Question Help! Time Driven Expression

I'm looking for a way to create an auto-flapping motion for wings but NOT connect to the time node. For example, my current expression to drive the wing movement is:

wing.rotateX = sin(time * frequency) * magnitude

The problem is I need to create a similar expression without using the Time node and I'm not sure how to go about doing that.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

Why don't you just do a looping driven key ?

How would you recommend doing that? I've attempted to use SDK but can not recreate the loop to run with the timeline. I can create a controller the animator would key from 0 - infinite that would act as the driver of the loop, but is there a way to do it automatically like the time expression would allow?

I think the real question is why you want it to be done "automaticaly" ? and why you don't want it to be connected the the time node ?
