    Modifying the Flight Blueprint


    I am still really new to using Blueprints and trying to learn. I am not entirely sure how to go about this, what I am trying to do is create a character flying on a magic carpet, like a Silver Surfer or kind of like the hoverboard in UDK.

    I have two issues that I am stuck on.

    1. I have started with the Flight Blueprint template and modified it so that I can rotate the camera view independently from local direction.

    I did it by adding two new input axis for look up (MouseY) and lookRight (Mouse X)

    Then I set up this in the BP_Plane

    How could I create a clamped rotation for the look directions? I tried using the same graph from this thread:
    although it wasn't working for me. With the BP_Plane the event tick is being used so I used a sequencer and feed that into add relative rotation it would cause the player to spin really fast.

    2.How would I link my animation to the move forward/backward directions. I created animations for Idle, move up and move down. In UE4 I put them in a blend 1D and made the axis range have a negative and positive range and put the anims with idle at 0 and move move up at max and move down at min. I need to control the variable for move forward from the state machine in the BP_Plane somehow right?

    Am I on the right track? or is there a easier/better way to do this?

    Here is what my other graphs look like:
