i did get the out to sea mission about 5 times, only crashed in the water once (first time i tried lol) 

 

haven't seen the thread, i'll have to give it a look! it honestly is the only thing in the game that made crates bearable this week though 

 

Damn right! I have made ten million this week from grinding Crates and the large majority of it was made using Ol' Thrusty. Spent a good chunk of it on new toys but I intend to make the majority of it back.

I've been using this against ground targets recently, and it's pretty damn good one you've got the hang of it. My only problem is that it's got limited rockets. I find it easier to use than the Buzzard, but you're more prone to being shot out. I rarely see anyone use this thing.

Just showing some love for the Ol' girl.

The MkII may have been my main for a while but this will always be number one because come on, its a freaking Jetpack!

I know I have just posted above but I had a good play with this last night to try and get the MkII out of my system and its bloody brilliant. If the MKII was not a thing this would be the single best Solo Grinding vehicle in the game. Against NPC's the Missiles are easy to use even Sightseer is easy if you are careful and dnt get close. The lock on is just as good as the MkII and without using the "land speed in flight" oversight the Thruster is faster in the air than the MkII.

The Client Jobs are easy to Solo as well.

Can anyone do me a favour and tell me what the max speed the Thruster can reach? Like someone with a Speedometer mod on PC?

I feel as if its more than a hundred miles an hour.

this might have been brought up before, but does this thing get the "hangar boost" that helicopters do when you exit the facility with it? i swear it feels quicker

This is the most respectable "meme vehicle" easily. Why don't I use this more often? It can do that thing where the MKII missiles don't hit it, and I can use it as a helicopter. I need to make use of it more.

Whenever I see people talk about the MKII for grinding, I always think the missiles are overkill. Don't get me wrong - that thing's obviously good for grinding. But against NPCs, I've never really felt like missiles any better than a Buzzard or Thruster were necessary.

I'll have to have a look next time I'm on. It does behave a lot like a helicopter, so it could do.

Because you are a VERY naughty boy! But seriously this thing is magical once you learn it, I find myself using it  more than the OpMkII even for grinding. I find it more responsive to control.

Look at this way, there is a reason that R* relies on giving the NPC's cheat weapons and cheat aiming. The AI is not very good. Normal Homing Missiles are fine.

I don't use this thing much, but I love it when I do. And I really like the way the missiles sound.

I did a rough test and it seems to have the same top speed whether you take it from the street or the facility. Beyond that is a little more awkward to test, but I don't think there'd be a difference if the raw speed is the same.

 

This thing's quite a nice small target for explosive snipers - much harder to hit than a Buzzard anyway. Only problem is if it's lagging (it nearly always is) sometimes an explosive sniper round will kill you in one hit. I'm not sure if I could get around that loading up on armour or something.

Good man!

 

Its basically a tiny Helicopter thats classed as Personal Vehicle so can be called to your feet. Its also the most precise vehicle in the game because it has a hidden mode that tightens up your controls.

 

If I may be so bold, if @Happy Hunter gives it his seal of approval you know its good.

I've had mine for a while, but I advise everyone to get one of these now.

 

Upgrade it, fly at full speed, and enrage broomstick boys as their missiles explode harmlessly behind you.
