    • Rapid consecutive Flick-Turns will be fully respected (the previous Flick-Turn was interrupted in the last version)
    • Flick-Turn Duration becomes a tunable smoothing factor (low pass filter), instead of a fixed duration. The time to complete a turn is relative to the size of the angle being turned.
