The tapejara can turn in all directions while flying and has a front and back seatso it can make taming easier (like very dangerous animals like direbears and direwolves and terror birds etc) do to you turning in the air by looking at places. In unofficial servers (YOUR unofficial servers for Xbox) can be used for aiming at things with commands (kill dotame forcetame and some that I missed) by getting the command ready and using it as fast as possible when in range. Be careful when taming something that you don't get too close because it will damage the front/backseat player and the tapejara if you the back/front seat player gets hit by the attack.
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 :)
These things are incredible on extinction. They are almost as common as pterodons in the sanctuary and their ability to land on walls makes traveling in the sanctuary and the sunken forest alot easier.
