In general, recent 4.x versions of VirtualBox worked fine (on an OS X host) with DFly, BUT: the USB part of VirtualBox works … intermittently, in my experience, with any guest OSs. This might be OS X host specific, but I need many attempts and the right direction of wind to attach a USB stick to the guest, not the host.

I don't exactly know if QEMU has USB support, but it may be worth a try if VirtualBox acts up. Generally speaking, QEMU tries less hard to be "clever" in integrating with the host, at the cost of performance.

Good luck!
