Rubberised Hull
Personally I cannot do without Rubberised Hull with the heavy cannon, but then I also really like the recharge boosting perk (not that I have tried reverse thrust yet) as I can shoot many more bullets.

The heavy cannon biplane is a energy intensive build and I would not want to play it without this extra energy per second, but then that does depend on the map and number of players a lot.

But the main reason I made this post was to mention how useful I have found Rubber Hull. With every gun on the biplane having so much recoil I find that to continue killing I am often sitting on the bottom of the map, and in a pinch I have killed the resident enemies while laying on the ground, then got up and continued.

If you have a good aim, or want to relay on sure numbers, the more bullets you can pump out the better, and since you have such a long range you do not have to keep up with the other planes. But you cannot remain in the air if you do this for long.

Wisnoskij, in response to what you said at the end of your post, yes, you can stay in the air even if you continue to shoot. It sounds to me like you're just flying slowly into combat and shooting wildly, which is not an effective way to play biplane. You want to play opportunistically and conservatively, attacking only when you have a tactical advantage. As for the recoil, just use your afterburner when you start to stall. It's not that big of a deal. I realize that you are probably a new player, and as you get more experienced you will come to see that you do not EVER need to use Rubber Hull for anything. It's training wheels.
