Not to be confused with Elytraor Flying.
Flying machines are mechanisms that use slime blocks and/or honey blocks, redstone blocks, observers, and pistons to move a structure of blocks in one or more directions, moving freely through air or water without support. They can also be designed to carry along a player and/or other entities, which may be riding in a minecart or towed along by honey blocks.
The mechanics of such machines vary slightly between the Java and Bedrock Editions of Minecraft; This guide covers Java Edition and Bedrock Edition in separate sections.
The key blocks for flying machines, more or less in order of appearance:
- Pistons are capable of pushing or (sticky pistons) pulling up to 12 blocks. These can simply be arranged in a line in front of the piston, but slime and honey blocks allow carrying along blocks placed to all sides of that line.
- Various immovable blocks (notably obsidian and tile entities such as furnaces[JE only]) provide limits and frameworks.
- Redstone Blocks: The key point here is while most other redstone power sources are partial blocks that get broken by pistons, this one can be pushed or pulled by pistons, so a machine can carry its own power source.
- Observers are sensors for both the environment and adjacent parts of the same machine, which can also turn a change in one part of the machines into power elsewhere.
- Slime and Honey blocks are similar -- both can "stick to" other blocks at their sides, carrying those along with them when pushed or pulled by a piston. Their differences are as follows:
- They do not stick to each other.
- Slime blocks are solid blocks, which can take and transmit a redstone signal, while honey blocks are transparent blocks which cannot.
- Slime blocks bounce entities away from them, while honey blocks drag entities along with them (and prevent players or mobs atop them from jumping).
There are two main components of slime block flying machines:
The engine provides the basic control and motion, based on the idea that a slime block pushed by a piston will move adjacent movable blocks, including other slime blocks, when pushed or pulled. However, each piston is limited to moving 12 blocks total.
The splitter uses additional pistons to let tow along additional segments of a larger machine. Honey blocks can also be used to bypass the piston push limit by using adjacent slime block and honey block flying machines to divide the number of blocks in a structure among pistons. In Bedrock Edition, splitters are divided into leading and trailing types.
Note that the schematics in this section use the usual building scheme where layer 1 (or occasionally layer 0) is the bottom layer.
Java Edition Flying Machines
Engines are mechanical parts of slime-block based flying machines used to move them.
In all cases, a major issue is control, especially how to start and stop the machine. There are several options here:
- A semi-automatic engine needs player's intervention to move it, generally by updating a piston -- e.g., using flint and steel on it, or rapidly placing tripwire against it.
- A fully automatic engine can be started by a single update, say by breaking a block (perhaps a button or a sign). As switch can be used, but is likely to be left behind once the machine starts to move. Stopping them can be more difficult -- many engines will stop only when they run into an obstacle. If the obstacle is wrongly shaped, it may break the machine, thus a prepared docking station may be needed.
- A few "drivable" machines take advantage of the point that a note block produces an update when played, so a player riding the machine can trigger note blocks to start and/or stop the machine.
- Engines can also differ in available directions and speed. The simplest can only move in a single direction, but two-way and even diagonal motion are possible. Again, dedicated docking stations are sometimes needed.

A two-way engine can be made with as few as 6 blocks – 2 Observers, 2 Slime Blocks, and 2 Sticky Pistons. Two-way engines A and B (see gallery above) show two different ways to do this. In both cases, the direction of flight depends on which observer is updated first. Note that in the diagram shown, each observer directly powers a slime block. The dock shown is placed so that the trapdoor will cover the face of the incoming machine's near observer, which lets it send the machine back the way it came.
Adding honey blocks allows a player to be carried with the machine in relative safety. The rideable engine shown adds two honey blocks, and a player can stand on each of them. It can be made with 14 blocks – 8 slimeblocks, 2 honey blocks, 2 sticky pistons and 2 observers. Getting on and off is another problem
Turbo Engine A (see gallery) is a high-speed single-direction engine. It fits into 2×2×6 dimensions and uses 14 blocks. Since zero ticking pistons is not possible on bedrock edition, this kind of flying machine will still be the same speed on bedrock edition as normal flyers, however, several meters per second flying machines have been created for specific use on bedrock edition.
An engine can also move diagonally by moving alternately along 2 axes. The Diagonal Engine shown is best built out from level 3 (the upper slime--and-piston layer). It moves along its slime-block diagonal, but is guided by immovable (e.g., obsidian) barriers on level 3, so it can follow a straight or curved "rail", in whichever direction(s) it can move until it reaches a corner to block it. It is started by activating either of the observers on top (placing a block, flint-and-steel), and will move away from that corner (that is, it is also a two-way flyer).
Credits: design from "samnrad" ("smart diagonal flying machine and curved flying machines"YouTube
This video demonstrates two-way engine A above, with long slime-block arms for harvesting, which shuttles between two prepared docks. It can be triggered by placing a block atop the pistons, or by switches at the stations. Note that the harvested crops will be launched at some speed, so this design may be better for an enclosed farm.
Splitters are mechanical parts of a fully-automatic flying machine used to push an independent part of a large flying structure. A single piston only can push or pull up to 12 blocks. Splitters split a structure into multiple independent pushable parts (hence the name).
A one-way splitter has 2 parts: a normal piston in the rear, and a slime block (or more) with a power source in the front with space between them.
Once the rear part with the piston is pushed, the piston will be activated by a power source from the front part. It will push the slime block (and thus the next part of the flying contraption and its splitters), which pulls the power source with it. The piston will then deactivate and prepare for another push.
Some simple engines are just made of looped splitters, such that, at any given time one piston is always powered (in these machines it is important to place the redstone blocks last).
A two-way splitter consists of an observer powering at least one sticky piston which pushes or pulls a part of the flying contraption. This is possible only in Java Edition because it's the only version where sticky pistons (upon receiving a short redstone pulse) can push a block and then retract quickly without pulling it back.
This type of splitter will either continuously pull or push depending on whether the part it's supposed to move is initially retracted or not. If the part is initially retracted and the splitter is continuously pulled, the sticky piston will continuously pull the part. On the other hand, if the part is one block away ("not retracted") and the splitter is continuously pushed, the sticky piston will continuously push the part. This mechanism necessitates a switch within the flying machine to independently retract and extend the splitters before flight, because otherwise, the engine will most likely be unable to push due to the "stuck" retracted splitters adding extra load to the engine's pistons.
Driveable flying machines
A flying machine can be designed to not only carry a player along, but allow them to control the machine in flight, starting, stopping, or changing directions. Often due to lag, slime engines can bug allowing the player to fall through the machine. This can be solved by placing the player in a vehicle such as a minecart, by standing on top of a honey block, or by standing inside a Composter.
Note: Placing a minecart in any such build will require a temporary rail, perhaps atop a temporary block for convenience.
Starting the engine of a flying machine often involves updating a piston or observer. Braking, on the other hand, isn't as straightforward to do in survival because a piston-immovable block must be present to stop the engine. A reliable braking method that was first popularized by SethBling is to attach a noteblock (or any similar redstone component movable by pistons) to the "face" of an observer that powers a piston. The piston is placed on the front of the engine, and since extended pistons cannot be pushed by other pistons, activating the noteblock at the right time will stop the engine.
By using sticky pistons instead of pistons for the braking components, they also become 2-way splitters. These can be used to carry extra blocks, such as holders for minecarts/minecart chests, passenger roofs, TNT duplicators, etc.

Driveable flying machine A:
- Dimensions: 8x4 collapsed
- Materials: 4 observers, 10 slime blocks, 2 sticky pistons, 2 regular or sticky pistons, 4 note blocks. For seating: 2 fences, 2 minecarts
- Usage: To start left or right, click the note block with that arrow (behind you). To stop, spam-click the matching barred note block (ahead of you).
- Credits: Sethbling February 29, , "Simple 2-Way Controllable Flying Machine" (Video). YouTube
Driveable flying machine B is kurzawa6's modified version of Drivable machine A, with minecart chests and a roof attached to the 2 two-way spliters. One splitter carries a roof to protect the driver from phantoms, the other carries a cargo module with two minecarts (optionally with chests)
- Dimensions: 10x6, 2 high minimum, 5 high with roof.
- The slime block marked a can get another slime block above it, with top slabs on each side sheltering the passenger/cargo minecarts.
- The starred minecart is the "pilot's seat".
- Before going either way, first make sure the roof is retracted by clicking the < block, and the cargo is retracted by clicking the > block.
- To go either way , click the appropriate < >. To stop, spam-click the matching barred block < > .

Driveable Machine C is a 2-way machine which can be reconfigured in the field to go the other two ways, by mining and replacing four blocks. It can carry two passengers, and has two cargo bays for minecarts with chests (or plain minecarts, for passengers). It uses 20 slime blocks including the cargo bays. Its use is complex, but may be worthwhile just for bragging rights.
- Dimensions: 8x10, 3 high.
- Usage: The machine is started by updating an observer (one of the two with open faces) twice, using a flint-and-steel or a water bucket.
- To go east:
- Set fire (or water) behind the west-most observer.
- Sit in the eastern minecart.
- Before the fire extinguishes, click the note block nearest you to release the brake.
- Wait for the fire to burn out (or remove the water) to trigger that observer again and start the engine.
- To stop the engine, spam-click the same note block. Check that the carrier for your minecart is retracted, if not, click the note block again to retract it.
- To go west, do the same in mirror image.
- To switch to north-south movement:
- mine the starred pistons (note the helpful logs below them) and rotate them a quarter-turn clockwise -- still facing outward, but the other outward
- likewise, mine the starred observers, and put them in the positions and directions of the arrows.
- To move north and south, similarly twice trigger the "rear" observer, and use the nearer note block to release the brake and stop the engine.
- To go east:

Driveable Machine D is a compact four-way engine that is controlled by applying a redstone torch to the central observer.
- Materials: 13 Observers, 26 slime blocks, 8 sticky pistons, 8 regular pistons. For use: redstone torch, immovable block
- Dimensions: 7x5, 4 high (or alternately 5x5x5)
- Build guide:
- Start with the central two slime blocks of layers 2 and 3. The lower of these needs to be at least two blocks above "the ground" -- that is, the highest ground you intend to fly over.
- Place the upper sticky pistons outward, then use those to place the lower ones facing inward.
- Add the downward facing observer on the top of this, then the four-high slime pillars outside the pistons, extending above and below them. Use those to place the downward-facing observers on layer 1.
- Extend the slime pillars into T shapes, at the top on two opposing sides, on the bottom for the other two. (this diagram has the top T's at east and west). Place the regular pistons at the ends of the T-bars, facing into the machine.
- Place the layer-2 observers against the slime pillars, then place the layer-4 observerd against the T-bars.
- Note: the layer-4 observers alternately be placed atop their slime blocks (level 5), each pair facing each (powering the adjacent pistons). This placement fits the entire build in a 5x5x5 cube. However, that higher position slightly obstructs the rider's view, so the original builder prefers the 4-level build.
- Usage: The player stands on the pistons surrounding the top central observer, with a redstone torch in hand. The engine can be started in any direction by placing and quickly breaking the torch on that side of the central observer. It is stopped by again placing the torch in the same place (and leaving it until the engine stops). With the machine in motion, placing the torch may be difficult, having a few spares may be wise. Note that it is entirely possible to fall through the corner holes, so step carefully, and stay on the piston you're riding while the machine is in motion.

More complex engines
The following video shows a complex example, an infinitely expandable flying machine with a 2-way engine and multiple splitters (each carrying 2 TNT Duplicators):
A 4-way engine (2 vertical directions) that switches directions upon contact with a few blocks.
A 6-way engine that requires dedicated stations.
Bedrock engine designs
Flying machines are much more restricted in Bedrock Edition due to the lack of quasi-connectivity and other piston behaviors. In Java Edition, a sticky piston powered with a 1 tick pulse will drop the block it is carrying. The absence of these behaviors makes it difficult to create complex flying machines.
Simple engine 1
Simple engine 1, observer and redstone block provide the propulsion.
These are basic flying machine designs. The shown examples will move to the viewer's left.
Removing the block of redstone, or placing obsidian in front of the observer, will cause the machine to stop. This may be hard to do, unless in creative mode.
For players who want to ride their flying machine, it may be hard to add and remove the obsidian or redstone block (especially in survival mode). A slightly easier way is to add layers of another material (such as wood plank) to the machine, stopping just before the limit of what a piston can move and doubling as a practical gondola for the player at the same time. From a position sitting on the machine somewhere, the player may add another wood plank block to the machine, killing the speed. Removing the final block causes the machine to start again.
Simple engine 2
The simple engine 2 provides a narrower but longer design, which requires less redstone than others (less redstone blocks). In this example, the machine would begin moving to the left once the observer on the right is activated. This can be done with a redstone pulse, or just lighting the face with flint and steel.
To reverse the direction of this machine, simply move one of the slime blocks to the back, and switch the piston and sticky piston.
This design is ideal when redstone is scarce, or when up to 9 blocks need to be placed on the front end (the front half only consists of 3 blocks, with a total of 12 blocks able to be pushed by the piston).
Simple engine 2 with trailer
By placing an observer and a sticky piston onto the side, one can build off of the Simple engine 2 design to make the machine bigger as a whole. Keep in mind that multiple trailer attachments can be placed on the side, up, and/or down simultaneously without exceeding the push/pull limit of 12 blocks. This is one way of creating a splitter in Bedrock Edition.
This addition can be used to hold more cargo, whether it be entities, chests (which are only movable in bedrock edition), or TNT (which can be detonated by a following machine equipped with a redstone block).
Bedrock multi-directional flying engine
Return station, side view
This design is multi-directional but it does require a return station to change the direction. The observers are 1 block higher than everything else and have slime blocks below them. The return station is only an example, anything that pushes the machine over so that the other sticky piston is unable to pull the terracotta should work. It may help to watch the videos below to see some more examples.
In Bedrock Edition, it is possible to create splitters, however they are only functional in one direction. This first is the trailing splitter (Trailer, shown above), and the leading splitter. The leading splitter can be made by attaching a backwards-facing observer directly behind a forward-facing normal piston, both attached to slime blocks.
A flying module array. The first module is a covered engine, the second and third modules are the middle ones and the final one is made like the last two, but without a splitter in front.
Minecraft's honey can be used to build flying machines
Minecraft's long overdue recognition of bees just became a bit more significant to the practical minded player. With the new 19w41A snapshot patch, the honey they produce can be agglomerated into usable blocks, whose unusual properties have been a boon for in-game builders, engineers, and even athletes.
The internet had already recognised the importance of bees, but with the possibilities honey blocks offer, Minecraft players have been busy all weekend.
Honey blocks are sticky and slow movement and jumping, so of course players have started building parkour courses with them.

The benefits of a wall section that slows falling are obvious, and are already being used to enhance obstacle courses and elaborate base entrances. Less obvious is the fact that honey blocks are slightly smaller than regular ones, meaning you can lean into them and stand on any solid block underneath. I can think of a few places where that would have saved me some nasty falls, and made climbing out a lot easier too.
You can do some pretty cool wall riding things with the new honey blocks :D from r/Minecraft

Items and monsters stick to the honey too, which has been applied, naturally, to create a mechanism that dispenses a full suit of display armour. The honey block is underneath the wooden trapdoor here, as its sticky properties apparently penetrate trapdoors and wall tiles, just like the real thing.
Using a honey block to pop out an armor stand from the wall (updated, dsicovered you can place a trapdoor to make it look way better). from r/Minecraft
Having recently escaped the life-devouring clutches of Minecraft, I was not in a hurry to go back. But a few players quickly figured out that since honey blocks pushed by a piston also move the blocks around them, they can be made into basic flying machines. This was possible before, using bouncy slime blocks, but anything standing on top of those would fall off. The magic of honey has changed all that.

I am suddenly very tempted to build a fleet of these to send my whole pet village in a really budget Red Arrows display over the main RPS base just to see their bewildered reaction. Or perhaps I could use it to relocate the animals milling around my most recent camp. Hmmm.
Minecraft snapshots are essentially test versions of future updates. They're pretty easy to activate, as Mojang explain in the update page, but if you're not feeling confident they'll likely merge into the regular version in the near future without any trouble.

How to make a flying machine in Minecraft
Flying machines in Minecraft are an ingenious creation that allows players to travel in the air as if they were flying (hence the name). Luckily, they're easy enough to build and even allow for straight travel above any obstacles (such as trees or water).
Another popular function of flying machines is AFK travel, which can be incredibly useful for players in certain situations (such as traveling in the End). This article will teach players exactly what's needed to assemble a flying machine in Minecraft.
The easiest way to build a Minecraft flying machine
Before beginning assembly on the flying machine, players will first need to collect the required items listed below.
Items needed to build a flying machine in Minecraft:
- 1x Sticky Piston
- 1x Regular Piston
- 2x Observer
- 7x Slime Block
- A lot of building blocks (e.g., cobblestone)
How to assemble a flying machine
The first step is to build up high using building blocks. The height reached will be how high the flying machine flies. Higher is typically better as the machine comes to a stop if it hits an obstacle (such as a mountain).
Place one slime block on top of the tower and another slime block next to it. The second slime block will determine the direction of the flying machine, so be sure it's placed correctly.
For example, the flying machine in the picture below will fly forwards as the second slime block is placed in front of the first.
Next, place an observer and a regular piston next to the slime blocks in the arrangement shown below. Make sure the direction of the arrow on top of the observer is facing the direction of the second slime block.
Place two slime blocks coming off the regular piston and then another slime block to the left of the two slime blocks, as shown below.
After this has been done, place a sticky piston coming off the latest slime block and facing towards the initial second slime block. The entire arrangement is shown in the picture below.
Place two slime blocks on top of the furthermost slime blocks. Next, place an observer on top of the sticky piston in such a way that the arrow is facing downwards and the “eyes” are facing upwards, as shown in the picture below.
Place five building blocks to extend from the furthermost slime block. This will be where the player must stand while they are being flown.
Make sure to break any blocks from the initial tower that are still touching the machine. After this, place a block on top of the upwards-facing observer. If this is done correctly, the machine will move very slightly.
To engage the flying machine, players simply need to break the block that was just placed on the observer. The entire machine will start to move.
To bring the flying machine back to a halt, players can simply place a block back on top of the observer.

Introduction: Minecraft Flying Machines
Until the update for PC Minecraft flying machines were only in mods and with command blocks. Now you can make them in vanilla thanks to slime blocks!
These designs are my own and are the fasted and most compact that I have seen yet. They have a top speed of blocks/second which is faster than walking but a bit slower than running. Over long distances it is more effective than running as your hunger doesn't decrease, works AFK and because you are going in a straight line and not over hills it is quicker.
There is a couple of variants I am going to show you how to build. The first and easiest is the single seater, then with a small addition it can be turned into a two seater. The next is a single seater which can fire/drop tnt.
Other small additions can be added on like lights on the single and double seater can be added but that is really upto you.
These machines are single direction only. They cannot turn mid flight. To change direction you have to dismantle the machine and reassemble it facing the new direction. The machine is started by updating the piston with flint & steel (Google block update in Minecraft for more information on how this works) and is stopped by placing a Redstone block on top of one of the pistons which will lock the piston in the on state, halting movement or by running into enough blocks that the piston cannot push all of them. (A mountain or tree)
Step 1: Materials
To build the single seater you will need:
- Slime blocks x10
- Sticky piston x1
- Normal piston x4
- Redstone blocks x 2
- Any movable block x1 (I use Birch wood but this could be a stone or any other movable block)
- Any non-movable block x 1 (this could be obsidian, note-block, furnace,chest etc)
- Boat x1
- Flint & Steel
To convert the single seater to a double seater you will need:
- Slime block x3
- Any movable block x1 (I use Birch wood but this could be a stone or any other movable block)
- Boat x1
To add lights:
- Glowstone/Sea lanterns x3
To convert the single seater to fire/drop TNT:
- TNT x however any you wish to drop
Step 2: Making the Single Seater
The single seater flying machine is what all the variants are based around. Watch the video or follow the step by step photos and you should be able to make a functioning machine.
Make sure you build the machine facing the way you want to fly and at the correct altitude so you are not gonna run into the first tree you see.
The non-movable block (obsidian or similar) used in construction is to stop the machine running away when you are building it. Soon as the craft is finished it can be removed and the machine will not run away on you.
The first piston placed is a sticky piston. all others are normal pistons.
Step 3: Double Seater
The double seater flying machine just has an extra support added onto the side of the machine to support a second boat.
Once you have made the working single seater the second seat just involved adding a support for a second boat on the left hand side.
Remember to add the non-movable block at the front before starting, otherwise the block update will cause your machine to take off without you.
Step 4: TNT Launching Flying Machine
All that is done from the single seater is the support for the boat where you sit is moved forward so you can place TNT on the front of the machine. If you place TNT on the front of the machine then light it, the TNT will be propelled forward and if you place it on top then light it the TNT will slide off the back and drop down and explode!
This is lots of fun for flying raids. just make sure you don't blow yourself out of the air. ;)
Step 5: Adding Lights
Because pistons can push upto 12 blocks, which means some more blocks can be added to the craft while still allowing it to function. My favorite is adding lights. This involved putting a row of Glowstone or Sea lanterns along the front slime blocks. This gives a head-light affect which I quite like. This works on both the single and double seater.
Step 6: Operation
So one you have built your machine it is time to jump in and head out on an adventure.
Make sure you have removed the non-movable block that was stopping your machine from running away and hope into the boat by right clicking on it.
Now with Flint & Steel in you hand, right click on the front facing, left hand side piston. This will cause a block update which will start your machine and your off!
A couple of things to watch while you are using the machine:
- Don't get out of the boat if you are still moving or high above the ground as you will fall off the machine and die.
- Be careful while shooting arrows. You may break your boat and fall out as above.
- Don't use TNT on the double seater as it will stick to the TNT and blow you out of the air.
- On some servers it may cause a bit of lag because of fast moving pistons and updating chunks as it travels.
- If you run into something the boat may be pushed into the back block suffocating you.
Stopping the machine is done by placing a Redstone block on any of the pistons locking it on or running into a stop or other non-movable or large object.
Step 7: Have Fun!
Yay! Now you have your very own flying machines! They are lots of fun to travel on and are pretty simple to make. Now to construct an airport and you are all set!

We drank a glass with him, and when we went out to smoke, it looks like that the girls, too, took communion, their eyes were so. Bright. We chatted a little more, as always, jokes were used, performed by Nikolai Ivanovich at times very erotic, but the girls listened with pleasure and laughed.

The persistent tongue touched the clitoris through the thin fabric of the panties, and I went crazy with pleasure and arousal. Skillfully pawing, he waited until the panties got wet and quickly pulled them off me. Then he helped me to get down from the stool and whispered in my ear: - I will tell you right now, right here. And he asked me to return to the counter again.
I did so.
