Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel!
…. So the best-known feature of the Airbus fly-by-wire system is the sidestick. I did a whole video on the sidestick, which you might wanna checkout right here. So by moving the sidestick, you actually move mechanical levers and dampers which sit below the sidestick and this movement gets converted into a digital signal. Okay, let’s say we were to make a left turn. Our left turn digital signal then runs by wire to a set of seven Flight control computers. The first one is ELAC 1. Which stands for Elevator and Aileron Computer. ELAC 2 acts as a backup in case ELAC 1 fails. So the ELAC 1 checks the received digital signal, before sending it off to the flight control surface. What I mean by “checking the signal” you’ll see in a minute. So from ELAC our left turn digital signal then yet again runs through a wire/electric cable to one of the hydraulic actuators on the left-hand aileron and on the right-hand aileron, where our digital signal is then converted into a mechanical force moving the left-hand aileron upwards and the right-hand aileron downwards. Does that make sense so far?
I hope you enjoy the video and it’s been helpful to you!
Thank you very much for your time!
Wishing you all the best!
Your “Captain” Joe
