When using the elytra, Third Person Elytra Mod 1.17.1/1.16.2 will automatically switch you into the third person to enjoy flying. When you land, it will put you back into whatever mode you were in. Works client-side, so you can even use on vanilla servers.
If you want to disable temporarily, press the ‘P’ key (default keybinding, can be changed in controls settings) to disable the mod. This will be saved even if you restart the game, press the key again to re-enable the feature.
