I just bought a BoT after having seen Andy Wardley put his thru it's paces getting my hands on it for a bit. I flew it in 10mph wind at the stock setting for a while then tied the bridle into the active setting per Andy's webpage and really did a nice number on it's flight characteristics. Great new toy.
