I had one of these and it had been set on passive flee for god knows why and my friend was knocked off of it by a raptor and It flew away. We had it for five minutes. Moral of the story is don’t set it to passive flee.
One time on a metal run me and my buddy were trying to get back home. We hopped on the PT and needing metal for a industrial forge couldn't spare any. We began the flight home at 2 miles an hour and we're halfway down the mountain and hear a roar. We turn around and see a max level giga running at us and abandon the PT. We died
What's crazy is that apparently according to ark logic I can build a steel ballista turret AND a high tech heat dispersing ghilly suit 10 levels before I learn how to craft a leather saddle for one of these things?
