    Somewhere in this thread you guys wanted a flying machine powered by a redstone torch, so I made a design that uses a redstone torch.
    It has this front cross section
    :stone: :: :stone:
    :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :: :stone: ::

    This is the view looking down
    :Orange: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :Orange: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :Orange: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :Orange: = normal piston
    :Green: =sticky piston

    How to drive
    It takes 5 simple moves to move this ship 1 block
    1. place dirt
    :Orange: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :Orange: :soil: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :Orange: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    2. place a redstone torch on the side on the dirt block (you can right click on a normal piston, it will autoattatch to the dirt block)
    :Orange: :arrow: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :--+: :soil: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :Orange: :arrow: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :arrow: = normal piston head
    3. remove redstone torch
    :Orange: :: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :Orange: :soil: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :Orange: :: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    4. place redstone torch on the side on the dirt block (you can right click on a sticky piston, it will autoattatch to the dirt block)
    :Orange: :////: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :Orange: :soil: :--+: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :Orange: :////: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :////: =sticky piston head
    5.remove dirt block
    :: :Orange: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :: :Orange: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:
    :: :Orange: :Green: :stone: :stone: :stone: :stone:

    And thats it. It should have full resource recoverability. I can get some good speed going with this design. Also, a fleet of 3 of these can be created, and one man standing in the center one can can drive all 3 of them with ease (some resources will be dropped). And the best part of using 3 of them, one man can quickly create a TNT cannon on the airship in any direction!

    Most of you guys go for the tnt accuracy and such, I just lobbed a cannonball 5000 blocks, Im pretty satisfied.


    That seems a little ridiculous. The current record is only about 2800 Blocks. I would love to see a cannon reach that far, but until we have pictures and a successful replication, or a video, I remain skeptical.
