I haven’t tried it yet, mate.
It was very difficult not to shoot the Feds in that RES. They were continually appearing out of nowhere in a rumble, and flying across my line of fire. You have to be ready to let go of the trigger all the time, so I fully empathise with your little escapade.
I did get slightly worried, though - as we were winged-up I was expecting some “payback” from the Feds - you two were gone like ferrets up a drainpipe, while I was still sitting there, waiting for my FSD to spool up! Anxious moments.
After you two left, I cashed in my bounties and went looking for a shipyard to buy the Dropship. I couldn’t believe it - before tonight, I’d been seeing them all over the place, but after checking four systems worth of shipyards, nada. So I ended up looking on the EDDB to find one and by that time I was in even more pain in the knees (I’m having a day off today), so I bought it, upgraded one module and then went to bed. I’ve got enough for the insurance plus 100,000cr and I had to sell the Viper. No worries, though, Vipers are easy to come by.
