Honestly, knowing where you get to fly, a Simulator is way overthinking it. If you can keep the kite in the air and do ANY basic maneuvers, you are past the point of the Simulator entirely.

If you spend the same amount of time flying that you would have spent making the simulator you will not need the simulator in less than half the time it took to make it. It's great if you want to demo a Rev to someone who has never flown one before so they believe it is easier to control the kite than it really is in order to make a sale or to introduce absolute beginners to quad line kites, but other than that there's no reason to have one. As an instructional device it is not productive since it creates muscle memory that one must "unlearn" later. It's better not to acquire bad habits in the first place than to undo the damage later.

Simulator teaches nada, it's purely a retail tool for convincing naysayers that they can do it, bridging to an actual lesson.

The tutorials (from any source) are far more valuable.
