By default. and if positive it is increased. you can create your own by modifying the APFBWcoeff. they should work with most single aisle jet aircraft. If the cursor is negative. You can set the sensitivity of the joystick input as well. If you want to modify the coefficients yourself. some correctors are PID. Kp is the proportionnal gain. the sensitivity is reduced.JeeHellWare A320 FMGS Beta 19. If you increase Kp.2 User's Guide Version 19. the tuning of a PID requires a good balance between Kp. However.

If you decrease Ti. ε the error between the command and the output. As you can see. I must stress that it is NOT an easy task. . only PA320 coefficients are available. you reduce the static error. The coefficients have names which make them pretty straightforward. The default FSX A321 is NOT compatible. you'll need to select “AP/FBW coefficients” in the drop-down menu. I strongly advise you either use the PA320 or the iFDG A320-200 (its aerodynamics are not far from the PA320).ini file in the corresponding PERF folder. here is what you need to know: The formula used is of the form: At =Kp[t Td d  t 1  ∫ t dt ] dt Ti except for the OP MODES IAS. the system will anticipate the correction and reduce the oscillations around the command value. too big a Td and the system will stabilize with static error. separately for pitch and roll demand. In the AP/FBW software. Td the derivative gain and Ti the integral gain. others are PD only. Td and Ti. but it may be more prone to overshoot and even become completely unstable. If you increase Td. and you should at least have some knowledge of PID correctors to achieve anything flyable.

2.12. Resizing, rotating displays
You can freely move around any instrument/panel. Simply click on it and drag it where you want. Each display can be resized and rotated. Make sure the “Hide border” option is not checked in the right-click menu .Then, to resize, simply place the mouse cursor on the contour of the instrument until the usual resizing cursor appears. To rotate a display, right click on it then click on the direction you want to rotate (FCU, EFIS and overhead cannot be rotated). There are options to lock the displays position and to make them always stay on top of other windows, again through the right click menu. When you close the software, it stores the position, size and rotation of each window in a file called configXXX.cfg, where XXX is the name of the instrument. If you need to reset everything, just delete it.

2.13. Flight Simulator Aircraft
This software uses proprietary autopilot and FBW systems. As of beta 6 they are only tuned to the iFDG A320. You also need to make sure FSX pseudo FBW and flight control computers are disabled, by selecting off the corresponding buttons on the overhead panel (or you can tweak the FS aircraft.cfg file).
