    I find this build, actually really stable, I think the devs are in the right direction with only fixing bugs.

    I would just like to point out that this was not a build, it was just a hotfix, but it was good that you put it here, it just could have gone into (With the edit button) your first post.

    Stop spamm. XD

    Anyway, yes you can light a bomb while flying, but that is not the way you do it, I'll just tell you.

    Tap f three times.
    When the bomb in your hand reaches around 50 chuck it staright up.
    The fly off the bottom one and the second bomb should take you higher.

    The fix was that you could no longer hold down c to keep your charge forever. There may be more but that is what I know for sure.

    That feel, when the build number keeps getting updated.

    - A number of API calls made from KAG servers to the API were changed such that they do not cause lag spikes on the server in certain situations. The server should also deal better with the API being unavailable (if it is completely unavailable, people will not be able to join but the players already in the server should be fine)
    - There have been a handful of changes/hotfixes since 421 came out, so it is time to bump to the next build number to ensure everyone has the latest and greatest


    enjoy!
