is there an equivalent of maya's flow path in lw?..
i tried several approaches (serpent, inertia, trailer..) but none of them give such a smooth deformation of the object (the arrow) along the path. see pic.

so, whats the easiest way to create this quickly?..

here's what i have, i need several arrows deforming to the wind path so i tried it with linking the arrow to the particles.

see the non-deformed arrow below, id like it to conform to the path..
for now inertia and sperpent give jumbled up geometry.

btw. the above maya setup took about 2 mins..

Relativity, Dr. Snaker. I think that's the name.
One of the professors.

because it's located elsewhere, I think under the utilities tab
