    Curious...though the DJI website shows Phantom 2 Vision.. the software assistant looks like its geared towards the Phantom 2. Hmm?

    well, it shows that they apparently have at least one person who does Mac programming over there!
    So I guess we can all be a bit optimistic that they'll get around to making everything dual-platform.

    (tho I'll still have to keep my PC emulation going on my laptop, since the Tarot is still PC-only (I think), and the Mac version of Alexmos (gimbal) is kinda awkward.

    All updated! Worked like a charm. It's soooo nice to use my Mac Book Pro for that away faster than using my wives PC.

    Does any one know if it's necessary to hook up the transmitter? I did the last update so I don't know if I need to split the case and do it again. It looks like there is no new updates but Im not sure.

    ****Edit****
    I did connect the controller/Transmitter but the software didn't seem to acknowledge it. Hmm. There is a warning at the start up that says to recalibrate transmitter after updating the Phantom AND to update the central board to latest version to match. But like I said no mention of the transmitter.

    On Duty the next 48 hrs so I'll have to wait to fly it and see.

    Nope. Hasn't been updated since Nov 5, so if you already used a PC to upgrade the controller when v1.05 was released yer done:
    5.8GHz Remote Controller V1.0.2.22 2013-11-05
