How fast does this thing go!!??
By - LeDeanDomino
Wait what? I'm gonna have to fire up GTA just to test this
Edit: It's really that fast
So is it true?
Tried it this morning. Fuck yes it is
it’s a pain to land tho
People actually land planes? Then what's the parachute for?
Its just an ornament
Just like the runways?
Only needed for take off the rest of the jet is just giant bullet
Yeah its fun to try and land
I can’t afford that $1000 deductible every time! /s
Use MC return to dip it out the moment you jump
That requires me to remember to be in an MC before I have to jump. Lol.
Na mate people don't land them damn planes,Men of culture just jump out and use parachute
to find telephone lines and powerlines
Yeah it’s fun to try, 10/10 harder to land in gta than in real life
On the contrary, as my old flight instructor told me, absolutely anyone can land a plane. The skill is in being able to walk away afterwards.
Wanna find me the real life version of the Hydra that is open for public use so I can test which is harder?
Anyone else not able to change their fucking parachute? I’ve had the rainbow one for years and it never lets me change it lmao
I’ve changed it at ammunation but after one use it changes back
Buy a colour from gun store or where ever Go to a weapon locker you can get them for 300k in most property's then u can change the colour and equipment on ur weapons and stuff I wast stuck with a rainbow one too for so long got the black with black smoke trail looks pretty sick
Just jump out lol
Just despawn aircraft with mc club when u jump out to avoid insurance.
It's literal taux fraud
What Vehicle Is It?
Also, if you're just cruising, no extra throttle, you're stealth.
Only with the carbon prop
haven’t seen anyone call him out yet, and we’re on reddit, so I’d say safe to say its legit
another random one is that the Rogue is super fast at high altitutdes, fast enough to almost catch its own missiles. In a steep dive it will actually pass its missles, gave me about 15 min worth of fun yesterday.
The pyro does that too, you can blow yourself up with them if you keep firing and flying which sounds cool and all, but you gotta be careful sometimes lol
I really like the pyro im just disappointed with the guns and i prefer using those over missles so i passed on buying it. Is it worth the buy in your opinion?
If you like dogfighting then the pyro is worth it.
It's super maneuverable in the air, and decently strong. If you don't have anything else to spend money on and want a plane that can outmaneuver a Lazer or Hydra if you know what You're doing, go for jt
Fastest plane in the game, it's great for travel if you're not a plane fighter(it's also good at that).
The machine guns are made for dogfighting, which it's amazing at btw.
Personally, I think it really is! it’s my favorite and always go-to plane, it’s one of the faster jets in the game and it’s maneuverability is comparable to a stunt plane- which can make it seem a little over sensitive at first, but you get used to it. Avoiding missiles in it is a breeze, you can loosely zig zag away, you don’t need to circle. Also weirdly enough, I like how *slow* it can go and still stay easy to control. It makes for landing nearly anywhere and flying in tight places incredibly easier, which is also helped with its smaller size. Everything else mentioned in the other replies too are true! If you’re up to trying it out then go for it :)
I figure ill give it a shot then, Im working on expanding my airplane collection although im between that and a volatol just because i want a large plane to cruise around the map with.
Fun Fact: the pyro is also a lizard plane. When frightened or threatened by explosions, the Pyro will shed its tail to flee its enemies.
Shot myself down in my molotok during a dogfight once
In that case it’s worth buying
I just found out whilst messing around and I thought it might be funny for a few people on Reddit, now I've got like 1000 people loading into GTA just to try it. I didn't know I had such power
My man. You are a legend. I love the ultralight, was saving up fr it and a hangar from the second I loaded in. You have made it famous. Thx bro,
Faster than a lazer wtf. Another reason to buy ultralight. It’s stealth too
It's only stealth if you install the carbon prop & fly it at engine idle.
Yeah I've noticed that too. Combine it with the carbon fiber prop and you have the games fastest stealth vehicle
yea, and that vehicle is so hard to spot i was able to take out two players who were killing everyone in their hunter
my only issue is how slowly it turns
Got in a fight with a guy in a Lazer killing ppl for no reason won and then denied him take off 2 more times, he got angry and quit.
What weapon did you arm yours with? I don't remember all the options, but I was under the impression it's offensive options were limited.
You can only add a machine gun, but it's gimbled allowing you shot where ever the camera is pointing in 300° by 40°
Neat, I'll have to dust it off tonight!
Flying it at night makes you feel invisible
"only" a machine gun :)
That darned thing is so powerful and bugs so much. I've taken out jets in less than a second before. Probably a desync bug but still amazing DPS potential on that thing
Man, I sold mine forever ago because it felt useless. Did they at some point buff it from where it started? Or did I just fail to realize it's potential? I thought the gimballed machine gun sucked, but I only ever really tried it on pedestrians and on foot players. If it deals good vehicle damage I could see how it could be useful. Might have to buy it again.
They did buff it almost guarantee that they did I bought back when it came out it was shit and now it's not to terrible
Well now that money isn't such an issue with Cayo I'll almost definitely buy it back and try it again. It *was* fun, but had almost no practical use and I just stopped using it and figured I'd rather have the money at the time lol. Gotta try it out against some aircraft with what everyone is saying here. And that high altitude speed seems super nice
![img](emote|t5_2xrd1|3212) RAGE QUIT!!
Full rudder and turn in the same direction. Once you are sideways pull back and it will turn tighter.
Does this thing have weapons or? Also where can I buy it?
you can mount a smg ball what can aim at almost 360 degree freedom, by default its unarmed aircraft avaible on elitas
Except you can only go half throttle in stealth, the guy in the video is not in stealth mode.
But what’s the difference between the normal prop and the large prop
This is the #1 way to fuck with griefers btw. Just get the stealth prop and turn it on every now and then and watch them chase you across the map whilst you lap them
What’s the stealth prop
The Ultralight has a stealth prop option that hides you from the map if you're not accelerating
Wow thanks for that. I’ll definetly try it. With akula i tried the same but they outruned me with hydra and killed me
I think the engine has to come to a complete stop first? Could be wrong though, been a little while
No, the engine will be non-stop working after not accelerating, unless you hold a "S" key
I love using this vehicle. The gun handles really poorly on console sadly.
It takes some practice but its like insanely strong. Can destroy an armored vehicle in seconds
The gun is strong and I’ve killed a few players with it, problem is on console in order to fire the gun you have to use the X/A button which makes aiming and steering at the same time insanely difficult.
Yea you gotta play like an octopus lol
If it's that deep you can use button assignments and change right toggle (R3) to A (X on PS) in console settings so you shoot by pressing the R3 button.
I remember a while back I mapped X to R1 when I was trying to get better at dogfighting. Now that I know how to use the camera effectively I switched back to normal controls but it's worth trying something like this.
Only issue is you gotta turn it off every time you hop out of your plane unless you like sprinting with R1 lol
lmao who needs a 4mil jet just get this😳
I remember this was free like 3 months ago lol
Just remembered I got it for free lol, I forgot about it... Now I have a reason to use it!
Imagine flying in a 4 million dollar jet and getting overtaken by a glidey boi
What in the heckity heckin heck is this witchcraft??? I mean everyone knows that theres like 3 different altitude dependent speed limits for air craft and the higher they go the faster they go, but what in the heck? I thought the b11 had a big speed limit differential between low altitude and high altitude but this is just pure weaponized wonkyness
Apparently there’s only one at 850 feet
850 feet is 827.73 RTX 3090 graphics cards lined up.
That's not actually that useless as the bot name implies. 1 foot ≈ 1.03 RTX 3090.
As someone who doesn't use feet as a unit, I roughly know the length of a foot but the length of a graphics card is easier to understand lol
Actually it didn't specify which board manufacturer. NVidia Founder's edition vs. partner's triple fan model is a huge difference.
*more than the worlds supply of GPUs
[Full Supply was shown in this picture on launch.](https://www.gizbot.com/img/600x40/img/2020/09/nvidia-geforce-rtx-3090-vs-rtx-3080-vs-rtx-3070-comparision-1598981359.jpg)
This is underrated. Bravo my good sir Bravo indeed
speed starts ramping up at around 800 and maxes out at 890ft
I did not know that
Join online, Spawn from hangar, go as high as possible, nose dive at 45 degree until you hit max speed slowly level out and stay above 1000ft = this.
For any plane or helicopter that is stored in your hangar and has engine upgrades available… if you take it out of your hangar instead of spawning it with the interaction menu, it will go much faster when above altitude.
The biggest differences in speed include the hunter going from 250 to 322 km/h, seabreeze going from 310 to 614 km/h, and the ultralight going from 118 to 575 km/h.
The effect seems to massively reduce drag on the aircraft when above altitude, so it works best on aircraft with high power and high drag. For instance, the pyro is normally the fastest plane, but it already has very low drag so it doesn’t have as much of a speed increase.
I thought the Pyro was the fastest vehicle in the game at high altitude though?
I think they're just talking about magnitude of change in speed rather than absolute speed
It is, without using this bug though.
Holy fuck its the fastest aircraft. I spawned it in single player and here are top speeds
Below 1000 ft: 60 MPH
Above 1000 ft: 290 MPH
For comparison, here are LAZER's results (both cases wheels up)
Below 1000 ft: 155 MPH
Above 1000 ft: 195 MPH
A 230mph speed difference. That's mind blowing
Air is thinner higher up making it easier to fly faster. R* does a great job at attention to detail.
pilot dies of hypoxia and nose dives=ultra speed
Surely Rockstar Wouldn't Kill It's Customers
Yep, just like how the prop powered rogue is faster than a literal fighter jet 😉.
Well duh, everyone knows training planes are faster than Harriers and F-16s.
I don't think there would be such a huge difference with an ultralight.
A lot faster than mine!
How is this vehicle called? And price? I want one
Shut I’m buying one today!
Definitely worth it for the fun.
Jesus christ I thought the ultralight was supposed to be slow as fuck what is this magic
It is at low altitude. I just wondered how high I could go in it and then all of a sudden, I'm about to break the sound barrier
The true Mach 5 Speedracer.
This thing is so cool, I bought it last weekend and it makes so much fund xD
The speed is so impressive
It's the fastest vehicle in the game.
For anyone wondering how:
Climb over 3k then level out and dive down a bit then you'll gain a lot of speed. It resets below a certain altitude. Great for trolling Lazer pilots btw. Maneuverability is terrible but best way to turn around is fly up until you stall and then bust a 180.
How do I add weapons to this bitch??
Actually, the higher you are, the faster you go
Yeah I already knew this but didn't realise how fast that would make this thing go. Compared to the speed of this at low altitudes, its insanely quick
Yeah because who would go this high with this thing lmao
at least 10 km/h
How did I not know that the Ultralight could go so fast? I know what my next purchase will be!
I've owned it for a while because it's a fucking glider, but I never knew the speed flex of it. Looks like this is gonna be my main way to travel around the map from now on, rather than letting it collect dust in my hangar.
Gonna have to dust that bad boy off
Fun fact : get to speed, let off the gas and it disappears off radar
maybe thats why you rarely see them on the map😂
Faster than the piece of shit Velum thats for sure
Same goes for a lot of vehicles lol
That baby goes zero to holy shit in fuck you seconds (over 300knots)
I knew that high altitude makes planes goes faster but this thing goes from the slowest thing in the game to Mach 10 speed. It's insane
Me likey. Me gonna get one!
Not sure you had useful input there but I didn’t like seeing you downvoted so - have a good one!
Thank you! Although I’m not sure what upvotes or downvotes do to affect my life. I thought the op’s question was rhetorical. Have an upvote for your good self sir
It doesn't matter how fast it goes, it's a fucking glider, reason enough that everyone should own one. xD
alright, alright. **now land it**
"Gently...gently...no no no, I don't wanna go back up in the air!!!"
Yeah... 9 times out of 10 I have to call Mors Mutual when I've finished using it...
haha what the fuck is that
The nightmare you'll be having tonight.
That's fucking terrifying
I had one of these as a tellitubbie. It was absolutely terrifying, not for me, but for anyone who entered my room in the dark and saw what looks like the farmers face from MiB 2
Now you can't say that I use mk2 to quickly move around the map.
Eh, mobility wise mk2 is OP. Even if it's not as fast as other options the ability to land right next to the obj every time no matter the location without any difficulty whatsoever outweighs this 100%. It's be annoying to have to land like 100 years away in some instances, or have to continuously call the vehicle because it got wrecked on a crash landing.
Can’t spawn this thing right next to me
Shhh.. rockstar gonna patch :/
You reached maximum altitude Tread through the clouds as you wish!
Got mine for free so I may start using it
Isn’t there like four propeller and each one do a different thing?
The ultra light is insanely fast I have raced hydras in them
It may be fast but it cant turn very well
Faster than the plane you take to Cayo.
So is everything in the entire game lol
Is this real?!!! Getting on GTA rn! Hahahah
It's real alright. I just discovered it whilst messing around with vehicles I hardly ever use. Didn't know how much fun this was
What do u have to do, just fly it real high? (Near the height limit?) does it need upgrades?
Right, I’m selling everything and buying this
So GTA does have vehicles flying faster the higher they go, just like in real life. Assuming the Power output of the „motor“ is equal, higher altitude means less molecules to push away and thus faster speed.
Ive been flying an ultralight forever and I hate when it does this because theres no slowing down unless you just crash. I was goin mach 3000 on one of these once and my game crashed and rebooted within the time it took for it to finally hit the ground after i wasnt in control.
I haven’t played in two years but I gotta try this shit
Yeah it's awesome, The amount of trolls I've done with the Hydra players are absurd.
Damn! Shit might actually be worth getting now!
Now I’m glad we got it for free a while back
Yeah I think that's when I got it too
Any upgrades to propeller? It might determine top speed.
I haven't tested it, I doubt it changes the speed. Only that the carbon propeller makes you go off the radar when gliding
Can someone tell me the vehicle's name?
Ultralight. It's on the Elitas Travel website
It does not.
Bro I got 2 of these
All aircraft are faster at higher elevation, just like in real life
guess i was the only one who bought this when it came out. it’s also the only vehicle where a pilot has a controllable turret
How does it compare to butterfly stroke with Hydra?
I got that for free too
Higher altitude makes everything quicker
Glider has been on my Wishlist and am definitely Gonna buy it now 💯
How long did it take to gain that altitude 🙂
The higher you go in GTA the faster you fly
Yeah I'm always high when I play GTA
I used this after the gun buff to it and then flew away at like Mach 12
What the suck is that?!
I saw one of these almost hit a Cessna today IRL over my college
Might've been me. Sorry 'bout that
You were flying a microlight over Preston at about 150 metres right in the path of a small plane?
My bad, won't happen again
About the speed of dillon o'brien when someone offers a free burger king
How does it compare to a pyro!?
Pyro is one of the fastest jets at low altitude, whereas this glider is super super slow at low altitude. This is only fast when you're high up in the air. Pyro is more practical
I had a dream about the Ultralight and this post this morning. I took it to school (for some reason) to check if it really went that fast (even though I already graduated in 2020). Now after waking up, the first thing I do is hop on Reddit to make sure if this post was actually real or not. Glad to see it's real, as surreal as that feels to me right now. Now I'm gonna go fly my Ultralight at mach 7.
You had a dream about my post. I didn't think anyone would see this post and now people are going into GTA to try it and you are having dreams of it? I don't know what to say
CONGRATS YOU MADE IT TO A GAMERANT "ARTICLE"
Damn I wish that I still had my PS4 to test this.
I'm poor on pc.
You could do this for like a whole year or more can't believe you guys only just discovered this haha lol the mini helicopter from the sub also gose just as fast as the microlight
What is this
