Abstract or Introduction
RevSim (Revolution Simulator) is a real-time, pilot-in-the-loop, virtual reality simulator of a Revolution kite. RevSim has been programmed in Unity in C#, compiled for Oculus headsets (Rift, ...), and is available in the Oculus Store with an Oculus key or via sideloading.
A Revolution kite basically consists of two connected triangles that are controlled via four lines by two handles. By symmetrically and/or asymmetrically rotating the handles, you can control the angles of attack and the angles of sideslip of both triangles independently. As a result, you can pin the kite at every position and attitude in the sky.
