Just purchased this when it was on sale, I also had a personal 25% cashback (still waiting on my $500,000). I really hate landing this thing, but I should practice more. Any videos on landing?
 
Then one day someone was randomly killing people with his Hydra so I went to the sky and took him out with my Starling; that was fun, hopefully I can continue this streak.


When it comes to landing I've found the best way is to stick to a runway, except the airfield at grapeseed because the bumps will annihilate you, on approach slow as much as possible without killing the engine, try to keep your adjustments smooth and light, then soon as your tires hit the tarmac then pitch fully down while complete reverse thrust, hope this helps

Why are you landing? It's not for that.

 

Landing into the hangar is easy, spam dpad-R when you get near. Landing elsewhere is tricky, I found the best way is to bleed off nearly all your forward speed at a really low altitude, and basically belly-flop it. Or land on a steep uphill bit if you are just trying for a quick rocket recharge.

The plane is strong enough to just stall it out and drop it gently on the ground anywhere, it'll land at walking speed no problem. Same way you land an Oppressor in a tight spot.

I feel the Sport handling is better for keyboard and Race is better for controllers, when it comes to fast and agile aircrafts.

(This post is NOT a way to say flying with controller is better performance-wise than flying with a keyboard)
(No war intended)
(I'm a nice person, you know)

Just brought this plane before the discount ended. I had no idea you could add missiles to it. This is such a fun aircraft to use to get around. I've had no issues landing this plane yet. Is the thrust upgrade worth having? The plane seems fine as it is at the moment.

Do it! Get the thrust.

Yes, it´s a flat bonus without any drawback.

Just shot a Lazer pilot dead with the guns, without blowing up the plane. It was beautiful. I love the Starling.

any suggestions for the best SMOOTH handling?

i have upgraded one step of the basic handling.

i thought it was a good choice for more smoothness.

but its not, the reaction is very direct and heavy.

 

i want to strafe really soft to a side and its kicks in.

so, wich handling upgrade is the best for "crusin" ?

I love how you can watch over friendly players going after their businesses. Enjoy the view from above while sailing, and if necessary just dash forward with the boost and nosedive like a bird of prey to fight of bullies.

 

Last night I trolled a griefer on an Oppressor, flying high above him. He would always hop off his bike when my blip approached his. I did that for some time until he must have thought I would not harm him. Then when he went after another player I dashed down and eradicated him.

You can pull this plane out of the hangar and rocket boost before anyone has a chance to shoot at you, even in auto aim distance. So many times there is a fight at zancudo and/or someone waiting directly outside. Just exit the hangar in this thing and you're gone... and get the bomb bay open...

Go into creator, put a starling down, and ram it into the ground with invincibility enabled (or don't, do it in freemode or a job and die). You will laugh hard.

SPOILER: the Starling gets flung 50 feet in the air at various angles when it hits the ground, and it is f*cking hilarious.

^ Daaamn that "no gravity spin" trick, I have to try that myself.

Normally I do similar stunts in Pyro but just for kicks. I never thought about using starling to kill people like that.

With all the vehicles now released, I can safely say this was my favorite aircraft of the Smuggler's Run update.

This thing is deadly in the hands of noobs even, so when a pro like the guy in the video Happy posted gets one, it's more deadly than a Hydra and Lazer put together. In the right hands, this thing dominates just about any and every thing.

I ate up 3 Hunters in the first 2 minutes I logged on today, all three had bounties too. Gotta love a good bounty hat-trick :)

This thing has become my new favorite toy for hunting Oppressors. Being able to blast straight up and out of their altitude range is hugely powerful.

Never even bought it or tested it out. I have no interest in the Pyro. Pyro is just another jet, the Starling is quite unlike any other aircraft in this game.
