Fastest broadband in Europe? Top of the Championship isn't Top of the Premier League.

Re: How this should have been done

I use the "Edit This Cookie" extension in Chrome for this very purpose - great when debugging.

Optionally Manned

The nice feature of the proposed K-Max version is that you can still have a pilot in the cabin.

Use the AI for simple Point A to Point B resupply mission or assign a pilot if it's more complicated.

ARM jingling with cash as its chips get everywhere


Good business

£50m profit every quarter (assuming each quarter is the same) for the foreseeable future is very nice, thank you very much.
