I just did this. It took a dive into the water and that was it. Was that what was supposed to happen? The most anti-climactic thing I've seen to date lol No follow up conversation about being a terrible pilot.. nothing.. That could have easily been left out of the game. Also, didn't that thing only fly when you flew over fire / hot air? How would they expect it to work in this new environment?
It was just supposed to be a nice easter egg or ode to AC2. I thought it was awesome. I was really hoping it was going to fly then it just fell straight into the water. The fact that Connor didn't say anything was just staying true to his personality
