Don't put points into its movement speed if you want to glide faster. It glides as fast you run, so putting points into your movement speed will increase how fast it will glide. Hope this saves you from wasting levels like me : )
Some youtubers say that they are useless. WRONG. They are better than wasting time crafting a parachute and they can attack and they are small so very hard to target. I saw one of these drill through a rex and the thing didn’t even take damage once and the rex died.
Be VERY cautious when gliding with one of these. I had ventured to the volcano for some amber and metal searching, and I jumped off and began gliding with my little Archae named Skaikru. When I accidentally tapped the screen (Be aware, I am on mobile.) And I chucked little Skaikru right into the outskirts of Redwoods, with my army Valkyrie following my plummeting body all the way down.
Moral: If you’re on mobile whilst gliding with one of these, DO NOT TAP THE SCREEN.
