Wrote this up earlier today figured I'd share it with you guys and gals.

My conclusion here is the most eco way to fly in the atmosphere is using the Sleipnir mk1.
The Gungnir is great for flying your friends around.
The Quadwing is one of the fastest air vehicles but also has the largest fuel consumption.
The Dragonfly is very small compared to the others which makes it easier to spawn it also has more acceleration / SI / Armor then the Sleipnir mk1.  This comes at the cost of increased fuel use and lower top speed.
The Lancer is very small and nimble and has most of the same stats as the Dragonfly.  The main difference is that the Lancer only seats 1 person, and does not carry nearly as much weight/items.  Also the Lancer is much harder to drop and spawn compared to the Dragonfly as it has a much larger "footprint".

Ty Tal, very useful. i agree that sleip is the more eco but if MA can solve the quad wing speed problem, i think it will be better. But it takes so long for them to correct problems ingame :P

Ty Tal, your the greatest! I use my sleip for space travel until I can get a quad.

good post there.   How does the sleip do for space travel?  or should we stick with a quad?

I have not tested this but I believe the slepnir is .33 AU / minute.

33 min Calypso - Cyrene
66 min Caly - Ark
47 min Caly - RT

Assuming .33 au/min

The bigger problem with the Slepnir in space is you are a big pinata for any pirates in the area.
Even if you have a passenger and weapons for both slots the Quad has more armor/SI/range/DPS and a much smaller profile "makes it harder to shoot at".  So you stand little to no chance in a firefight.

ahh, got ya.   I don't carry loot anyways and generally get popped once or twice when I make the trip,  let them waste the few ped on me for naught.

Don't forget that you pay MU on the unusable condition too! if you are going for quad wing, go full TT.

Sleipnir purchases are generally doing the market a favour. They are sooo slow in space though, whenever I fly to a different pp via space in sleipnir I'm either carrying 187 Dung or fragments, and I'm ALWAYS afk on bookmark-align
