I have one for the same application but haven't put anything up yet.

Alan said: "I do 40 ft here with a hinge base plate and yes it moves
a little in a strong wind. If I go up it I tie some ropes as guys to 
support it."
Do you mean you don't use guys at all,  or you add extra guys when you
climb it?
