Don't Buy a Buzzard! Call Uncle Lester instead!

9 replies 470 views Edited Oct 29, 2013

I bought a Buzzard for 1.7+ Mill...

So I called it in and to my surprise it costs me $1000 to call it in and then it spawned at the Hospital.

Not in front of me or down the street like Merry Weather Heli Pick up's. But instead at the Hospital...where if you don't know, Buzzards and heli's spawn all the time.

It's also the same spot where (usually depends where you call from) Lester locates a Buzzard Heli for $700


So if I got this right... I buy a Heli for 1.8 mil and can't get it delivered to me at any location on the map?!? I have to pay $1000! to have it spawn in the same place where I can get one spawned for $700?

Something Aint right.... DONT BUY BUZZARDS, Ain't Worth it!

Yea I heard about that. While if you call for a helicopter pickup for like 1k i think it comes to your location. 1k each time to use property you own and already spent millions on is type bs

Welcome to GTA my friend.

 

You should've bought a tank. Buzzards are very common and can be stolen from almost anywhere.

 

There's really 0 point in buying it.

 

Tanks on the other hand, can't really be stolen unless you're lucky and don't get shot in the military base.

Hindsight is always 20/20.

If I was rank 70 I would have bought a tank. But I wanted a personal buzzard, its more useful. Missions, crate drops, getting around the fastest way possible.

If you need the guns/missiles, then sure.

 

But otherwise I find it easier to call Merryweather, ask for Helicopter pickup, kill the pilot, and then steal the helicopter.

 

It's the same price $1000. But they deliver it to you, instead of having you go to where it is.

I don't think you can sell it. I see no option, and never would anyway.

Yeah, the main idea is you got rockets at the ready, It's like taking candy from a baby on missions.

Well this is very helpful information. I decided this morning I was going to have a buzzard be my next big purchase, but this changes things. I'm shocked that I still have to pay to have something I own delivered.  I'll give my mechanic a raise is he sacks up and brings it to me.

 

Thanks for the tip. Calling Lester it is.

I'm just going to say don't buy them at all.

I purchased a buzzard about a week ago, or so. Then the next time I log back into GTA V; I still have the option for it, but when I call it..doesn't work, and nothing happens. So basically; I wasted over a million dollars on a buzzard, and can't even use it.

I still have the Pegasus contact as well.

 

So for now, I'm a just stay away from purchasing anything from that category.

This all happened after I attempted to enter my friends garage, and it glitched up on me. I had lost my car upgrades during that time as well, and they never returned. 

 

Oh well.

They should just rename it, The Sitting Duck Sd233 - its unstable - the guns fire like a drunken sailor - missiles won't lock on to anything in close proximity - all its good for is landing in small areas of buildings so you can snipe/
