Shame the FDL has such a borked jump range, you really need to tow it behind something else between systems.
Yeah. One thing everyone was crying out for since day one was the option to have you ships transferred, which was introduced 5 months ago if that. So now a lot of combat types get an Asp with modded jump range, fly to where they want, and get the FDL transferred there for a fee.
Which is why I still think the Asp is probably the most versatile ship, though as mention in those vids, the Python is good. It's pricier though, and the jump range isn't as good.
I think my Asp is around 50Ly jump range, 200 with Neutron star boost!
