He is a medium investment (4 Elixir)which can fit in many deck archetypes.

He has slightly less HP and damage than a Musketeer, however he has slightly better speeds and he can fly.

Flying Machine is great for defending, counter pushes and supporting.

Think about him like a fragile Musketeer. He dies to Fireball.

Since Flying Machine has an attack range of 6, it can outrange lots of troops:

Flying Machine’s Counters

If you have the choice to pick out the Flying Machine, watch out these cards as they can easily counter him:

Clash Royale fireballClash Royale PoisonClash Royale LightningClash Royale BatsClash Royale MinionsClash Royale Mega MinionClash Royale MusketeerClash Royale Electro WizardClash Royale ArchersClash Royale ExecutionerClash Royale Ice GolemClash Royale Knight

  • Although Bats die in 1 shot, they overwhelm
  • Minions need 2 shots from the FM to die.
  • Mega Minion takes down Flying Machine in just 2 swings and still has plenty of HP left.

In short, most air targeting troops can counter the Flying Machine on defense, except:

Clash Royale Spear GoblinsClash Royale PrincessClash Royale Ice WizardClash Royale Dart GoblinClash Royale Fire SpiritsClash Royale Witch


  • Princess is okay If you can afford the Tower damage.
  • Fire Spirits will almost kill the Flying Machine. Thus, make sure your Tower is not distracted by something else.
  • Ice Spirit work very well If the Tower takes some damage first.
  • Witch will lose without Tower support.

Flying Machine is good against:

Clash Royale CannonClash Royale TombstoneClash Royale Mega MinionClash Royale MinionsClash Royale Lava HoundClash Royale Graveyard

  • Cannon/Tombstone – FM can help clear these quickly from the river as assistance to cards like Hog Riders
  • Helps defend flying troops from a distance like the MM and Minions on your side of the arena
  • Good against Lava Hound and Graveyard – Position far enough away from the tower so it won’t be Fireballed with the tower.
  • Graveyard spawns Skeletons twice as fast as the FM shoots, so skeletons will spawn, but the tower should help clear it

  • Fast win-conditions like Battle Ram, Hog Rider or Bandit work very well with the Flying Machine.
  • Flying Machine could be used to bait out Fireball for Three Musketeers.
  • Great against Air Decks. Undoubtedly
  • Glass Cannon like FM is always good for Beatdown decks.

Some others would work very well with him: Ice Spirit, Ice Golem, Knight, Mortar, X-Bow etc.
