Well quite easy I guess
It's more like FBW flying. You want to stop the roll, turn the wheel to the center and the roll stops.

I have a CH Yoke on the desktop setup.
The springs there are more for traction feel then centering.
Do you think it's the spring centering ? it's your hands that center :)

In real life the yokes get centered by the air going through the
ailerons.
I left centring of the yokes to my hand :P
You can use springs to center the yoke.
Do you have linked yokes or it a single yoke ?
How it's connected to the pot ? how it's connected to the control columns ?

Maurice ,
I'm no expert on the aerobatics A/C, but one of the pilots
that saw this video, is an aerobatic pilot that fly on Extra 300.
He said, that to fly knife edge like that on real AC, it should be at least at 140 kts, so you can't do short stop like that.

It's a fake according to RW pilots.
In an Israeli aviation forum it was discussed, and the only
way this can happen is with RC plane.
It a very good edit of the video combining RC that lost a wing and landed,
and the real AC.

Re: B767 CDU

Any news when one will be ready for the B76'ers The B767 cosmetic is a lot like the B747 with a rounder top surface surrounding the Screen. Fro now we will have the B777 in Tan. That is as close as I can get you for the next while. The FDS-PRO-M CDUs are compatible with Level-D B767 Software thanks...

Hi Peter,
Thanks for the info on the new CDU's.
Need a bit of clarifying on the connections to the CDU.
There is one USB for the interface (keyboard) and second one
a composite for the LCD ?

Any news when one will be ready for the B76'ers :D

Thanks,

Ran.
