Stingers are large, yellow bee-like mimics. They fly around horizontally until attacked. They have no aggression, so they will only attack you if you attack them first.
Tips & Attacks Edit
The best way to kill a Stinger is to get it into a spot with a low ceiling. In such situations, it cannot ascend to the range necessary to attack, so it becomes harmless and can be easily finished. If there are no such spots on the map, just attack it while it ascends. When it is about to attack (becomes out of your reach), start running in one direction - it will miss when attempting to attack you. Repeat the process until it is dead.
It is best to kill a Stinger the way you would kill a Hookbill, because of the similar attacking style. Shoot from underneath, and dodge its swooping attack. Another method is to attack it while hovering, so both you and the Stinger are unable to ascend any further (the ceiling being right above), and it will just hover there, unable to attack.
If possible, hang on to a ceiling, where it won't be able to attack you. It will stay a bit out of reach, like a snapshell, so just back it into a corner and attack at will.
Use your upwards/diagonal attacks to attack it while its coming towards you, it will flash purple and while its flashing purple, it won't damage you. Make sure you aren't in the same spot as it when it stops flashing though.
You can also zip up to the ceiling, and they will fly up next to you (assuming that you've already hit them once, because they are not aggressive) within flail range and will not attack. This is the easiest method, but cannot be done with thin platforms and some other situations.
