Elyta are an item that allows the player to glide. Elytra are grey in color unless the player is wearing a cape, in which case the elytra will adopt the cape's design.
Elytra are found in end cities. One pair of elytra is found within an item frame in each end ship.
Elytra are equipped in the chestplate slot. They can either be placed directly in the slot, or be equipped using a dispenser.
To initiate flying, the player must jump in midair. From there, direction is controlled by looking left or right, and the flying 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).
