The Fearless Flyer
E5 The basic controls and fly by the wire
Show Notes

James and Grant discuss the basic flying controls; ailerons, elevator and the rudder, we also talk about fly-by-wire control systems then finish up on speedbrakes/spoilers.
Around 16 minutes into the pod we go a bit heavy discussing the secondary effects of the ailerons and rudder, this goes for around 3 minutes then we return back to the basics, so stay with us if it gets bit overwhelming, we return to normal operations around 3 minutes later.
