it is. I'm keen to try it.

    Is this assistant software compatible with Phantom v1.1.1? I was hoping they would release mac compatible software as that's all I have in the house but right now only the Phantom 2 software looks like it's been released

    Well, Phantom 2 assistant just got Mac support. This is excellent news. I'm sure the rest of DJI's products will be along soon as they can't really have some things Windows only and others with Mac versions.

    any updates on Mac compatibility for the Phantom?

    Not sure what I would use the USB cable in the phantom for, because I am a Mac user

    Read the post above yours. Or check the dji site. Yes the phantom 2 assistant is available for the Mac.

    I just purchased my phantom yesterday, i don't think it's the phantom 2.
    How do I check without being able to link to computer?

    Cheers

    is your battery charger white or black? if it isn't a phantom 2, then you need to wait for the phantom 1 software in Mac form. I flew my first phantom 1 for months before connecting it to a computer.
