Tracking screen angle for vertical flight motions

It has bugged me for a while how when you're flying the angle of view does not change with you as you move in the vertical axis direction.  I never brought it up because I figured it just wasn't something they'd consider to change. 

However, I just recently played Flight Club for the first time in a while and I totally realized the screen does that there!  It tracks your angle of flight in the vertical direction so you always see directly in front of what your Viking is seeing.  

Why is this not also how flight works outside of Flight Club?  If there is a valid reason, then please disregard this post.  If it can be done, I think it would be a great improvement to the overall experience of the game, as it would make flight easier and much more realistic.  Thank you.

Because it's annoying

I find the tracking really annoying.

 

But that's just me.

Flightingale the Steaming Stormswallower

Backstory: Flightingale never used to be a dragon. She used to be a farmer's slave, beaten, bruised, toiling away in the heat of midday. One night, she was standing by her window looking out at the moonlit mountains, when she heard a small scratching in her tiny room. She turned to see and sitting on her bed, looking quite pleased with itself, was a baby Stormswallow. Of course she was frightened, but it soon became apparent that it wouldn't hurt her. It leapt down to the floor and ran to the window, glancing from her to the window and back. She opened the window for it but it just stood there, looking at her sadly. She realised it couldn't fly, and in sympathy she picked it up, crept down stairs and quietly let herself out. Putting the dragon down she said; 'go on, young one, be free like I wish I could be.' It  started to scamper off but then it stopped and turned back. She waved it off and began to make her way back to the house, then pain blossomed in her shoulder. The young dragon had scratched her.  but it wasn't a bad pain, it spread through her like fire, kindling a dragons spark in her. That night Flightingale flew free as a dragon.

 

Ka Ledasio, the skradder, by the amazing Speedyleaf.

Backstory: She is the mysterious leader of the mysterious Whitetalons, a group of dragons who all have the middle claw of their right foot white. She is feared among people, respected among dragons. Like a shadow upon a shadow she soars through the night, like a phantom of fleetness she swoops through the day. Any who meet her bow to get regalness, her strong will, her quick, clever eyes. Like a ghost of a story she flits on the edge of memory, always there, somewhere, yet just out of reach like a dream. She saw Flightingale's first flight, the young Stormswallower grow, Gabryall's loneliness broken. She was there for them all, leading in dreams, thoughts, small whispered words in their ears. Is she real? Or is she just a fantasy? Flying at the edge of minds. Maybe you will meet her, maybe you won't, who know but her and Whitetalons. Maybe, just maybe, she is with you now.

I don't like it when games control the camera for me. I'd prefer to have full control over the angles and whatnot myself.

yeah this is a real problem for me when i in battle

so when im at the shot filler station and the boat is under me i can make my view face down but i have to hold my mouse down for it to be stationary. this is anoying since i need both hands to fire and turn. its also the case for when i start moving the view just goes back to normal view, though i think that is alright.
