>>1256107>The reason you don't is that one of the pluses of FBW controls is to save weight from the hundreds of meters necessary for direct hydraulic/mechanical linkages. (compared to regular servo assisted systems).
Yes, but there is no need in heavy-duty cables. Just bike-tier brake cables would do just fine, since they don't need to transfer much force.
It will be definitely lighter, simpler and more reliable, than servo, but heavier than simple side stick. >You could also simulate feedback from the control surfaces using servos (even driving syms can simulate feedback), but that would be yet another point of failure in the system and would make learning how to fly the plane take longer since the handling is not as consistent.
I guess this is why Airbus haven't implemented feel in their sidestick.>What I don't get, and is a problem in both airbus and boing designs, is why the trim controls are completely separate from the stick/yoke.
On Boeings they have buttons for trimming on yoke, afaik.
