First completely tower free test run today. Superb test and loads of video feedback available on youtube.

Ran it for around 1.5 hours. Had to reset the handle position at one point to avoid crashing.

 I had the back lines a bit tight. Must not tie thin lines directly to large rocks... I knew that. must practice.
