FWIW, I've sold a few planes recently. I've included with the planes a CD containing both FMS and RCDP, as well as links to places to download models (and places to buy sim controllers). The feedback I've received is that the sims have been very helpful.
I also have a friend with 2 boys (ages 13 and 11), who have had an interest in RC planes for a while. For Christmas, I gave them a pair of HZ Champs as well as a disc with the sims, and a sim controller. According to their mom, they have completely commandeered her laptop since Christmas, and they're spending countless hours on the sim (I suggested they use RCDP, and they are).
I think it's a great "cool" factor, as well as a huge confidence builder that they can fly the Champ in RCDP prior to risking their "real" ones.
Thanks again everyone, for putting together such a useful (and well supported) tool. I know RCDP has helped at least 4 people get into the hobby without all the usual stress and expense.
