    I feel this is a useful idea, many people believe the phantoms are little more then a Nuisance, being able to use them in this way would change that, however there would be some balancing issues, it certainly shouldn't be anywhere nearly as fast as the elytra, 10 minecraft days isn't that long, the elytra should be the superior option do to it's difficult of obtaining.

    Perhaps you could have to keep feeding it food or it will be hostile again?

    I think this is a good idea, and I like the idea of riding a phantom around. However, phantoms in Minecraft only survive during the night, so what would happen to them during the day? Otherwise, I think this would be a great update to have in Minecraft rather than having to install any mods. Nice idea!

    When they are tamed, they should not burn. Like, by taming them, you heal their soul, repairing them, making them better. This way, it would seem less of just taming them as you actually helping them become better. Also, the only way that they could be faster than an elytra would be by feeding them a new item called the charged fruit. You get this by crafting a popped chorus fruit with 8 sugar, then getting 9 of those. That's what you feed them. Then they will go at elytra speeds.You just won't be able to fly by cats, and they will always resist you when flying by fish or endermen, as they would want a tasty snack.

    This is a good idea but they would need to be able to survive in the day

    maybe for them to survive in day you could make a phantom umbrella that would keep them safe and give 2-3 armor points - make it like this   

                                              Leather Leather Leather

                                               --------  Stick  ------------

                                                             Stick

    And an upgraded version (this gives the armor points) where the empty slots are filled with gold or iron or even diamonds

    This is a great idea, it doesn't matter if they burn in the day, we'd find shelter during the day for them, if they hit us, we'd be consuming healing potions, if the chorus fruit is not enough for game balance you could use wither roses, if this is not enough balance you could make it required to put an elytra on them that wears over time, but the phantoms looks amazing and if on top of that we could aim at the enemies and shoot without having to turn their direction that'd be very nice.

    Ils a good idéa the phatoms burn in day Time so if its added to the game the down aide is that you could only you se at night Time. The elitra can be youse all the Time but its hard to get, ridable phatoms could be esier to catch but can only be youse at Nigt. To protect the phatoms at night I propose just to not put it in contact whit the sun. Armor for phatoms could also be youseful to protect tour phatoms from other mois.

    Yeah I think they should vary like horses you’ll be able to breed them but they never are quite as fast as elytra but they are an animal so you don’t need gunpowder and paper just whatever to heal them if they take damage, honestly would love to be able to ride them and build, maybe they can only be used in the End and Nether since they die in sunlight, or maybe we can make waxed armor or a helmet and stop that.

    I love the idea of keeping phantoms on a lead. I picture them as flying kites tethered to a fence post in my base.

    The developers should add something that they eat, maybe rotten flesh, to encourage them to land so they can be saddled and mounted.

    Being able to ride phantoms would really give them a positive spin after all their bad press.

    This idea has my vote.
