the type7 was what i went to from a type 6 mid community goal, i've not used it since i got the asp-x and went exploring. i already have an fdl parked up for space pewpew*. i can afford a type-9, anaconda, or a cutter if i outfit it for trading, but fancied trying out some passenger missions to get a bit more cash so i can get something bigger outfitted for general use. *so i was shooting things in some asteroid belt and ran down my multicannon ammo without noticing, and a wing of pythons messed me up real bad. I end up getting hit and losing thrusters while boosting away, stuck in a tight spiral away from the belt way above my regular max speed, 17% hull, spinning fast enough to make me slightly dizzy sat at my desk (so i go and get a cup of tea). the pursuing ships have dropped off the radar, so i restart everything, hold my breath, and come back on with 2% thrusters. my spin cancels out and my shields start to recharge. i set a course for the nearest station, my fsd starts to charge, and in very quick succession my shields come online, are immediately taken down, i realise the three pythons have caught up with me since my thrusters came back online, my ship fsd engages, and then my pc freezes for a full 6 seconds; just long enough for me to be 'wtf?', before i'm dropped into super cruise and peacefully flying away. It was one of those bits that despite the imperfections keeps me coming back.
