Airplane control surface animation?


Is it possible to make a mouse movement controlled airplane control-surface animation in BGE?

Above animation is from:

I only known a very basics about IPO animations so, all advices are most welcome.


Don’t see why not.

You’d probably need a python script to translate the vertical movement to control the IPO of one set of surfaces, and the horizontal to control the rotation IPO of the one on the tail.

Alternatively without python, you could still use the mouse sensor if you were happy to have something like the scroll wheel control vertical adjustment with the left and right mouse buttons to shift left and right. Not very analogue, I know, but python free.

Personally I’d probably do a search here and look for mouse python scripts.
