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.

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.

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

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,

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!

Vic, that you so much for taking the time to provide the FBW Fix. It has transformed the way the AS Bus handles with the Warthog joystick for me.

 

I am using V 0.9316 and had the erratic tremble through the ailerons as did dash8q400 flyer. The revised FBWBANK4.xml you provided sorted this out for me.

 

I fly for BA Virtual and flying the AS Bus had just become a chore. Previously with the NGX at some point on the STAR I would look forward to switching off the autopilot and doing some hand flying. Not so with the AS Bus, would wait to minimums as it was such a dog to hand fly. Your FBW fix has brought back a fair percentage of the enjoyment I used to have with the NGX. The feeling in the roll axis is just suberb.

 

I highly recommend this fix. I can't believe AS left the Bus in the state they did. For the price in so many aspects it is a brilliant add on, but the joystick/rudder controls sadly let it down.

very, very glad it works for you, guys. Even more, that you're liking it. Justice to the Airbus has to be done :) Enjoy :)

I tried the lowend version for the 320.

At low speeds, like in final approach and flare phase (!!!), the aircraft feels better - faster to respond to the sidestick inputs.

In normal circuit pattern I think the difference it's less noticeable.

 

Interesting and valuable tweak, thanks!

Hi have the version you linked earlier, and this fix... but now my load and fuel section does not work. I cannot enter any units for pax, cargo, or fuel. What did I do wrong?

 

edit, this was my fault I changed the atc_model line in the aircraft.cfg file and that looks like it messes up the load program of the aircraft. I have never flown an Airbus before so I cannot give you any critique of whether it works right or not, but thank you for your work making the AS more realistic. I have a cheap Saitek ST290 joystick and used the low quality installer.

Great work Vic. Thank-you

 

Out of interest, which joysticks are you all using?
