If we don't strangle ourselves doing this it won't be for lack of opportunity.

But yes, that is so very cool.

We will need to add to the universal set of hand signals.  One for, "I'm stuck in the foot strap" seems mandatory.

This is a cool little running upgrade.  The tiller (left) has an aluminum adjustment knob at the end which adjusts the rear foil angle on the fly.  That can now be adjusted by twisting the extension (Battlestick on the right).  It is indexed with 5 really notable clicks.  It will be cool to see how that interacts with the wand controlling the front foil angle.
