Thank you so much, that was very helpfull!
But now I have encountered a new problem. When I recreate your RC graph I have to make the start segment not bendable, otherwise it tries to follow the path. This works perfectly on a straight path, but if the path is climbing up on the Z axis it breaks. Also, both bendable and non-bendable options create a little jump near the corner. I have now attached my max file as well.
