    First of it’s more like gray than blue, and there is only 1 free cape so this would be a great edition to the game and it won’t effect gameplay, maybe elytras could have banner designs too?

    Bilbo Baggins but we can't customize capes on Bedrock. What we need is banner pattern elytra.

    It would also be veey cool if you could keep the gradient but with 2 colours, example would be a red and blue fade, or even if we could put them into a loom and dye them that way

    Show off new colours flying around I suppose would work like a bit like leather armour infinite colours.

    Although you can get elytra to match capes, capes cannot be acquired in unmodded Java Edition, and you can only get them in Bedrock through skin packs. But I don't want to spend money on the skin packs, so I want to be able to dye Elytra all 16 dye colors, as well as decorate them with banner designs.

    It would be great if we could add patterns to elytra using banners!

    @Bilbo Baggins, while the elytra does automatically match your cape, most people do not know how to make a custom cape. Being able to dye an elytra would be much simpler for many Minecraft players.

    I like the idea but the already existing capes are changing elytras, i don't know how would you combine the two.

    We really need this! Then you can make elytra much more aesthetically pleasing, other than using a cape.

    I think that if you have a cape design on an elytra then the color will make a border around it

    Maybe instead of dyed, we can use BANNERS on elytra

    I feel like it should be more difficult to change the appearance of the elytra, maybe an enchantment or an achievement?

    No because we already have elytra that match with the cape, and one of the two features would be broken if they tried to add both

    If this happens, it would be best if it matched hex colors like Leather armor and not just the 16 default colors. Quark mod had something like this in 1.12 but the feature hasn't been ported to later versions, so it's definitely doable.

    How much dye would it take?

    This is a really good idea.  Another thing I think would work well with this is elytra enchantments.  Here are some of my ideas:

    Soaring I would multiply your flying speed by 1.5, Soaring II would multiply it by 2, and soaring III would multiply it by 3.  

    Divebomb I would do damage to any entity you fly into, dividing your blocks per second by 4 to get how much damage is done, while Divebomb II would divide by 2, killing an armorless player going forty blocks per second.  The durability damage done to your elytra would be your blocks per second while divebombing an entity.  

    Boost I would boost you up five blocks when activating your elytra one block away from the ground, to get some flying distance.  This would do your elytra ten durability damage each time this is used.  

    Catching I would activate your elytra for you if you were less than a block away from the ground, not holding a water bucket, and about to die from fall damage, but it would do four hundred durability damage to the elytra, making this enchant two use at most before your elytra broke.  

    Waterjet I would allow you to use your elytra normally underwater, but without the need of fireworks.  

    Last flight I would make it so that once your elytra broke it would still be usable, but lose momentum twice as fast and make fireworks unusable, just to give you a safe landing.  

    The elytra would also be enchantable with protection, but only protect you as much as a leather chestplate would with the same enchantments.

    It will be an great feature for an elytra !
    Maybe we culd even craft them together with an banner in the Crafting Table, and the banner's design will appear on the elytra !
    Or maybe we culd edit an elytra in a loom like an banner !
