Sean Hamilton (MrPopoTFS), Community Coordinator at Epic Games, has announced that the X-4 Stormwing Plane will receive a significant downturn in Fortnite patch v7.10.
Sean responded to a Tweet Tweet on Twitter asks for more damage to the pilot when the plane is destroyed. To the player's relief, that was exactly what team made with Epic Games had in mind.
While initially saying that pilot injury should be increased from 25 to 35, he corrected himself and said it will be raised to 50 years.
Update: Appears it was only changed to 50 in v7.10.

When the plane gets destroyed, if it crashes or gets shot down, the pilot will take 50 damages after patch v7.10. This would significantly affect an arrow's aggressive playing style and give them a bigger chance on the ground.
Many players have given their feedback on X-4 Stormwings efficiency, it seems that the highest majority feels that the aircraft is too powerful in its current situation. It will be interesting to see if this change solves that problem.
An official edition for Fortnite patch v7.10 has not yet been announced. It is expected to leave Tuesday, December 18, 2018 – but it is pure speculation at the time of writing.
Stay tuned to FortniteINTEL for the full v7.10 patron, as well as any other changes that may be announced prior to official release. New cosmetics are also expected to be added to the v7.10 update.
