Airbus FBW Fix

Recommended Posts

I have also heard about the Airbus fbw tweak, which should be way better than the original fbw system.

A download link would be highly appreciated.

What is this tweak you guys are speaking of?

Fix? Why, what's wrong the FBW?

 

Aerosoft have said they will be refining the FBW systems of Airbus A318/319/320/321 in SP4. However, that won't be released until after they release the upcoming A330, and they can't give a date for the release of the A330. So in all liklihood we're looking at a SP4 release in early 2017.


Best regards,

This is quite interesting, I am going to try it out.


Asus Z87 // Intel i7-4770k // 16GB RAM DDR3 // GTX770 4GB // Thrustmaster T.16000 // 2x Saitek Throttle Quadrant // Saitek Rudder Pedals

Prepar3d V3.4 // Active Sky 2016 // ORBX FTX Global/Vector/OpenLC // FSDT GSX // EZCA

Planning with PFPX and TOPCAT, flying the Aerosoft A320 on IVAO and VATSIM

I'd be curious to hear everyone's feedback as well.  I may give it a try myself sometime.

Thanks for sharing. I have tried it, and it works without problems. The sidestick control is definitely improved and it "feels" much better than before. I always thought that the FBW finetuning in the Aerosoft buses is not superior and the behaviour of the aileron outputs too abrupt.

 

So far I have no issues. Liveries can be installed just by copying the respective [Fltsim.x] entries in the aircraft.cfg. This is easier than to use the configurator to install each single livery again.

Many thanks for your feedback! 

 

P.S. Keep in mind that the engines of the A320 CFM/IAE and A319 IAE were tuned as well. They were underpowered during the take-off phase originally.

Could someone clarify where this FBW "fix" for the Aerosoft bus came from?  About a year ago there was a temporary fix but nothing recent.  I have been poking around the Aerosoft A320 forums and there is no discussion of a FBW fix prior to the release of SP4.  Is there a link to the discussion? 

 

Thanks!

This, I realized with a "wow" during t/o roll :smile:

 

Two questions though:

 

1. It appears that the aircraft.cfg of the A318 remained untouched. Is that right?

 

2. What is actually the difference between the profiles for the high end and low end joysticks?

 

Cheers,

Chris

I think one of the Aerosoft developers created it for the old bus: http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/46910-my-alternative-to-aerosoft-fbw-v08f2-no-fsuipc/

Maybe the new one is based on it.

1. Indeed. I don't have much data for the A318 so it's progressing very slowly. Will be done, though

 

2. The difference lays mainly in the sensitivity/ control curving, as the low-end joysticks usually have much lower physical range available. I hope it's more clear :)

I have just installed these files but the aircraft has an erratic tremble while using the ailerons (when banking). Anyone knows what might cause this (i am using a Saitek x52 HOTAS, with FSUIPC slope set to -1, as suggested)?

 

Thanks!
