I once found a helpful glitch with the Tapejara. I was solo taming a quetzal, when I discovered that if you change to a passenger seat and reload your gun, the Tapejara’s stamina automatically refills. I know it works on mobile with the Tapejara, but I don’t know if it works on other editions or on other dinos.
This Dino is my favorite on the island for various reasons. First, it can hold 2 passengers, a pilot, and carry another. Second, it is the most maneuverable flyer out there. It can fly sideways, backwards, and can land on vertical surfaces (cliffs, redwoods.) Third, it has a tek saddle, so you can have four dubs on that thing (tek saddle, 2 passengers, and one carried person.)
you don’t need to upgrade it’s stamina, if you are in the air and it’s stamina is low, just get in the back seat and wait for it’s stamina to recover, no need to land, if you don’t whistle it to follow, it will land automatically. I hope this helps :)
I love these majestic Dorito heads so much, I, the very rider of the great ‘Bruce Wayne’ (my fallen Carno) have at least five of them for two reasons: their odd characteristics and to mass transport obsidian quickly. Their outstanding speed/weight ratio makes them my personal favorite areal pack mules. And they are literal tree-huggers if you’re in the redwoods.
