Guys,

Thought I should share this with you. In the latest Royal Aeronautical Society Journal is a review of FB with input from a test pilot (Captain Eric M. Brown, CBE, DSC, AFC, MA, FRAeS, RN). I won't re-type the whole thing here but they did arrive at some (in his words) "pretty accurate" control settings for the X45 they were using. As follows:

Pitch 0, 1, 3, 7, 9, 14, 18, 23, 27, 33
Roll 0, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 10, 12, 17
Yaw, 0, 0, 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, 11, 14, 16

Quite low as you can see. Maybe we should all try these before whining the aircraft aren't modelled correctly....

Wow http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

I must have mine set up wrong:

mine are something like 10 25 50 75 100 100 ...

so what would those settings do?

The article also suggests that you may want to increase the end values to around 100 to obtain full deflection in a dogfight but I'm dying to try these out when I get home.

Just which aircraft are these settings supposed to simulate? They turn a fighter into a slug.

Under normal circumstances a Hurricane Mk.1 should eventually be able to pull around onto the tail of a 109e in a horizontal fight. Attempting to do so on these settings gets you very dead, very fast.

I think these are possibly for either a specific transport or bomber.

They cannot be accurate for a fighter if they produce a result which is known to be untrue.
