Why is the drill head on the crane arm like a kids finger in a Nuttella jar once its in the ground its just uncontrollable ?? there is no controlling it!!!!

What do you mean? It works well enough, I've just taken about 16 coal out of the ground with it.  It is abit shuddery, but wouldn't you be if you're being spun and pushed into dirt..?

Just found a great new use for the crane, you can put a seat on the end, someone climbs in and then you have a cherry picker and can put people up on ledges and swing them around so they can look for hidden treasures in caves.

may be a bit buggy for you... this can go a little crazy sometimes... maybe try restarting?

I haven't had any trouble operating the drill crane while alone.  It has been a pain for me in multiplayer, though I imagine that can be filed away with the vehicle bugs.  Some refinement to the controls, like the indicator Repseki mentioned, may be beneficial.

It works just like the terrain gun, but instead of an indicator decal, the drill head/arm snaps to the location on terrain that you point it at. If the head is jiggling, it's because the terrain under it keeps changing.

 

I hope the poor thing gets some kind of area of effect upgrade or something. It's just so awkward to dig with.
