And I would similarly suggest meek over Flash Proxy, at least while Flash
Proxy requires that the Tor user be reachable, i.e. not be behind a NAT
or firewall.

(In the glorious future Flash Proxy + uProxy will use WebRTC transport
and be an unstoppable force for good, or something like that, but we
don't live in that future yet.)

Since you have obfs3 already, you might find meek to be a useful first
priority, since it's quite different from obfsx. And then obfs4 would
be next in line because obfs3 is becoming deprecated (in favor of obfs4)
as time passes.
