Im getting one for the wife for christmas.
They are loads of fun, and can be quite challenging(sp?) as well.

Indian Fighting Kites are great fun if you fancy some competition.

The flight and damage models seem all wrong. I'll think I'll wait for the next patch... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif
