Jesus Christ, I dunno if this is intended, but when flying at low altitudes with this thing (less than 1500 feet) the max speed is around 60. But if you get some altitude, more than 2000 feet and hold the throttle this thing goes supersonic. Try it if you dont believe me, go in first person view, get some high altitud and watch the speedo. It is INSANE, like faster than a Hydra. Mines got all the upgrades, and the silent blades. Please someone try it so I know im not going crazy.

This is the ideal way of landing an ultralight for those having trouble with it. I added this to the GTA wiki page. "Landing the ultralight is tricky because it's vast wing and weight make it very easy to lift when touching down. Touching down at or slightly below level to the ground is recommended. Using the attitude indicator (blue and brown gauge) in the first person cockpit helps with this."

Other than the tricky landing characteristics, this is an extremely fun and satisfying plane to fly. Souped it up to the max. Engine, carbon prop, the lot. Flying off the radar is the most redeeming feature of it by far. Inconspicuously watching warzones from above, and just flying to wherever while off the radar is a blast.

Just tried this out and holy sh*t, took off from LSIA and was in Paleto in 1 minute. Its super hard to turn when going that fast and I'm guessing its a glitch but its going way faster then any other plane in the game for sure.

 

Edit: Tried doing it again a few time and cant get it to work again, seemed to only happen under certain circumstances.

One of the best things from this DLC. Amazing machine, and this off the radar feature is a gift from the skies.

And the model is awesome !!

In first person, there is a really cool feeling of freedom flying the Ultralight.

I love the thing so much.

The OTR feature is so lowkey its insane, just poof and you vanish. No bells and whistles just...gone. You can spawn it close at the touch of a button, it needs barely any room to take off and with practice you can land it in tight spaces.

Yes, the thing costs nearly a million to buy and fully upgrade but like the Phantom MOC its very unique and worth the money over a generic multimillion Super.

It attracts so much anger and hate as well, people will go out of their way to fire missile after missile and my Flares just eat them up.

Most (all?) planes have a higher speed above 1000 ft.
So this one just has it, but a little bit more extreme ^^

Found a use for it. Slap a sticky on it and fly to your target. This "of the radar" feature is perfect for allahu akbar-attacks.

I decided to buy one of these for a bit of a laugh and I actually quite enjoy it! It's pretty relaxing to sail over LS at night whilst flying in first person view.

Is it fast enough to be good for moving cargo? That stealth feature sounds like it'd really help with that.

Hadn't thought about this. Does the off radar feature still work when carrying a crate?

If so it will be very handy to be off the map and to get well above those annoying NPC choppers.

From what we have so far, yes. Don't know about the unreleased vehicles.

Fly high and slow and nothing will bother you.

The Carbon Prop also lowers the sound the engine makes so you can fly over war zones and the only evidence of your presence is your shadow.

I have named mine Altair and painted it white and red.

I believe I used the race handling

Well, without the supersonic speed glitch it has a max speed of 70 mph, sometimes 80 according to the speedo in first person view

I doubt it would matter since the cargo would probably still show up on the map. If you call Lester to go off the radar I'm pretty sure it only hides your blip and not the cargo.

I really enjoy this thing. Fly as high as you can, power down the engine, whip up some Los Santos Rock Radio, and glide your way back down to Earth. A wonderful machine.
