Anyone else notice smuggler aircraft rewards stacking up?

I've played free roam for a few hours today (Xbox 360) and noticed that consecutive Trevor's smuggler aircraft takedowns yielded progressively higher rewards. The last one I got, just before logging off, gave me 30K reward. Anyone else noticed this?

 

Also, it's nice to see increased frequency of free roam events.

Yeah it maxes out at 30K. This is the highest paying freeroam activity by far, along with the smuggler helicopters, but nobody seems to care about them anymore.

Still working on the awards for distract cops and smuggler takedowns. Plus the ten and thirty thousand dollar payouts.

Yeah. I too am hoping for these changes to stay. I've made around 250K in a couple of hours of doing free roam activities while in an invite session by myself. That's in line with doing contact missions.

The good thing is that most people tend to ignore them. Not making it to the plane before it "escapes" is usually your biggest concern.

 

I take a Hydra both to catch up to the thing quicker and to avoid unnecessary contact with other players while on the job, but you can pretty much do it in any way you want - Buzzard, Savage or a sports car until you're underneath it + homing launcher, you name it.

 

Heck, I've downed one before with a Swift by ramming it.

Majority of the time I chase the planes in my Hydra, it disappears when I am near it or says it lands. So annoying. But good reward when I do eventually get one.

Pretty good rewards, sometimes it says the plane crashed and that's sucks

Yeah. I've just had it happen. The moment I locked on and fired the rockets at it, it said "plane escaped".

Yeah its not just smuggler planes but distract cops, destroy vehicles, simeon cars, and armoured trucks. I made over a million dollars just doing this all weekend long, screw the lame event weekend playlist.

It was a nice weekend indeed, smuggler plaines, armored trucks, distract cops for Lester, destroy target vehicle, all of these activities got a lot of awards done, that's what i was aiming for, good money weekend all-around.

Was this literally a solo session, or invite only, or a public lobby with only you in it?

I was in an invite only lobby by myself. Literally made 250K within 2 hrs of play (aka. mostly fooling around). The only event that was blocked is the special crates, which makes sense.

I thought they didn't spawn in invite only hence I didn't see them much, I took one down once and got a paltry 4k lol

Yes the planes are a good reward, I think the same happens the more Auto Go (Destroy Target Vehicles)

you do as sure I got 100k for the last one.

 

Sadly the random events are back to every 48 minutes so these planes won't happen frequently until the

next event weekend.

You get $2,000 for destroying a car and $1,000 for a bike. It never increases and you certainly have never got $100,000 for a free roam activity or it would be big news and grinded to hell.

Doesn't the money get higher if the aircraft is flying longer and you take it down just before aircraft disappears? Some, don't disappear and you shoot them to late and don't get nothing. Highest I got was this weekend $15,000 but other times highest I ever had gotten was $10,000 and I'm not sure if they updated it with value or it might just been the weekends event that pushed it to $15,000 but I'm never got higher reward.

The wanted bikes and cars earned me $2k each time.

Distracting the cops earned me $10k.

The smugglers planes and helicopters earned me $30k.

Has been a while like this for me. It's pretty nice when you accidently blew 70K on some chrome rims :p
