Dino Fly

When you find Dino Fly in LBA 1, he tells Twinsen he can only take him around the Northern Hemisphere, because the Hamalayi Ranges are too high for him. However, in LBA 2 he is at the Southern Hemisphere. How is that?

Maybe he was too young at the time and he could only fly at low heights. Although in LBA2 you distinctly see him fly over the Hamalayi mountains (final movie)

Most likely a plot hole, although G.A. Zogem has the best "cover our asses" theory.

They flew back in the end, probably it had something to do with Funfrock, or perhaps DinoFly got older during the game ... Or perhaps it was just bound to happen

I think it's not the real Dinofly, but a clone, the real one is abducted by evil aliens and now he's spending his life in a jail next to Elvis


Or I'll just agree with gazo

Perhaps it was due to his "backache", once he recovered from it, he had the energy to go up and over the range. Dino-sized Tylenol, anyone?

Hehe, yeah he said he had a backache so he wanted to take it easy whilst flying with Twinsen at first. Perhaps he healed over time.

When Twinsen first met Dinofly he was standing at that place for ages ... After that Twinsen and Dinofly flew a lot. Dinofly just got more experienced and now he can fly over the hamalayi again...

Yes, he just got better.

But where did he come from to start with?
Did Twinsen just summon him into exstance?
Was he waiting there thousands of yeays?
Was there other dinoflys?
ect.ect.

Df, you're asking to much questions for your health

Than again, I wonder how long that creature must have waited as well

Exactly, and the Dino-fly say it to Twinsen when he meets him.

I think Dino-Fly was created by Sendell and was there to wait for the Heir when he needed him. He's probably very old, though they screwed that up in LBA2 with his high voice.

from what dinofly said i think he'd been standing there for hundreds or thousands of years, so getting older hasn't got anything to do with it

here's what i think: plothole #384762872763

you will notice that dinofly is actually shown flying over the hamalayis a the end of LBA2

I think it's because Dinofly is a magical creature, and his power is derived from Sendell which is expressed by the presence of the Heir in the world. So maybe he couldn't make it since Twinsen hadn't come into his power enough yet?

Or... it could just be a plot hole.

We don't exactly know how long Dino-Flys live, perhaps he reached the end of his puberty and underwent a final growth spurt, letting him fly across the hamalayi...

I think there are other dino flies, because when you arrive at Tippet Island, the sphero there is telling you that you're gonna need the service of a dino fly. But I don't remember any other dino flies mentioned.

Doesn't Twinsen fly over the Hamalayis with the dinofly in his dream in the beginning of LBA1?

Well done, that could be import for my project.
(I might do some dino-bones near dinofly, or at least some indiction that there was more).

Yes, that would be a good idea, although I think that Sendell sent Twinsen's Dinofly that you meet in the game specifically for the heir so there wouldn't be more dead Dinofly bones near him. There could be a race of Dinoflys on one of the undiscovered islands.
