If you are going to use these as turrets around the outside of your base, make sure that you have the weight around 500 and over encumber them. When people use these in this manner all we do is pick them up with an argy and fly them away. Sence they are on turret mode they won't move once flown away. Just a helpful tip.
Easiest and safest way to tame this is to lure it under water. They stop aggro and you can tame as you please. Just make sure you come up for air every once in a while. Also be sure the water is deep enough.
