Elytra


Trivia

  • When a player is wearing an Elytra in Creative Mode, they can fly indefinitely by holding down the A/X button in Console Editions.
  • On Console editions, players can press the right joystick to make their arm go forward into the superman position while gliding through the air.
  • If the player is looking slightly upwards, jumping off the ground and pressing and holding the jump key while the player is falling will cause the elytra to activate, and bounce the player a little over 1.5 blocks off the ground, as opposed to the regular 1.25. This can be used for jumping Fences without another means of entry.
  • Elytra in real life are the shell-like parts of a beetle`s wing.

Trivia

  • In real life, elytra are the tough forewings of beetles and earwigs that cover the wings they actually use for flight. Elytra are not actually used for flight in real life.
  • It is possible to jump 1.5 blocks while wearing elytra. If the player sprints at the wall and rapidly presses jump, the player activates the elytra, and swoops up to land on top of the wall, even though the player cannot normally jump it.
  • If you glide into deep water with elytra equipped, the animation will not stop, making it look as if there`s better swimming animations. Once you touch ground, though, the animation will stop.
    • Additionally, fireworks can be used underwater but it will give lesser boost duration due to the water`s effect, this is useful for underwater swimming.
  • Elytra can be equipped onto mobs using commands, although for some it doesn`t work. Most mobs will follow one of three different flight paths (which they cannot control) before landing, at which they will regain their AI.
    • Exceptions to this are squid and chickens, as the squid`s AI will cause it to try and "swim" in midair, making it fall straight down because it conflicts with the elytra mechanics. Since chickens fall slowly, they will only move so far.
    • Endermen, tamed wolves and cats which are not sitting will not teleport until they hit the ground.
  • One trick that allows true flight is by using a Punch II bow to hit yourself with the correct timing while, but after 1.11.1, you can use a firework rocket Firework Rocket Type Manufactured items‎ Durability 0 (one use) Renewable Yes Stackable Yes (64) Internal ID 22 Network ID 76 Entity ID fireworks_rocket First appearances See History Data value dec: 401 hex: 191 bin: 110010001 Name fireworks Firework minecraft to fly instead.
  • Although elytra are called "Elytra Wings" in Pocket Edition, the ID is still elytra.
  • 4j Studios created elytra centered tutorial map for console edition when elytra were first introduced to this platform, this map are themed "ruins of an ancient civilisation of Minecraft worshippers" and showcase the new amplified terrain generation, you can see behind the scenes here.

To initiate gliding, the player must jump in midair. From there, direction is controlled by looking left or right, and the gliding speed and rate of descent is controlled by looking up or down. Looking upwards while gliding temporarily increases the player`s altitude, however doing this for too long stalls the player, causing it to descend at a faster rate (indicated by the player moving their limbs).

Elytra allow the player to travel 10 blocks horizontally for each block fallen when flying at a constant 0uc9f8 pitch, not including the initial fall, resulting in a best constant glide angle of about 5.7uc9f8. The maximum flight time is obtained with a pitch of about 14uc9f8 up. The maximum terminal horizontal velocity is approximately 67.5 m/s and is obtained with a pitch of about 52uc9f8 down.

Durability decreases by one point each second when gliding. Elytra have 431 durability, resulting in 7 minutes and 11 seconds of gliding time.

Low server tick will also increase this if the chunks are being created too fast for the computer to keep up.

The player will not take fall damage while gliding unless hitting the ground or a wall at an excessive velocity, which can be caused by nose-diving or stalling. Fall damage will then be a result of the height fallen during the nose-dive or stall.

A player gliding with elytra has a shorter hitbox than usual: 0.6 blocks in height rather than 1.8 blocks.

    Mechanics

    Elytra are a pair of wings that allow a player to glide from high places. They are considered an end-game Item. Elytra will allow a 10-1 glide ratio, which means a player can go 10 blocks forward for every block down at maximum efficiency; however, swooping down at an angle and then swooping up will allow for hundreds of blocks to be travelled horizontally without losing much height. To use it, it must first be equipped, then the player must jump and hold space while falling.

    While an Elytra is equipped and the player is airborne, it is possible to actually fly, rather than glide, by using a Firework Rocket. This propels the player quickly, right in the direction they are looking; when the firework ends, however, and it has a firework star, the player will receive full explosion damage.

    Source

    Elytra can be obtained from the End Ship, floating off of some End Cities in the outer End. It can be found within the hull of the ship, inside of an Item Frame.

    Repairing

    Elytra lose one durability point per second, and have 432 points of durability. They can be repaired with leather on an anvil. They can also be repaired by placing two damaged elytra side by side on a crafting table. Their Durability will be added together, and the two elytra will be merged into one.
