UE4 – Wipeout Style Craft

I have been attempting to implement the flying/driving mechanics for a wipeout style game programmed in c++ for UE4. The ship has 6 downward facing range checkers and matching thrusters attempting to keep the vehicle level resulting in a hovering style effect, keeping to the orientation of the ground below resulting in a sliding effect. The video shows the vehicle in flight around a test course I produced, and then a few tests with moving volumes below the thrusters to show how it reacts.
