"What red-blooded American hasn't gazed at an eagle as it soars through an empty sky, utterly serene, perfectly at one with its environment, refined by millions of years of evolution into the epitome of aerial dexterity and lethal precision, and wondered: what could be more majestic, more dignified, more trascendent? Well, now you know.

Elitás Travel description.

The Nagasaki Ultralight is a glider featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Smuggler's Run update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Ultralight is an ultralight trike, which is a type of powered hang glider. It is primarily based on the Air Creation Racer, with the cockpit and wheel fairings removed and added a more responsive wing.

It features different color combinations or liveries, a tricycle undercarriage and a large glider wing that is controlled by the lower handlebars, having various articulation joints for the basic aircraft maneuvering.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

Vehicle

The Ultralight performs differently from other general aircraft, as it has a lower ceiling (maximum altitude) than other aircraft at 4,800 feet. Landing the Ultralight is tricky because its vast wing and weight make it very easy to lift when making contact on the ground. Touching down at or slightly below level to the ground is recommended (although it is better using the attitude indicator in the first person cockpit). Still, its nippy handling on the ground, short take-off and landing distance make it versatile to use in almost any environment and is great for cruising around the map, but is not the best for offensive capabilities. Careful to not run directly to the aircraft, as it can be easily pushed and the character may get knocked out. As it is a glider, the Ultralight can glide (while the engine is turned off) indefinitely with the pilot's proper maneuvering.

The Ultralight is powered by a small Inline-4 engine, located behind the frame that holds the wing. Several parts that provide the basic functioning of the engine, such as the radiator, the alternator and the fuel tank, can be seen around the engine and the rear section of the vehicle's frames. As with various vehicles featured after the Bikers update, it has fully-animated pulleys and belts for the engine.

Defense

The Ultralight is generally decent at evading targets, but it is fragile against gunfire, as it can easily emmit smoke after a few rounds. The pilot is also vulnerable, and can be killed in the process.

The most redeeming feature of the Ultralight is that if the Muffled Carbon Propeller is added, the aircraft can allow the player to go off the radar while gliding, cruising or under gentle acceleration, making it useful to avoid detection by hostile players.

Countermeasures

The vehicle can be fitted with countermeasures to improve its defensive capabilities against homing missiles, each one with their own attributes:

  • The Chaff countermeasure disrupts the targeting system from missile launchers, rendering them unable to lock on the aircraft for five seconds. They have a delay of five seconds before being used again and only have 10 uses.
  • The Flare countermeasure drops various flares from around the rear of the aircraft, which can "disorient" the homing missile in order to avoid chasing the aircraft. They have a delay of three seconds before being used again and only have 20 uses.
  • The Smoke countermeasure creates a trail of smoke that can disorient the enemy pilot, but its effectiveness is very limited, as the trail is large enough for a standard cockpit and the enemy pilot would just need to move away and follow the smoke trail. It has no delay between uses and can be used indefinitely.
Weaponry
  • The Ultralight can feature a forward-mounted 7.62mm Gimbal Turret. This weapon offers very low firepower against target and vehicles, but makes up for its great versatility and near-complete coverage (at nearly 300 degrees of rotation and -40 degrees of elevation). The player can optionally choose the weapon, which adjusts the camera for a better field of view, although they will have lower visibility for the aircraft itself if the gun is selected. Its sound is identical to that of the APC's side machine guns.

Trivia

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • The plane might have been called Microlight during the development phase, since this is how it is referenced to by the game internally.
  • The vehicle is listed as a Pegassi vehicle on Rockstar Games Social Club.
  • When on the ground, the character turns the front wheel by pushing one of the "pedals" to provide the yaw capabilities. When airborne, however, the wheel does not turn, but the character still pushes the pedals to yaw to a side.
