I short review.
After a few hours playing with it I have come to the conclusion that it is really versatile especially for mission stuff, (I still think the Hydra because of vtol is slightly more versatile still)
One reason is because landing and take off are really fast and easy it has super air brakes so you can land in tight spots and great thrust so you can take of fast as well, I have it with sports handling atm but will try with racing next as it is very stable compared to some of the new planes. It seems to have great acceleration as well as brakes so it is nippy and feels modulated like you have faster influence on speed change, also it will glide with out power for ages.
I have not had chance to give it a dogfight yet so cannot comment on how it is in combat but because it is easy to fly and controllable the fact has counter measures and fast shoot missiles I feel it should hold it's own. But it does not have as tight a turning circle as some of the new updates and its machine guns seem like they are not much use.
It reaches max alt 8000 meters faster than anything I have tried and will go directly up to that point, it is like a rocket.
Has it made me money? It will in time It has not paid itself back yet, but because off the 2x transform races are on at the moment it has given me a advantage on some of those but the same could be said about a moped I bought for a lot less lol. It is good for collection stuff (ceo,biker bunker hanger etc) because you have a chance at landing it at pick up points
At its sale price I would highly recommend it.
