Airbus Fly-by-Wire

Recommended Posts

In a fly-by-wire system, the movements of flight controls are converted to electronic signals that are to the flight control computers which determine how the control surfaces will move. For the Airbus airliners, the flight controlcomputers retain ultimate control, and will not permit the pilots to fly outside specified performance limits. In practical terms this means that there is no direct link between, say, stick movement and elevator movement. flight Eenvelope Protection lcovers speed, AoA, pitch and bank angles, g, windshear. low energy etcI understand (perhaps wrongly) that there is such a direct link in Flight Simulator. If so, that implies that Airbus add-ons must somehow break that link and model the behaviour of the flight conntrol computers if they are to be realisistic.My question is which of the available Airbus add-ons actually offer realistic models of the flight control computers by applying these limits, for example pitch limited to 30o up and 15o down?

The default A321, The Wilco Airbus Vol 1 (Except for Overspeed protection) I believe the Aerosoft A320, not too sure about the Just Flight A320. On the FS9 side, I think the Airsimmers A320 does, but I may be wrong!Here's a video of the Wilco/Feelthere implementationhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBFDDhfRKNo
