New plane stats, and lots of new/changed upgrades... So what are you flying now?

I'm currently in a Bullfrog with:
Super Ammo
Mad Props
Boring Out
Port and Polish
Wood Plate Armor
Gutted Hull
Internal Ammo Storage
Improved Wing Design

Stats:

When I land I'm planning on replacing the Imp Wings with High-Lift and Small Ext Cargo to push me over 300 cargo. And there's a lot of new upgrades I haven't purchased yet.

Fisher again, I was in a Cuda for awhile but found I hate blimp combat, even though I don't do much combat.

Not my current layout as I got a sweet combo cargo deal I couldn't pass up:
Mad Props
Improved Wings
Lightweight Hull
Streamlined Hull
Boring Out
Port and Polish

Moves 396 cargo at about 450KPH, crosses Skytopia in about 12-18 hours depending direction, and has enough range to make some pretty long shortcut jumps.

At this exact moment, though:

I'll be avoiding combat like this...

Note, also, Mad Props is deeply broken and mentioned elsewhere to be fixed. +20% speed for one combat slot. lulz.

Cool. So was my post.

Here's what it looks like now with those mods installed:

I've been experimenting a bit with new upgrades, and also needed extra range recently, so now I'm flying this:
Bullfrog
Advanced Radio
Mad Props
Redundant Systems
Internal Fuel Tank
Larger Props
Gutted Hull
Internal Fuel Expansion
Lightweight Hull
High-Light Wings
Small External Cargo

My speed and ammo went down a bunch, but my cargo and maneuver went up a little and my range went up a lot. Is anyone experimenting with the Dauntless? All those slots look promising, but it'll be a month or two before I can afford one.

I'm still poking around in a Cyclops, but hope to get into a Bullfrog soon.
Not a bad build, Kalin.
