    Magenta FBW on the Airbus ??

    Does anyone have any implementation instructions for installing and or using the FBW.
    I have installed it on the main FSX computer and started it before starting FSX, but it does not want to work correctly.
    So does anyone have it going, and how to install and operate ?
    Regards.................Brian W.

    Hi Brian

    I tested it some time ago and had the same feeling like you! I done some corrections in the ini File, but at the End it was not that was i expected in a FBW.

    Now i have following plan: I will install 2 time easyFBW (for the left and right Sidestick) and wire the "Sidestick Priority" Switch in the Glareshield to the Joystick Buttons (CPT / FO). With that, i can activate the Sidestick on the left or right Side and even there is still FBW in action. Im in tests too to activate the LED's of the Priortiy Switches to see who are the "Master of commander"

    Regards
    Daniel

    The previous version was unflyable. The new version is rectified ( FBW 15), although the angles and control are less than what the real Airbus uses. I will give Enrico some more details on that shortly.
    Many thanks.......................Brian W.
