3rd person character controller doesn't work well. Problem with rotation, backward and walking.

Hi guys, can anyone help me to solve a problem with the 3rd persone character controller???

the problem are 3:

  1. if i press S Key so it might go backward the character start flickering.

  2. if i rotate instead of rotating by 30 degrees it rotate by 180 degree at time.

  3. every 5 step it slow down for few secs.

I attach a video that i uploaded on youtube. Hope someone can help.

Thanks a lot.
