indeed. I kit out an ASP and run those missions, 500k-900k for a single hop and land is just fine by me.
Frontier did however cut the number of missions you can hold at once from 20 to 3. While it doesn't directly bother me here, I used to mission gather at the edges of civilized space and the reduction severely reduces how much money you can make per hour. At this point they are making longer grinds with minimal rewards. It is already driving off some people. I don't play it hard core enough for it to bother me that much, but it does suck.
