Best plane in the game, needs a runway the size of a stretch.

Didn't like it as much as the Mallard. Sure, it got speed but losing altitude when upside down is a bummer.

Not really on topic, but since you mentioned it - I couldn't get the lifeinvader stalking discount to apply for online, only in single player. Did they disable it or what? I stalked everything via social club, but only got the notifications (and discounts) in SP.

 

I used the plane in races - it's pretty good. Nice and fast but not woeful to handle. Haven't tried taking off/landing with it.

Dont get the attraction? I guess its because its a cheap plane, cause there's nothing else cool about the thing. I guess if you already bought a Buzzard, and a Luxor, but even then I'd never fly it.

Hmm, who knows then! I've bought most of my tanks/helicopters/supercars now anyway. No big loss, but that's annoying they didn't apply for me. I guess it was a few weeks ago that I tried to set them up.

Pretty much, I take off in a second and landing takes forever...

thats why i slow down before hitting the runway, especially trevors

although , it's jet engine plane . this means the speed par about jet , shamal & luxor , but not fast as lazer

advantage : despite it's size and most of planes no matter how big they are , all planes are fragile even small explosives in game . this is only plane that withstand three heat seeking missiles from buzzard before completely explode . however , lazer's cannon still shred vestra . these detail are according to wikia and it's proven i just indirectly tested this plane it strong ( my friend use lazer's missiles to shoot me in tail yet still not completely destroyed and managed to bail out ) . the manuverability of this plane same as mallard therefore the features of this plane mixed from private jet to stunt plane

disadvantage : despite having 4 seat and ability to teleport inside , player refuse use 2 seats in the back

It's tail wing configuration reminds me of a toy [X-Men] Blackbird I had a from the early 90's. Anyone got a deep blue Vestra?

The Buzzard is critical to playing missions.

The Duster is simply fun to fly around.

The Vestra...? Not sure, but I wanted one and bought it today. Its entirely useless, but fun. Mine is red/white.

 

Air and sea vehicles need some sort of basic, cosmetic modifications. Paint, really, and optional crew logo. It would go a long way towards making them more interesting to buy than just stealing one in FR.

Great plane, but I hate the fact I have to crash it 6-7 times to get the color I want.

 

@bloatedsack

 

They are all default red and white, but if your crash or ditch it a few times, and reorder it from Pegasus, it comes with different colors. Takes around 1400 bucks to get the yellow and black one.

What's the point of owning an airplane anyway? There are few places to land, you can't hover, can't shoot, takes too long to get to it, etc etc...

i guess its just a 100% spawn thing if you really want it

and it also doesn't despawn until being destroyed which is also useful

i wish pegasus worked better though, a lot of the time when i order up a plane, i have to keep doing it over and over because someone else in the area made random planes take up the spawn spots

"Fun." You might recognize it as one of the reasons you started gaming, before you lost the concept in a mad rush to show your skillz.

 

Note the "z." Serious business, skillz.

I prefer helicopters, but fly my vestra often, but it is the first plane I own other than the mallard that I fly.

 

Titan: large shoot me down sign

luxor: ok, speed wise, but I never go flying with more than two, so I prefer the vestra.

Duster: small shoot me down sign

 

The vestra and mallard can land on mountains, at the beach, at any airport, on top of maze bank, etc. One also has the parachute if you can't land.

 

There's a reason that the sky reaches so high in this game, and future additions of airplanes and choppers is one of the things I am most looking forward to.

Just caved in and purchased one last night. Loving it but still wish you could choose the color patterns for your planes.

I have $5M in the bank.

I have a garage full of fully modded cars.

I make $100-300K a night when I play.

 

I'm the idle rich. What better thing do I need?

 

People really learn the art of being a leisure slut.

Fun plane but the wingspan is stupidly long for such a compact jet.

 

I landed it on the highway but it took some serious maneuvering. Not practical.

Learn how to hover with this plane and you will be able to land anywhere. It's such a shame that the only colour you normally get is red and white, the other colours look a lot better.

All the other small aircraft in the game can be landed literally anywhere (even on the side of any mountain) making them almost as manoeuvrable as a helicopter. The Vestra, however, requires at least half a mile of flat runway to land without wrecking the thing. That is its only downfall.
