Hi Jammers, First post in awhile. Hope to keep adding more as I get back into
it.

 Acutally The flying beast would have a very low SR. A movement rate of 50 is
an SR 1 (tatical speed, NOT Open space) Thus most mounts have a movement rate
of 24/36/(maybe)48. So they could only move at a tatical  SR of 1, if not SR
1/2.

On that note they would be very good at boarding vessels, when you are
 already at close ranges and would not need a high SR. Thus you could get
5-10 boarders onto a ship without actually grappling with it.
