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.)
I play on a non-dedicated server with my family. I decided to tame a Tapejara because they have a special saddle that has 2 passenger seats. If you’re playing on a server with friends I would highly recommend getting a Tapejara. If your playing single player, I would just go for an Argentavis.
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 found that this Dino is awesome if there is an alpha Dino nearby and you don’t want to risk your base or yourself to complete destruction. Find a cliff or a redwood tree that is near to the alpha, hang upside down and fire away at the beast until it is dead. Boom, pro hunting at it’s finest!
