That’s a long wait! But great, it worked out.

Yes, review would be great 👍🏻

Could be a game changer for instructors

Might be useful when kiting because it's already waterproof and compact. But skiing, or mountain biking, a PMR radio (with VOX) in your pocket does the same job cheaper and is compatible to other pmr radios standard?
I bet there is better noise filtering on Milo and the mesh system sounds good (extends the range if there are more than two devices)

Yes, I will do a review in a short time.
And it's not only useful for instructors, we are kiting in harsh inland conditions, both on water and snow, and for safety reasons it will be very useful. Also the social aspect is important. It's fun to talk to each other during a session.

I am using the bbtalkin headset to speak with my gf when kiting, if this one works well i am buying it
i was a kickstarter backer for it (but just the minimum level) however i had given up after so long that it will ever come out

I go kiting so I don't have to speak to my GF so this gadget causes more problems than it resolves :lol:

Mine kites with me, but only if there is a way for us to talk, so she can panic and scream in my ears :D

I didn't think this would ever come out. I wonder how it will work and if it will be available to buy without waiting 2 years.

I got even my cynical after my credit card got hit a 2nd time for the optional accessory order,. Then, after twenty-nine Backer Update emails, "#30 BACKER UPDATE – DEC 9, 2022 – SHIPPING HAS BEGUN!"
I looked back for the original order email - For me, it all started back on October 17, 2020.
