OK all you knuckleheads. I have now had a chance to fly the FVL in about 2-15 mph winds. With and without additional wind screens. Neither end of the scale was where I felt the wind was ideal for it but it worked well and tricked even better.

Here's a mini review:

OMG I love this #@&% thing! It's the bomb digitty trick master. There I said it and I'm not ashamed.
All kidding aside, it's a real sweet ride down trick lane.

At the low end the kite tricks down the window and takes some super small inputs. At the high end it takes a lot heavier commitment on the inputs but continues to trick, right in the dead center of the window if you like. The screens were nice and took the edge off but I tried it without when the wind was hitting pretty hard and to my surprise it still tricked well but I'll keep them on when the winds up in the future.

I'll write up some kind of review in a month or two.

Peace
