It's always 1 to 6,

it's always 15 to 20,

it's always 5,

but it's never 21,

unless it's flying.

What is it?

Is it

A 6 sided Die

It's always 1 to 6,

It always lands on a 1 to 6

It's always 15 to 20,
It's always 5,

The sum of all 5 visible sides (1 top and 4 on the sides) add up to 15-20.

but it's never 21,
unless it's flying.

When you throw the die, you can see all 6 sides for a small moment which all add up to 21.

And when it lands, it is 5 again.

    $\begingroup$ When a dice isn’t flying, the sides that are visible are 5 sides. @Randal'Thor $\endgroup$ Jan 31 '18 at 14:59

  • $\begingroup$ I think it'd have to be a standard one, as there are many variations that break the riddle now. ;) $\endgroup$
